Whilst this is a great museum and set up well, with clear maps and interesting and informative displays, please note nothing is in English. They don't even have an English map! Whilst my German is OK, it was rather difficult to decipher the detailed scientific...More

Large collection of dinosaurs, fossils and information about solar systems and the earth and its geology. More suitable for children but a grown up who is interested will like it. 10€ entrance is extreme though, but it has 5€ as a student.

Fabulous Day out for the kids!!! I highly recommend it for all ages. You must bring a lot of time as there is so much to see or spend another day. Best to park at Rewe shopping

Good place to keep kids occupied for some time but unless you know a lot or read German you might get short when your kids ask what is that or why something. Not so much interaction stuff a lot of static stuff as fossils, bones...More

Hi, to 99% i think to remember that we used the credit card because like to save the cash for dining or whatever else. But you can call them too or have the hotel find out for you. To be 100% sure. 👩
