“A non-German speaker's viewpoint.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Overall I thought the quality of the exhibits was excellent, the staff were extremely helpful and chatty. Unfortunately due to the lack information in English, the significance of many of the displays was lost.

“Good especially for nature lovers and kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

It has really amazing collection of all kind of animals. Even those species that don't live any more. Great place for teaching biology. Although, if you have only a couple of days, maybe opt for something else...

“Super duper dinosaurs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We go here almost every month. My son can't get enough of the dinosaurs and the awesome animal exhibits. There's a little guide for older children available, and you should relax during your visit at the cafe upstairs for some homemade cake and nice snacks.

“Not enough time in the day to see it all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

It was amazing. The collection is just vast, it is hard to take it all it in. We did notice something in comparison to the museum in Syndey, is the taxidermy of the animals is different. The animals all have more stern faces and threatening poses. It was a little scary, but very very cool.
