  • Amazing display of dinosaurs from tiny tributes to T-Rex. In addition of the main attraction, there is also a floor dedicated to stuffed animals. Visitors of all ages would enjoy this museum. You can lavishly spend around 2-3 hours here. A good expo of ice age fossils, gemstones and other exhibits. Opens daily from 9am to 5pm. Ticket prices are around 12€ for adults and children under 17 can visit for 6€ with valid ID.
  • Lovely natural history museum, some great exhibits! My 3yr old (and I) loved the dinosaurs. Fantastic collection of semi precious stones on display too. Would definitely go back without a 3yr old in tow - it'd allow me to take some better pics without being on toddler time! Look out for Lucy - she's important.
  • THIS is the best museum of all Frankfurt! Take your kids and spend a day there! They will never ever forget the snake that eats a wild hog and the dinosaurs and it will be an amazing day! I love this place since i can walk and i deeply believe that EVERY child in the world will love that place too! (For the coffee fans there is a coffe place inside as well! ;-) )
  • Such an impressive museum! If I could give 7 stars I'll do that. Interesting 🤓 place for kids and adults as well. Good exhibition along with different interactions.
  • For me one of the most fascinating places I have ever visited. Nature brought close, moving, amazing, stunning, controversial at times. Teach and show to your children, teach yourself, your friends....
