  • מוזאון עם אוסף פוחלצים ותערוכות על בעלי חיים וטבע. מתאים גם לילדים. אל תפספסו גם את החנות שבפנים! וואו! 
  • Not only the Hall with the dinosaur skeletons, which is popular in children is well worth the visit, but there's also a terrific show wall with animal preparations, which illustrates the evolution, documentation, why modern drugs are so much more realistic than traditional, a grandiose collection of minerals and a modern and very illustrative exhibition about comets. The presentation of the Tyrranosauros Rex Tristan Otto was a positive surprise. I was afraid of gimmicky horror effects. The only Downer is that the butterfly collection was not accessible.

  • The Museum is educational and fun at the same time good: excellent for young and old. the charm of the prehistoric world is apparent already from the hall where some specimens of giant herbivorous dinosaurs are reconstructed. the view of Tristan, then, really leaves you breathless. If you make the museum card is included in the ticket!

  • 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.
