Reading the English page on the museum's website, I expected a great visit in one of Europe's biggest natural history museums. As big as the expectations were, so was the disappointment: first of all- a single small window to sell tickets for thousands of visitors,...More

I think it's worth visiting anyway even though this museum could be better to my taste. First pros: central location, beautiful building, large collection, friendly stuff. Cons: lack of interaction, very outdated presentation, cries for some investment. And you can't pay with a credit card...More

I've been here with my girlfriend and we both loved the place. If you can cope with the absence of modern presentation techniques and some fancy 3D displays, you can have a good time here. The exhibition is large and covers different aspects of animal...More

This wonderful museum was founded in 1966 and a lot of the showcases obviously survived unchanged, which makes this collection doubly worth the visit. It does not only house natural history but archaeology as well. I especially enjoyed the handcrafted models and the lovingly painted...More
