Haus der Natur Reviews
Počítejte ze vám návštěva zabere hodně času !!! Určitě doporučuji vidět je to nádherné . Dopoledne byly velké fronty u vstupu ale byli jsme v době kdy venku hodně pršelo, takže možná v jiných dnech to... more »Expect a visit takes a lot of time!!! I definitely recommend seeing it's gorgeous. In the morning there were big queues at the entrance but we were in the time when the outdoors was raining much, so maybe on other days it will not be so terrible.
Состоит из музея и научного центра. Сам музей неплохой- много интересного для детей, а центр просто супер. Очень много интерактива. Дочери 14 лет понравилось.

The museum itself is not bad - a lot of interesting things for children, and the center is just super. A lot of interactive. My 14-year-old daughter liked it. Later were in the German Museum in Bavaria-huge, and interactive entertainment is much less.
I usually don't like "static" museums, but expositions here were very nice and science part is completely interactive - best place for kids (6-12 ages), although also our 1 year old son was amazed :-) The only negative impression was from the "restaurant". Although they offer kids meals I would rather bring own one next time
Great fun and interesting program for the whole family. The natural museum offers a variety of exhibitions and contains interactive explanations for a lot of things while the technical part of the museum houses educational games trough which different physical phenomena are explained. Great whole day and rainy day program for the whole family. Even adults can learn a thing or two.
