Pathetically, they have resorted to describing the Berlin Archaeopteryx as "the Mona Lisa of evolutionary biology". I beg to differ. The most well-preserved specimen of this most amazing discovery deserves far and away more attention. See with your own eyes the work of Mother Nature, which has taken millions and millions of years. See for your own eyes the intricate... More

Some exhibits were not open for the visitors due to renovation. But it is recommended for people who can appreciate evolution. At the end

You'll never see a larger dinosaur skeleton ever! Fact! It's even a worl record breaker. They haven't the largest collection in the world, but it's a high quality one. Well worth a wet afternoon visit if you have a spare hour.

We had a really nice morning in the museum, both the kids had a lot of fun. Firstly the dinosaur exhibit was great with some huge skeletons and interactive stuff for the kids the there is a space exhibition which our oldest found interesting. The panda exhibition was fun and all the animals entertained our youngest. A really nice museum... More

Myself and my brother visited here in late 2014 and had a lot of fun. The collection of different species is amazing and on par with other great natural museums around the world. They even have a very cool space exhibit where you sit on a circular sofa and look up at an amazing display of how earth was made... More

best place we visited in Berlin. If you have children or students take a student card with you and they get in for free, but it's only 6 euros each per adult to get in anyway. lots to see. well worth a visit

Took a school group of 23 Science students from the Uk. A beautiful entrance dinosaur displays and the kids were hooked. The panda display and evolution display were well liked. The specimen hall was out of this world and its was gutting for me as a biology teacher not to be able to get closer and see the specimen jars... More

Honestly I was hoping to see more about dinosaurs (actually it was my little sister's whish) but there were not to many. I considered very unique the scenario with "how the universe was created", the collections of gemes, the fly/musquito exhibition and mostly the one about the Panda. I did find out many curious things. I spent in the museum... More

For anyone into BIG dinosaur skeletons and the cosmos, then this is a place well worth a visit. A very well laid out museum with some of the best interactive technology that we have yet found. While we were there the place was filled with many young German school children from kindergarten through to primary. This was a reflection of... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
