Wide selection of artifacts and very child friendly. Impressive collection of Dinosaur exhibits. However an english translation of the exhibits names and description would be appreciated.

It's ok. Not everything is translated to English. If it was between seeing this and seeing the castle go with the castle.

Frankfurt has several attractions and Natural History Museum is one of them worth visiting. We had dinner party arranged by Grohe, Germany in this museum. The authorities arrange such functions to get more visitors and thereby income. Right under the skeleton of dinosaurs, we had dinner, the gala dinner had famous German TV stars performing. This was some years back... More

This museum is full of awesome natural history on many levels. The prices are very reasonable, especially for students! Great experience if you have the time while in Frankfurt- need a good few hours to see everything.

It was rather refreshing to see huge set-ups of dinosaurs and creatures after a rather contemplative morning at the Staedel. I felt like a kid again LOL. They have an extensive collection of bones, fossils and specimens. I enjoyed the section featuring "body parts in a jar" most. It would have been much better if the descriptions get translated.

Finally I got to stand & explore some dinosaur skeletons, I've always been fascinated by their size & from a young age I've always wanted to experience a T-Rex in person but only ever found myself observing them on TV. My inner child was well pleased.

Nice and informative museum, though not everything is translated to English. Costs 9 euros for adults. I enjoyed dinosaurs the most.

This museum is a great place to explore dinosaurs, birds, land- and sea-animals. They also have great exhibits on geology, minerals and rocks. Few exhibits have English labels/texts, but I believe one can rent audio guides in other languages. Seems very popular with schools - we saw plenty of school classes.Definitely worth a visit!

Interesting a lot to see, but very little translated to English. Over 3 floors I think they were in the process of changing some exhibits at the time we visited.

I liked my visit to the museum, quite big and with a vast assortment of stuffed animals, dinosor skeletons, history/science section etc. Plan a good 4 hours for it. Ticket was around Euro 6-8. The only minus of the museum is that it lacks the English description translations next to the German description. There were some with English, but the... More
