The children totally loved this place and they totally loved it. Unfortunately non-german speakers don't feel welcome-the whole information is in German and we ended up translating all the time. It was nice to see but not a place to come back.

A great collections of dinosaurs. Kids will excited. The cafe inside the museum provides hot meal at reasonable price, so you can plan a half-day trip.

Largest collection of dinosaurs in Germany with most coming from Southwestern Germany. Also has a unique Amber collection. Family admission for $6 total. Guided tour very informative. For kids a must visit

Poorly signposted.Took me a long time to find and wish I hadn't bothered.Usual collection of skeletons and stuffed animals for which they have the cheek to charge 6€.So unless you speak German don't waste your time.

This very unassuming museum has one of the best collections of Dinos and Dinos models I have ever seen. Please note that most of he information is in German only. My 6 year old twins loved it.

I enjoyed my visit .There are many things to see.I didn't like that a lot of facts about animals and info about the museum were in German.Shame! Stuttgart is full of tourists , it's a cosmopolitan city, they should have the info in English or at least a brochure in English for each room of exhibits. Anyway it's a good... More
