“One of the museums of natural history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Phenomenal place. Systematic, rich in presentation, although huge still visitor friendly. Amazing! For comparison I liked it much better than the New York one.

“Huge”

A very historic and monumental museum. Nothing like the small museums we have in Canada! Huge architecture and endless amounts of things to see

“Good range of exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We really enjoyed the Natural History Museum partly because it is in such a nice building and the interior and exterior architecture is incredible, but also because it's really well laid out and quite interactive. It was very easy to follow with a lot of the information being given in both German and English and there was so much to see and learn. We also went into the special exhibition that they have at the moment, which costs extra but if you're 18 or under it's free. It was called Bodies: the Exhibition and is all about the human body and has hundreds of body parts on display, really interesting but be warned that all of the things on display are real which we didn't realise until we asked at the end!

“learned some terrific things”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

the museum is very well organized, starting with the history of our planet, going through all the stages of development of human and animal life and presenting some great simulators and interactive screens intended to help you understand your origins or the way certain things function the way they do.
