  • Visited on a Sunday during a busy family event day. Some of the exhibits were impressive, but the place felt dated and few signs are translated to English. But it was free and let us kill some time un...  more »
  • The Museum is located in a beautiful building. Here, history is alive. Beautiful and informative exhibition. What is for everyone. The evolution of the people with the latest discovery of the 1st Europeans. Then the dinosaurs to plants and insects. Stay up to 2 hours and never a dull moment here. Also offered movies with different themes are well received. The restaurant is ok priced and the food (Fussili with porcini cream) was tasty and €9.80 not.

  • Dont really miss this location because it was really nice to see the history off the earth and it was just awesome to visit it I really enjoyed it and I recommend this tour, give it a go and you won't regret it. Also good place for your kids to visit and trust my word they'll love it. Also keep in your mind its very cheap to buy the tickets....... Visit this location and enjoy it!!!!!
  • Very nice displays. Many of the exhibits have English versions. Was not crowded but certainly appears it can get that way. I was surprised to see how many displays had “University of Texas” ties. Makes me a proud Texan to see we are spreading a little peace, love for history, and a few smiles back to our German ancestors.
