I have young children and they are absolutely fascinated about dinosaurs. This museum has a good selection of them, and also in the street that are 2. Children love to observe them. It also has a very good variety of birds, animals, fish. Very good to show children nature in a different way.

Very rich, varied collections, gorgeous and impressive dinosaur skeletons, great for adults (I went with my boyfriend) and for kids (they were everywhere and obviously super excited with what was on offer). The café is a bit loud (kids again), but that's a very minor thing and not really even part of the visit. Would definitely recommend.

Quite some dinosaur stuff! Also some mummies (not sure what they were doing there) and during our visit also Lucy was there. Furthermore I got quite excited for the Tasmanian wolf, which is extinct since a while. Some cool diorama's are a bit hidden in a dead-end alley...

We visited Frankfurt on Monday, so this museum was kinda default, all the others were closed. What a luck! Otherwise I would skip it. There was the famous Lucy there!

Lots of exhibits about dinosaurs and fossils. Some information in English, but it was random which bits were translated. The cases of stuffed animals and birds were boring and dated

I can only give it "average" because one natural history museum to me is much like another, and we concentrated entirely on the dinosaurs and pre-historic mammals, because we only had limited time. But everything seemed well-displayed, and there was a reasonable proportion of original fossils as opposed to casts. Worth noting that after 10am you can park for free... More

Kids had a wonderful time exploring and seeing things like dinosaurs animals and all things nature. Kind of pricy at 9 euro per adult but worth it. We went in a Sunday morning and it wasn't too crowded. There are guided tours and plenty of helping staff around to answer questions. I would say about half the size of the... More

Not the best museum I haver been to, but if you have kids, they will love the dinossauros, and all other animals. The Museum should have English description for foreigners. You can take your baby stroller.
