I love this museum in a way. You definitely have to go there to see dinosaurs skeletons and get in a whale. Their collection of rocks is really impressive as well. But it's when you will go to first floor where it all gets scary and not nice - they have tens of thousands of stuffed animals there, some of... More

There are a lot of interesting things to see and learn, but all the information are only in German lenguage and not understandable by all the people. It's a pity because you miss a lot of knowledge and the importance of the fossils and all the other installations. Anyway i suggest ot everybody to visit it especially with children.

The museum need to have English description about fossils, it's only German. Foreign Tourists don't understand about it. All others are good.

This museum is filled with families and of course for small children there is lots of exiting things to see! Dinosaur bones, fossils, gems, stuffed animals etc. However it is all a bit samey to other Natural History museums and not a scratch on the London Natural History.

Museums in Frankfurt are all nice and very well maintained. Including this one. Not very large but sufficient. Rather disappointing because almost all of the dinousaurs bones/fossils here are just replica, mostly from the original bones that saved in American Natural History Museum in New York or in Natural History Museum London. But for an introduction or as a starter,... More

This is a great place to spend a rainy day, with or without kids. There is always something new to discover, so can be visited more than once.

Had a great day at the museum, comprehensive displays, really interesting collections. If you don't speak German it's still good, although you may get some benefit from the audioguides. Definately worth it.
