I have been to bigger natural history museums, but this one has the best dinossaurs skeletons, including the most complete T-Rex ever found. Good collection of natural rocks and gems too.

I can only review the dinosaurs here as that was the sole reason for our visit. They are fabulous and well worth a stop. Also, the museum was not crowded at all so we were able to sit and enjoy looking at the dinosaurs. Now,...More

When visited mid September the upper floors were off limits. Other parts are empty on the groundfloor. So only a small percentage of the surface is open for 8 euros which is really expensive. Feels like a museum under construction. Plus many placades and posters...More

The museum has a lot of natural history stored inside, animal specimens, fossils and stones. The highlight however stands tall the second you enter the museum - A completely preserved skeletal specimen of a Brachiosaurus and an Archaeopteryx.

Visiting in Aug 2018 - most part of the museum (e.g. the upper two floors) is under renovation - so not accessible. Not much to do or see, except perhaps the Dino. Most of the info in German.

A very nice museum, big enough that you won't get bored easily. Tristan Otto T-Rex exhibit is very cool. Only minutes walk from the Berlin Hauptbahnhof.

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
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

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