Museum for Natural History
The Museum for Natural History (Museum für Naturkunde) is the largest and most important museum of its kind in Germany. The extensive collection provides a totally new perspective on the world of nature, the earth as a planet and biological environment as well as the process of evolution. The museum was founded in 1810 and has since acquired a collection of over 20 million items. Everything about the earth is exhibited here, from minerals to meteorites. The highlight of the museum for both kids and so-called "grown-ups" is without doubt the dinosaur hall.
Although the Musuem fuer Naturkunde may not match the Natural History Museum, the Carnegeie or the Field Museum in size, it must rank in the top tier of collections. The Hall of Dinosaurs is one of a kind, and worth the entire trip. Brachiosaurus, the largest mounted fossilized skeleton in the world, is overwhelming. Most of the museum has not been updated to the same degree, but it is still a solid educational and entertaining experience. The museum is only a block from Berlin's excellent subway line. Definitely worth the trip!
The dinosaur skeletons on the ground floor of the National Museum of Natural History are sure to please the kids.
