“Been to a lot of Science and Tech Museums...this one is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Planned to just spend 3 hours here (11-2pm) but we were the last to leave at 5pm!! Although many parts of the museum are only german, there are enough parts in english to keep you reading...and for the kids it didn't matter because there were so many hands on exhibits that they just ran from room to room to room touching, turning, playing, etc....was really really good!

Tips: The lockers in the downstairs coatroom are free (returns your one euro when you re-open it)...keep your tickets as you'll need them to access the restaurant on the second floor....do get an audioguide, although it hung from my neck more than at my ear, its only 3 euro's and provided lots of interesting info....

“5 floors- some great, some just ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

we went with two young children (2 and 4 years old). They loved the aquarium, the reptile display, the interactive science part and the human body display. some of the (stuffed) animals displays were too scary or too boring. some spots (tyrannosaurus, dragon, crocodile and snakes...) might be scary for some children. altogether worthwhile, but invest a few minutes in planing the visit so you won't waste all your time on dark gloomy stuffed rodents displays, where exciting hands on science is right next door.

“You need an entire day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Haus der Natur has expanded and includes a wide variety of displays and interactive activities. There is a wonderful aquarium! The Doppler exhibit was fascinating. We wished we would have had the grandkids with us, because they would have loved it too.

“Cool place if it is raining when with kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Being from Florida, I am used to science/fun exhibits. This spot is another one. Good if you have nothing else to do as it does help spend the day with the kids. Nothing fabulous, however, i have been a few times since the kids like it.
