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

It was really great! We could use our student cards which made the entry half the price (3.5eu). We watched everything thoroughly room by room: the dinosaurs, the history of Earth, the system of the animals, the minerals. We spent there around 4 hours, sometimes together, sometimes individually! The periodical exhibition was about the flies, which was more interactive. Only... More

... But what happend to the english version? Exiting exhibition, but with 3 little children i missed more interactive opportunities like quiz: "How tall is the dinasour etc" and touching Stones (not real ones of course), meteor - a little old fashioned. We could bring our own carrier into the museum - great!

Although children might enjoy it, the museum doesn't have that much to offer to adult visitors. It's an average museum, too poorly lit, and some collections are closed to the public. The mineralogy section is outstanding, though, and so is the section on meteorites. Except these, the rest is average. Worth an hour of your time if you like minerals... More

My boyfriend (who loves fossils) and I visited on our trip to Berlin. We decided to go here despite being so close to museum island, as this museum is a little bit further away. It was remarkable the fossils, dinosaur constructions, space info and gemstones were truly a sight to see. I would recommend this museum to anyone visiting Berlin... More
