Senckenberg Natural History Museum (Naturmuseum Senckenberg)

The Naturmuseum Senckenberg in Frankfurt is the second largest natural history museum in all of Germany. Senckenberg contains the most comprehensive exhibition of large dinosaurs in Europe. Outside, you are greeted by enormous life-size representations of dinosaurs. Inside, you can trace the tracks of a Titanosaurus towards its skeleton on a covered patio. One particularly fascinating attraction is a dinosaur fossil with its scaled skin preserved.  These dinosaur exhibits are exceptionally popular with children.

Although its dinosaurs are the major attraction, the Senckenberg Museum also has an expansive collection of animal exhibits from every era. The museum boasts the world's most expansive collection of stuffed birds, featuring over 2,000 species. Another remarkable exhibit is a cast of the famous Lucy, a skeleton of an Australopithecus afarensis, a hominid from 3.2 million years ago.

Practical Info

Come to the Senckenberg to experience natural history at its finest and marvel at impressive dinosaur skeletons, from a Tyrannosaurus rex to a  Triceratops. A recently unveiled reptile exhibit confronts both the biodiversity of reptiles and amphibians and the context of nature conservation. The museum offers evening lectures and tours if that suits your fancy.
