  • often unjustly neglected by specialists of the quick tour of city and spoke to ease this museum remains a true wonder despite an aging museography. The fossils of the Messel coincided so close those Jurassic or the fantastic parade of the origins. A true happiness of full Explorer spoke rarity of specimens presented as the couaga. What happiness!

  • My visit with my six year old son was great. One of the few museum he actually enjoyed. I Would have given it 5 stars but unfortunately there wasn't enough translation to understand the orgin of the majority of the things represented in the museum. Each item had a story to tell but if you don't understand German or have a translater, you,ll never know it...
  • Not bad for its limited size. Kids go for the dinosaurs which are represented by a nicely chosen collection of skeletal casts. There is also a baby triceratops to climb, for the youngest visitors. Theme exhibitions once in a while. As of today (this review), one about underground fauna.
  • Very nice museum. Great collection of dinosaur skeletons, fossils and animal exhibits (especially birds). Certainly worth a visit.
  • I would expect more interactivity nad less dead birds. Souvenir shop very poor.
  • You can experience a great piece of natural history here. Kids liked the big dinosaurs' skeletons the most. A big collection of birds and animals is impressive.

Where to stay in Frankfurt

Hauptwache, Konstablerwache, and the Main river enclose the heart of the city, an area of activity with a range lodging options. The old section of the Sachsenhausen area is also an epicenter of activity with a range of accommodations; it also offers a vibrant nightlife. For short stay, consider lodging in the Bahnhofsviertel area near the main train station, which provides easy access to the city center and to international train transport.
