Location:

Invalidenstraße 43, 10115 Berlin

Facts:

  • Hosts the largest piece of amber in the world
  • Currently, it has Europe’s only original T-Rex skeleton

The Museum für Naturkunde is just great. The whole place is a labyrinth of wonder and magic.

The museum is divided into several exhibitions rooms, but the permanent star is the one entitled The World of Dinosaurs with the largest mounted dinosaur skeleton in the world. Not to mention the new temporary exhibition with Tristan Otto, the black boned T-Rex.

But the Naturkundemuseum is not only made of bones. For example, it also hosts The Wet Collection with 276,000 glasses filled 81,880 liters of ethanol to preserved all sorts of animals. What is also super cool to check out are the minerals (over a thousand displayed pieces from all around the world!) and the room on evolution and biodiversity. No child or adult can afford not to be amazed by these rooms. It is just super cool.
