  • 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.

  • Largest dinosaur skeleton. T-Rex skeleton as well. From earth formation, different birds and other animals discovers with an entire lab full of bottles with species. Very educational and detailed explanation. A little disappointed that not all exhibition rooms have English translations. You should go in this museum. You need definitely 2hs in that. 8Euros and 5 Euros in a group of 10 for adults.
  • A wonderful place, a lot of people in the museum as well as in front of it to checkout. A small tip, you can buy tickets online through the museum website. At the entrance to the museum you will be asked to go to the information about collecting a free ticket form. T-Rex makes the most impression in the museum.
  • Absolutely my favourite place in Berlin! The main attraction is the T-rex of course but all the others dinosaurs mounted are really impressive too. Entering the museum to be welcomed by a brontosaurus in the hall it's really amazing. There's also a really nice taxidermy collection. If you want to buy souvenirs this is the place, they've got minerals and quite literally fossils for sale
  • The 5€ I paid to enter here as a student were the best invested 5€ in a long time! This museum is huuuuuuuuuge, and everything is really interesting. I stayed there 3 hours and couldn't see everything in detail, I should have prepared more time. All nature history aspects were treated, it was really easily understandable, really interactive. The collections are impressive!
  • Great variety of animals, plants, rocks and more. Interesting ways for kids and adults to learn about nature. Interactive games to keep the kids entertained.
