We wandered in the museum by accident and we loved it. It's packed with interactive stuff and therefore a lot of fun, especially for kids. I think it was only partly in English, but still well worth a visit. Very cheap for Munich standards.

Nice exhibitions. I would've loved some more interactive science activities though. The stone/rock collection is really beautiful.

was there with the kids and must say that found it hard not to get absorbed myself by this wonderful museum. Lots to see, very nicely kept and has a great café inside. Would definitely recommend even if not a German speaker as there is a lot to see anyways.

In one of the wings of the Nymphenburger Schloss there is this science and nature museum. Great for kids aged 5+. Please ensure to have someone with you speaking German. After the visit go for a stroll in the castle gardens or visit the castle itself.

We didn't plan the visit, but we were at Nymphenburg Palace and we saw the museum on our way to the car. The fee was very cheap( I guess 2 EUR because it was Sunday). Unforyunately, the comments are in German, but we did recieve a map in English. If you know German, this museum is awesome, for all ages!!!... More

I live in Munich. we go here at least once a year. You visit Castle "Scloss" Nymphenburg and have Kids? After or before you finished looking at it go to the Museum Mensch und Natur. It is in a side part of the Castle, only approx 100 Meters from the main entrance. Your Child or Children should be between 5... More

This looked like a really interesting museum that would be great for kids. There were exhibits about geology, the history of the earth, evolution, and modern genetics. And they clearly went to great pains to make it a place where kids could learn things without getting bored without "dumbing down" the exhibits so much that adults wouldn't get anything out... More
