Big museum with lots to see, starting from skeletal remains and minerals to taxidermied animals. Almost all of the taxidermy has been done expertly, excluding couple oddities. It's a great museum to visit and worth the entry cost!

If you are interested into dinosaurs - that’s the right place. But also other very interesting things. Easily to reach.

This museum has a lot to see, not only dino skeleton. Which was really cool. I was really into huge stone collection, they looked so cool and different. Costed 8€ which is quite okay for this place.

I've never been to a museum like this so I was very excited seeing the dinosaur fossils ! Very informative and an awesome place to spend 2 hours ! Too bad not all animals had an English explanation .

We have been spoiled by the way the Natural History Museums in the United States exhibit their specimens. They create a scene for each specimen. Here in Berlin you have a jumbled collection of specimens in cabinets and jars filled with alcohol to preserve the...More

Given what we had read in the guide book, we were expecting a lot to see. When we got there, I guess only a small section of the museum was opened due to refurbishment. A lot of the displays were looked up. Given the lack...More

An "old school" natural history museum. Unless you're traveling w kids and absolutely have to give them a dinosaur fix, then I don't particularly recommend this as an adult attraction with so many other sights in Berlin to see. The one particularly different exhibit was...More

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the

Like everyone else, I'd say 2 - 3 hours to really enjoy the experience. A very user friendly museum.
