Only the important museums a subway Station. The natural history Museum in the middle of a, and to the right. You can see a spectacular T-Rex skeleton named Tristan; polar bear-icon of Knut stands in a showcase of the tired, stuffed paw and the Zoo-attraction in the 1960s, Gorilla Bobby, in addition, is well preserved. There is an insanely intimidating collection of minerals, which seems to make but a lot of older groups of visitors very happy.

The Museum is a well-balanced mix of sensation and satisfaction, Dino-carnival for pre-school children and their parents, and the duration of the exhibition, such as the inserted critters in the "Wet collection", which come in many Museum educational Trends and go see it.

But in the future, you want to think bigger than Tristan, more spectacular: 660 million euros to invest, the Federal government and the Land Berlin in the next few years. Starting in 2024, announced that the Museum on Monday to start the renovation work. They wanted to join the great houses of the world. By 2029, it wants to quintuple the exhibition space, a new building is built, together with the Humboldt University researchers, is designed campus.

You may find something idiosyncratic mix of dusty, and full-time in accordance with quite likable: all of These stuffed creatures from Wilhelminian times, standing around there, without explanation, on the one hand, and on the other hand, actions, which you can, as a visitor to see if Dino-researchers put the Tristan-bone in a CT scanner, and see why the Lizard had dental pain.

But beyond the really good guides, and of the specific actions, a handwriting, an exhibition concept, where the Highlight (beyond Tristan's teeth Monster) is no longer missing from the Museum in sight, this round island chairs sunbathing in the planet room where you see a means of exciting movie about the solar system.

The master plan with the first concrete ideas to be presented in the coming year. Probably not a coincidence: Then Tristan goes, its skeleton is in private ownership, to a new, as-yet unspecified location. And when the Sensation goes, is more likely to be obvious that you have to think of what it's supposed to be here beyond attractions.
