  • Very lovely great for kids
  • Very informative museum with lots if things to see for children. Unfortunately the information in the exhibits is only in German. But there is still plenty to look at. The Grund floor hosts changing exhibits. The other three floors are non-changing. But in the Easter season they have an exhibit with baby chicks. Very adorable even if one is no longer allowed to actually hold the chicks. The top floor hold a huge collection of insects from all over the world, which is as creepy as it is beautiful.
  • Absolutely fascinating, everything from the solar system to the eco system is covered, a perfect spot for anyone with an interest in life’s wonders.
  • My 7 year old loved the Museum! Lots of mechanical interaction, really hands on. Wolves exhibition in DE, FR and EN languages.
  • It's nice and some of it is in English too. The size is good for a short visit.
