  • Both as a couple with children, the Museum is always a trip worth! The leadership for children was very exciting even for adults and well directed. Without a guide, you can spend hours there and has seen everything always!

  • A very comprehensive and exquisitely tailored museum with highly detailed and informative exhibits on the history of man and nature. The various categories include paleontology, taxidermy, anatomy, astronomy, geology, botany, and diverse dioramas among others. The largest draws however are the dinosaur exhibits. There is also a petite movie theater showing short informative videos at regular intervals. For the weary there is a rest stop with refreshments available at surprisingly cheap prices. For those willing to loosen the purse strings, there is a slightly more premium restaurant available as well. All in all this is a good destination for a whole day family outing, with a thorough tour of the entire premises lasting around six hours, and with something available for everyone.
  • Amazing. Must see when you visit Frankfurt. 2-3 hours for fast visit and many more if you want to go for deepdive. Entrance fee 6€ after 5pm.
  • Family loved this place and I did too! A must visit when here for a stay. Fascinated by the many different Elephant ancestors. A big thumbs up for the curators. Go visit you will like it.
  • This was an amazing place to visit especially being an international guest you get to see a lot of things you wouldn’t normally have the opportunity too. This museum has so much to see it takes hours to walk around the many levels . There it an enormous amount of effort and detail which has dedicated to make such a place. I would highly recommend a visit if you want a great few hours of history.
  • Reasonable price to get in, and lots to see and do. Leave at least 3 hours to see every room.
