Museum hosts a few skeletons of dinosaurs (yes, T-Rex icluded) - and even only because of that it's worth visiting. About an houe and a half is enough time to see it all.

My kid is a DINO fanatic, we crossed the museum 2 times and he enjoyed so much...next him so did we; Not a really big museum, but they had just enough for every one; who doesn't like to see a T-REX ;)

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

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
