Warning if you visit in the near future: much of the museum is under construction/renovation. But there's still plenty to see. If you like Natural History Museums, check it out. They accepted my Student Museum Pass no problem, and many of the exhibits were in...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.

We went here as a last minute decision, the only TRex in Europe is here we were told, not a massive one but still worth a look for 8 euros. They're currently expanding upstairs so there wasn't anything to see up there which was a...More

The exhibition was well done but the staffs there were not so friendly including the ticketing lady in blond shortcut. She seemed to be pleased to serve German guests but not Asians...?! Not so many people there speak good level of English and everyone looks...More

The centre 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.
