Nice!

Good museum with a lot of exhibition. But unfortunately half of explanations were only in German. Good illustration though.

This museum is shockingly large and diverse. There is a wide range of exhibits, with many explained in German and English. I would recommend this museum to anyone.

Sunday morning 10 a.m. - it started already busy with lots of families, huge strollers and militant moms. When we left 2 hours later there was poor anarchy at the front gate. The funny thing to me was that this had little of interest for small children except from some bones and dead animal bodies but the real show was... More

We visited the museum on a Sunday morning. Very reasonable entrance fee and there is a museum guide in English. The exhibits are amazing, animals, models of dinosaur bones, dioramas, and a room of preserved specimens. There are quite a few hands on activities for children, some of these are also in English. There is a bistro at the museum,... More

The museum is definitely worth visiting and spending a couple of hours exploring. Although it was slightly hard to find, once we did, the building was beautiful and there was plenty to view. Although not as good as London's Natural History Museum, it was still very interesting and worth the price for a ticket.

Great museum, worth spending 2-3 hours. It has many interesting specimens of our nature history, like Lucy, dinosaurs, animal kingdom etc. You won`t regret a minute in a museum. Just opposite, some specimens will truly encourage you to explore nature. You will see animal specimens you haven`t seen anywhere. Recommended!

The Senckenburg is a nice museum and a worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours in Frankfurt. The building is old and lovely while sporting many quite modern specimens and display techniques. For English speakers, it's a mixed bag. Random exhibits have English signage and there appears to be little rhyme or reason as to which do and which... More
