A fun museum that is worth spending a couple
Of hours in. The animal display is extensive, though some of the animals had been crudely stuffed/painted. Lots to do with the dinosaur section a highlight.
Also, it's housed within a very beautiful building - it's worthwhile visiting to see the spectacular dome and paintings.

Not as large as some similar venues but this may have helped focus the mind on all exhibits, of which most were truly interesting and well laid out. The interactive exhibits make great use of modern technology and watch out for thr TRex!

A great natural history museum and very accessible from the main town. Has some great exhibits, some of which are interactive, so you get a good dose of history. The museum is lovely and clean and the architecture is impressive. The down points for me was the temperature in the building. The time we went it must have been 45 deg celsius in the building, no air condition and I felt like I was going to pass out a couple of times. Not very comfortable at all, was such a shame.

Unfortunately we visited during a heatwave and the museum not having AC was uncomfortable so we rushed through as it was too stuffy to linger. Amazing building with grand staircase leading up to an upstairs coffee shop. Lots of stuffed animals and reptiles fish birds etc. Plus exhibit of fossils and meteorological things.
If you enjoy this kind of stuff it's ok but the displays feel more 19th century than more engaging modern approach. So if you have limited time skip this and go to a natural history museum in your own country

The Naturhistorische Museum has one of the worlds largest mineral collections, I wasn't aware how interested I would be in that, so after spending two hours and still being in one of the first five halls I realised that one should come visit the museum quite early in order to have enough time, it is really spectacular!
