  • Amazing display of dinosaurs from tiny tributes to T-Rex. In addition of the main attraction, there is also a floor dedicated to stuffed animals. Visitors of all ages would enjoy this museum. You can lavishly spend around 2-3 hours here. A good expo of ice age fossils, gemstones and other exhibits. Opens daily from 9am to 5pm. Ticket prices are around 12€ for adults and children under 17 can visit for 6€ with valid ID.
  • Fun for adults and children, just don't wear warm clothes because most of the museum rooms don't have air conditioning. It is probably because of the wide array of fossils and models they have so no complaints there. 😃 Dinosaurs, reptiles, apes, whales, deep sea creatures... There's a lot to see here so prepare yourself for a nature lesson and a lot of fun. Get a Frankfurt card because you get half price off. 😎 The staff was nice and friendly and the place was clean. The food and beverage options felt pricey so don't plan on eating here. Are you still reading this? Just go!
