Berlin Museum of Natural History

“Oskar“ – the huge brachiosaurus skeleton in the entrance hall – together with other skeletons of dinosaurs such as an archaeopteryx without doubt the highlight of the Museum fuer Naturkunde (Berlin Museum of Natural History).

“Oskar“ – the huge brachiosaurus skeleton in the entrance hall – together with other skeletons of dinosaurs such as an archaeopteryx without doubt the highlight of the Museum fuer Naturkunde (Berlin Museum of Natural History).

Since it’s re-opening in July 2007 more modern and interactive displays have entered the museum. During a phase of modernization the dinosaur skeletons where shipped to Canada to let them clean and restore.

Nevertheless, the Museum fuer Naturkunde has kept its charm of an old-fashioned and kind of creepy museum I remember from my first visits as a little child. Preserved animals in glasses or display cases, the old architecture, and dim lights help to cause these feelings.

The best way to get there by public transport is to use the subway U6 (direction to Alt-Tegel) and to get off at the station “Zinnowitzer Strasse”.
