  • We came in out of the rain to find a room filled with impressive dinosaur skeletons. There was also a special "Tristan" exhibit with a T-Rex skeleton for those interested in dinosaurs. We enjoyed a sp...  more »
  • The Museum's collection is very impressive-especially zaspirtovannyh collection of fish and a collection of meteorites and minerals. The children really enjoy watching through binoculars in the Hall of dinosaurs when cause binoculars on dinosaurs, they are on the screen start to grow into muscle, skin and start running around the room. From the collection of fish zaspirtovannyh I was just thrilled. When you come into this room and see huge racks the height of about 4 meters all Akimbo flask with backlight, I remember Harry Potter in the vault of secrets. A collection of fossil dinosaurs are also very good. The children really like enlarged copies of spiders, flies, fleas. My husband and I climbed to the top floor and through the glass doors closed, it was evident the enormous rooms with shelves with his stuffed animals-continued Storage of secrets)))

  • I took my 2-year-old daughter and she likes to see the bones of dinosaurs (really awesome) and the pickled animals (countless species). For those who like biology can stay all afternoon. I think I would go without my daughter. It is interesting also to adults.

  • The first room you enter is a great display of dinosaur skeletons, with imaginative interactive installations to make these creatures come alive. I do think this alone was worth the 8€. The other rooms explored a variety of animal species, as well as space exploration and an entire room dedicated to minerals and gems. Worth a visit regardless of German fluency.
  • The dino skeletons are definitely worth seeing. Pretty impressive. And the story telling of the comet mission with Rosetta & Philea was compelling. But the museum is pretty small. 2 floors seemed to be blocked off, with no proper notice of if it was closed (many people made the mistake of going upstairs to finally go back down). So this small part of the museum made it seem like many things were missing for a natural history museum. Maybe worth trying again when all floors are open.
  • Nice and modern presentation. A lot of things to see. The audioguide is really usefull. You can go deeper into various subjects like evolution, univers and planets formation & of course nice dinosaurs :-)
  • Very nice museum for nature and science lovers. Though, if you have visited the nature history museum in New York City already, you might be slightly disappointed from this one. The Berlin version is very small compared to NYC.
  • Went here to see archaeopteryx and Tristan the T-Rex. Was pleasantly surprised by the giant room of specimens in jars on display. There are some great exhibits, though some of them seem to be missing explanations. The animal room doesn't seem to have a coherent order, but nice all the same.
