This "museum" is an excellent place for families with school kids. Highly recommended also as a birthday party treat. You and the kids will still learn from the detailed description of the themes.

Nice Museum, small but provides a lot of information and definitely interesting for older Kids. Expect to spend approx. 2 hours there. All provided information is only in German, so be prepared to translate all the time if your guests are not fluent in German

Great museum for curious kids! Been here serveral times with my kids 6 and 3 years old. Lots of interactive things to do and see and not so crowded with people! I really recommend a visit.

I liked the museum despite the fact that everything is in German only. The highlights for me were the time line of fossils and having some alive animals for display. It's not very big museum. About an hour is enough.

We visited the museum on a rainy Sunday afternoon with our children. We enjoyed it very much. We liked that it is divided onto three floors with different time lapses.
