  • Loved the real fossils of these gigantic dinosaurs. A must-see for everyone. That apart, there isnt much to se, but these dinosaur fossils are so worth it.  more »
  • Very interesting Museum and definitely worth a visit! The only problem was the inexperienced guys who you thought had no parents to collect!

  • Exciting the Museum für Naturkunde entertainment for two to three hours. The giant Dino skeletons and Tristan are most certainly impressive. The Sielmann exhibition, in which animals and nature with modern equipment are tangible made, very well liked. Interestingly, we found the insights into the art of preparation. As Berlin can again go once every few years and look, what there is new.

  • Place definitely worth to check out in Berlin. Exhibition is full of awesome stuff! You can go there with your friends, kids or girlfriend/boyfriend! Cool formalin room! Never seen anything like this before! 10/10!
  • For the people passionate about nature, earth's dynamics, minerals and evolution, this is a place to visit. I spent here about 7 hours among dino skeletons and rare minerals. The explanations are bilingual, which is important. Definitely a museum worth visiting!
  • Great museum full of dinosaurs, fossils, taxidermy and many other specimens. Very educational and the full size T-Rex (housed in her own room) is definitely well worth a visit. There’s also a great room full of vintage wet specimens - the jars reach from floor to ceiling and it makes for quite a spooky photo!
  • Worth visiting multiple times. Lots of kids on holidays so be patient. ;)
  • Beautifully displayed array of natural wonders - from dinosaurs to spiders to fossils. Very impressive museum!
