Fantastic display of dinosaurs from tiny trilobites to t-rex. In addition o the main attraction, there is also a floor dedicated to stuffed animals. Visitors of all ages would enjoy this museum.

The museum need to have English description about fossils, it's only German. Foreign Tourists don't understand about it. All others are good.

This is a great place to spend a rainy day, with or without kids. There is always something new to discover, so can be visited more than once.

Had a great day at the museum, comprehensive displays, really interesting collections. If you don't speak German it's still good, although you may get some benefit from the audioguides. Definately worth it.

It's worth the trip! Thre are lots of amazing things to see. If you are a fan of science, it's a must see in Frankfurt. Nice place to take the kids, but it's also really fun for all ages.

The dinosaurs are amazing but not the rest. Get the listening device. It makes a difference. I paid 8 euros to enter on a Sunday. The listening device (guide) is 3 euros...

Hi, to 99% i think to remember that we used the credit card because like to save the cash for dining or whatever else. But you can call them too or have the hotel find out for you. To be 100% sure. 👩
