Its a good small scale history museum. Displays are good, informative. They have few activities in the museum for kids. For grown up kids, they conduct some guided tours, additional informative sessions. I have not attended these, thus I dont know about it. There is small cafe in the campus for small hungers. There is large play ground outside and... More

Se voce nao for um historiador, geologo ou outra coisa do tipo, este museu é um pouco chato...tem muita coisa pra se ver, mas nada muito interessante... if you are not a historian, geologist or something like that, this museum is a bit boring...there are lots of things to see, but nothing really interesting...

Not so interesting. Only few records for kids on the audio guide. They got bored so quickly. It was though easy to access the three floors with child stroller.

With many NH museums around the world targeting pre-schoolers as their main audience, it is a delight to see one that actually properly displays its collections. The museum houses perhaps the best collection anywhere of Jurassic marine reptiles, mostly from the Holzmaden shales with astonishing preservation. However there is also a large section of Triassic reptiles and dinosaurs, as well... More

We only had time for the building with all the dinosaur exhibits. At the price and plentiful parking, it's time well spent! Basically speaking, it's two floors of exhibits, not that much, but plenty enough to spend a very enjoyable 90 minutes or so. The only problem was the many sections that only had German descriptions and the portable devices... More

The museum spans two buildings: dinos'n like-stuff are at the western end of Rosenstein Park (Museum am Löwentor), while mammals'n "modern" stuff are at the eastern end, in the Schloss Rosenstein building. Yes, I've always had a crunch for dinos, I have to admit. But Museum am Löwentor is a very fine museum / attraction: well laid out, modern, attractive,... More

The museum is located in a very nice park and the walk to reach it already very relaxing. The normal price of the ticket costs 4 Euro per person. There are many dioramas with very accurate representations of the animals and their environment. All the explanations are only in German so, unless you are really fluent in this language, you...

Also, flying and swimming reptiles from the same period, and mammoths and mastodons, too, with great temporary exhibitions as well (I'm planning on going to the swimming reptile exhibit). Great for kids, and, for a special treat, have your kid celebrate his or her birthday here!

You have children, interested in Dinosaurs? It is a must to go there. Well presented. Easy to reach by public transport. It is close to Wilhelma Zoo.
