Surprisingly interesting and thorough museum, all for a relatively inexpensive price. I spent a lot more time here than I originally planned and enjoyed myself much more. I imagine it would be great for kids, as well.

The museum is cheap so don't hesitate to go. It is small but very interesting, with many stuffed specimens, although some are old and need refurbishing! The whale skeletons are beautiful but my favorite part was the black room where they have deep-sea creatures in glass cases, very cool.
The building in itself has very nice architecture. Don't forget a trip to the WC if you want to see a Komodo dragon!

The museum is fairly small and in an architecturally significant building that somehow survived the war. In the main gallery it has a couple of whale skeletons including a blue whale. The exhibits explore the deep German history of naturalists. The explanations are primarily in German, but the point of a museum is to look at things, and not spend too much time reading. The highlight is a new exhibit, "The Future Ocean" that has some wonderful displays of marine organisms, as well as exhibits on sea-level rise and ocean acidification. I thought it was definitely worth the 5 Euro, and about an hour of exploration.
