“Give yourself plenty of time for this Museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We went to the museum to see the amazing display of the human body that opened on that day. However, the museum's permanent displays are really worth spending time to look around. This museum must be one of the best in the world - certainly compared to most off the others that I have visited in my lifetime. But even if you only have a couple of hours it will still be worth your while to go there just to see the building. And the coffee shop is really super as well.

“Someone here has a sense of humor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great museum if you are at all interested in natural history. Our favorite part was the computer that takes your picture and then transforms it into a neanderthal! Loved those whiskers! Fabulous gem and mineral collection; don't miss it!

“a walk through nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I have never seen so many different and striking stones! I have learned a lot of new interesting bird spieces! My only problem was that not all signs had a translation in english!

“Largest collection of stones and dead animals I have ever seen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

The building of the Natural History Museum alone is worth the visit. It's amazing and huge,which beautiful ceilings. The first floor mainly consists of various stone and meteorite collections, which can be quite boring after the fifth room stacked up with little bricks of stone. However, the second floor has the largest collection of stuffed animals I have ever seen (larger than the one in London). Halls filled with birds, and even more halls filled with reptiles... And even a moving dinosaur. I can not think of an animal that I have not seen there. If you like this kind of stuff, it's definitely worth the visit.

“Worth visiting, need more than a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We visited on our last day and wished we had more time, there are so many things to see in this museum. Loved the stuffed animals and dinosaurs, minerals too but don't spend too much time there, lots more to see further on.
