Disappointed by how small the collection is. Everything is on one floor. Mid 70 degs outside and not much cooler inside. Hence, an hour was enough time unless you want to study anything in detail. Not a patch on the London Natural History Museum for example where i could spend many hours but €6 entrance fee seemed appro priate. Highlights... More

Countless amazing exhibits topped by the gigantic dinosaurs. Something to see for every taste. Not for the kids to enjoy. Moderately priced with 5€ per adult, pre school children free of charge. The only downsize is the temperature is soaring on a hot summers day. The glass roof turned the museum into a sauna and it was impossible to stay... More

...this is great! A big plus to the U-bahn station as there were signs that I noticed from the U-bahn that this is the place to get off if going to the Natural History Museum. My main point was to see the dinosaurs and the megalodon jaws - so no disappointment here.

Very good experience with my two children. Went on a Sunday, easy to get in and around. Well laid out with some spectacular exhibits. The dinosaur exhibit is the best I've ever seen and includes the tallest dinosaur model in the world which is amazing to behold in the flesh, only figuratively of course, until you view the dinosaurs through...

My husband and I visited the museum for our children's sake but we all thoroughly enjoyed the numerous displays. The dinosaurs and interactive views are the sow stopper but individually enjoyed the geology, taxidermy and insect sections. Displays were interesting and accessible for all ages. A great museum!

It was a nice museum with lots to look at and activities to engage in. The only down side is that there are no English translations next to the exhibitions, so if you want to know anything about what you are looking at, buy an audio tour.

If you like natural history museums, this one is sure to please! It has the largest/tallest dinosaur skeleton in the world, and some amazing taxidermy. The audio guide was really good, and all information in the museum was provided in german and english. Be warned that the museum does not have a/c. Not a problem the majority of the time,... More

This museum is worth visiting due to the fact that it houses the largest dinosaur in the world, which is impressive and undoubtedly the highlight of the museum. However the other sections of this museum such as he taxidermy section are also interesting. The entrance fee is also very reasonable. Located on the same street as the hauptbahnhof so it... More

We came here mainly for our 10-year-old daughter so she could see the huge dinosaur skeletons. After exiting the U-Bahn station (U6-Naturkundemuseum), we had just a little trouble finding the right way. There was some construction, and we couldn't see any street signs. We then headed into the right direction, and the museum is in a very old building that... More

My husband and I had an excellent morning visiting the Natural History Museum, which was around the corner from our hotel. It was fantastic, like walking onto the set of the Night at the Museum, a traditional building full of character. It has an amazing collection of dinosaur bones, a fantastic Space section, and a host of other interesting/interactive areas.... More
