I enjoyed the diversity of different rocks, minerals and gems that were excellently presented and allowed close observation. The dinosaur exhibits were a hit with the kids. The models of the insects were fascinating.

From the moment you walk in, this museum grabs you. The augmented giant dinosaur skeletons mark an imposing entrance. Obvious standout attractions include Tristan the T-Rex and Knut the Polar Bear.

We loved this museum but left rather quicker than we had planned as it was crowded with many young children all very excioted at the dinosuars and very loud. The entrance hall is a wow, with the biggest dinos (brachiosauraus) and a diplodoccus (?) which...More

This is one of the museums in Berlin that you shouldn't miss, if you have more than 3 days in this city. It houses more than 30 million of biological and paleontological specimen. It is all divided thematically or by periods, so you are being...More

Walking in the main door, I turned to my husband and said, "Okay, this was worth it already". I was totally blown away by the dinosaur exhibit in the main hall (much more impressive that any I have ever seen before), but then... then there...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
