The Museum of Natural History in Berlin is locally known as Museum für Naturkunde.
At the Museum, you immerse yourself into the natural world, follow the development of life, and discover how different forms of life evolve.
This journey of discovery starts with Alexander von Humboldt and Charles Darwin and ends with modern-day explorers of life on Earth.

What to expect at Natural History Museum
The Dinosaur Hall, which depicts life as it would have been 150 million years ago during the Upper Jurassic period, has some of the most well-known exhibits.
One highlight is encountering the world’s largest dinosaur skeleton, a colossal 13.27-meter tall Brachiosaurus.
The valuable Archaeopteryx lithographica, the Mona Lisa of natural history, is elegantly displayed in a safety showcase in the back of the hall.
Tristan Otto, Europe’s first original Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton, which has only been on display since December 2015, is the most visible addition to the dinosaur collections.
