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.

This is a superb place where there are so many exhibits and photographs. We are friends with a taxi dermist who worked at the museum

For all visitors from abroad - there are two museums of natural science, you can walk from one to the other (about 20 minutes walk through a park). The Rosensteinmuseum is not that big (compared to London) but very nicely displayed because you see the animals in their natural surroundings (e.g. five lions that are hunting an antilope). So there... More

The Museum accounts to huge collection . One would easily require 2 hours to cover this and an Audio guide in English is available for all at the cost of 2 EUR A must visit for all

I visited the Nautral History Museum with not high expectations, thinking that the best of what Germany has to offer would be in one of its larger cities. I was wrong! With such a thorough, engaging collection, I am glad that I visited! With easy to use audio guides in English, I was able to enjoy the museum just as... More
