“Nice place to go if you have kids!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

It is one of the museums at Museumsmeile area. Koenig Museum is the biggest natural history museum of Germany. It has 100 years old (not always dedicated only to the museum) and show different ecosystems (savannah, arid, polar, so on) and their particular animals. There are a good collection of birds and mammals. It has a vivarium too with snakes, lizards, so on. It is not a huge museum but it is the best cultural attraction to visit if you have small kids. They get delighted with so many animals. The building is amazing, stunning! If you are interested, the admission costs 5 euros (regular ticket).

“A nice place to spend a cold day in, and not only”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

The first thing that comes to mind is to think thoroughly about the time of the day you want to visit it, because many children are taken there to learn about the wildlife in a nice environment - which is an awesome thing, especially because at the end of the tour they have to fill out some sort of 'what have you learnt today' test (only in German unfortunately). So if you don't mind the kids, no worries.
At the reception they asked us whether we wanted to test out their now iPod guided tour, with QR-codes, free of charge. Awesome! We really found out stuff, by listening and/or reading the information, while viewing what was going on around us.
The Museum is big enough, you can easily spend half a day there. They also have a Bistro/Cafe on the second floor, so you don't have to worry about anything.
The entrance-fee is normal (for this region), the staff is friendly, the atmosphere is nice. A great experience, all in all!

“Good museum for small children”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

I've been here many times with my daughter (4 years old). The main displays never change but it has a special exhibit on the top floor which changes 3 or 4 times a year. It has good interactive displays for small children. Room for improvement would be to have a change in the main displays.
