I visited this museum, because I am originally from Karlsruhe, and it comprises some of my favourite childhood memories. In the meantime it has developed into an outstanding museum, well worth the visit. Tip: Friday afternoons entry is free!

The Museum was very well organised with a clear separation of various sections. The huge aquarium inside the hall stood at the centre of attraction. We could spend hours watching aqua life. It was so big and detailed that we were only able to look...More

We are both students so the entrance was very affordable and we saw some pretty amazing things. What I liked the most were the "living" animals. Beautiful!

Nice place. There is a beautiful small park outside, that kids can play (during December it's part of the Weihnachts Market). The exhibits are impressive and very educational. Highly recommended. 👍

I'm a science nut, so I had to go in. If you're an aquarist, there's a hidden treat here - a 240,000L/63,000 gallon reef aquarium that may be worth the admission lone.

Amazing museum - especially for children on bad-weather days. I highly recommend the dinosaur exhibits, the aquarium, and the "world of insects." The animal models are very well done (African, polar, and pre-historic), it's educational (i.e. the geology section), and the aquarium is nicely presented....More
