This fascinating little museum packs a big punch in the first room you enter, as you're faced with the enormous dinosaur skeletons, beautifully presented to emphasise the sheer scale of these extinct creatures. That room by itself would be worth the admission fee, but the...More

If you ever been to London Natural History Museum - this one is similar (tad bit smaller) - but with less crowds and some creepy animals in aldehyde bottles. But we enjoyed the place :)

Worth for the price Euro 8! Photo taking allowed without charges. We spent about 3 hours in the museum, especially to the dinosaurs sections! The museum is well organized with all informative comment each section. A good exploration of nature lover!

Despite being a large building, most of it was closed. The contents of this museum were... delightful yet not very interesting for one who had listened something in the elementary school. For a price of 8,50 I don't really think it was that interesting. Children...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.
