It is a good museum, with interessting informations about hunting and fishing. The entrance fee about 2,50 Euro is ok. I missed the ocean fishing, but is was still ok.

“Looks promising, but ...”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

If you are interested in history of museum education, that's the place to go :-). You will find everything from modern, really cool interactive installations to showcases with hundreds of neatly aligned fishing hooks or shotguns. The latter tend to be boring if you are not a true fan of these items.
We had a quick chat with one of the guides and they seems to have many promising plans for the future.
My tip: if you have one or two hours to spend it is a good place to go, but focus on the interactive areas.

“Excellent value for a quick pitstop”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Went to the museum with my mother (in her 40s) and my son (2) and we all enjoyed it very much! Only cost 5euros for us all to get in. Right slap bang in the middle of town so easily accessible from the S and U Bahn. They have a whole area designed for children with stuffed animals and fish and things to touch. Also very interesting display of weird masks (Nikolaus and Krampus feature heavily...) and a large selection of antlers! Nice selection of gifts in reception. Lockers to keep your coats and shopping in. Wouldn't want to spend more than about an hour there but for a couple of euros it is definitely worth it!

“Great value”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

Got in for 2.50€ (usually 3.50€ but one section closed). Woman at the desk was very helpful and good with English compared to my limited German. Was plenty in the museum and a good section for kids to touch and feel. The only thing wrong with the place was everything was only written in German. For a museum I would have expected some English and maybe even French.
Overall not bad and good to see the displays

“Interesting and different museum in great setting”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

With a few spare hours to kill, we popped in given the low price (3.50 Euros for adults, and 2.50 for students). It turned out to be 2.50 Euros for adults because one of the exhibits was inaccessible on the day. There were free lockers to keep coats and bags. Many of the displays did not have English explanations, but there was an audio guide with an English option (1.50 Euro). That being said, much of the museum is visual. Some great displays, interesting weapons, and animals skeletons. However, probably not one for animal lovers. Glad we popped in for the amazing building alone.
