Are you looking not just for any event location, but for a very special place to hold your very special event?

The exhibition galleries at the Museum für Naturkunde provide a unique backdrop and multiple themes. Whether it is a workshop in the microscopy centre, a press conference with 20 participants, a formal dinner at the feet of the dinosaurs or a conference for 800 guests – an evening at the Museum will leave an unforgettable impression. Depending on our exhibition schedule, opening times, construction work and the Museum’s scheduled events, all public spaces can be hired for events.

Dinner at the Feet of Dinosaurs

The dinosaur hall is the heart of the Museum. Its central position within the Museum and its open-plan layout make it ideal for many formats of functions and events. It lends itself to panel discussions, formal dinners and receptions. Whatever the occasion, you will be in the presence of celebrities. The dinosaur Giraffatitan brancai stands 13.27 metres tall, watching over your guests who are enjoying the amazing atmosphere of the evening. Another exclusive addition to your party is the original Berlin specimen of primeval bird Archaeopteryx lithographica - the Mona Lisa among fossils.


  • Standing reception: up to 400 people (up to 800 if other spaces are booked at the same time)
  • Dinner: up to 180 people

Seminars, Symposiums and Conferences

The museum has an event hall located outside the exhibition area on the first floor. The event hall is also available for events during museum opening hours and is equipped with modern conference technology.


  • Seating in rows: up to 100 people
