This Museum is really worth visiting for everyone young and old. They do a great job in explaining nature and history in an informative and visual way, not boring at all. We saw a group of children celebrating birthday there, such a great idea! I agree that not everything was explained in English, but what to expect other than German in Germany? Furthermore the entrance fee was very acceptable in comparison to other museum's fees in Frankfurt.

I was disappointed to see that very few of the exhibits had English subtitles so I spent a lot of time with NY translator and inventing the info. A nice looking museum with a lot to see. I spent 2 hours there but, if I spoke German, could have spent a couple more!

Great museum with very good mix of exhibits for kids and adults.
Major drawbacks are : information is mostly in German language and there is bad organization of queue inside of the museum. Otherwise, everything is excellent.

I love this museum in a way. You definitely have to go there to see dinosaurs skeletons and get in a whale. Their collection of rocks is really impressive as well. But it's when you will go to first floor where it all gets scary and not nice - they have tens of thousands of stuffed animals there, some of them already extinct (no wonder when Frankfurts museum killed at least two to show them off). I survived only about half of first room, then I run away.

There are a lot of interesting things to see and learn, but all the information are only in German lenguage and not understandable by all the people. It's a pity because you miss a lot of knowledge and the importance of the fossils and all the other installations.

Anyway i suggest ot everybody to visit it especially with children.
