After visiting the popular museums using our museum pass, we decided to give this one a try as well, and no doubt this was the most entertaining one of the bunch! Very thought-out displays and audio-guides, different themes- dinosaur bones and fossils, astronomy and meteorites,...More

My family enjoyed the visit and everyone agreed the first room with the dinosaurs was great. Then the room with the T-rex was also a hit. The rest of the museum is impressive and it really just depends on what you like to learn about....More

I have been to some of the best natural history museums around the world but this one in particular houses some of the most beautiful and complete collections of specimens that I have ever seen.

for kids on all ages. the audio guide is unnecessary, as the exhibition itself is very interactive, interesting and informative. almost everything is in German and English alike - a rare for a berlin museum. don't miss Tristian, the t-rex.

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
