The museum is most old and tired. Really enjoyed the dinosaur bones, have a number of different full dinos and some copies. The rest of the museum is a lot of fossils and more fossils and some stuff animals. Not bad on a cold rainy day but not really worth the money.

There are so many scientific findings on display at the Senckenberg, it is... More

I guess when you grow up visiting the Natural History Museum in London, all else will come a sad second place. This place is worth a visit, and probably even more so when the new wing is finished, but it does feel old and tired. It is quite difficult to find your way around. Rooms drift into other rooms with... More

An amazing collection. You really feel and can easily image how the past was even long before humans appeared on the planet.

Very interesting place for kids. Many animals on display and have dinosaurs . Good place for kids to see animals in actual size and shape. Would be better if there is more English translation
