Holiday atmosphere at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. This year we are offering a wide range of bilingual activities - for young and old explorers alike. We look forward to seeing you!

Dinosaur excrement, ammonites, minerals - these are just some of the objects that can be microscoped at an activity stand in the exhibitions. Younger children can also take part in the "Look closely" search game.

Open museum studio in the microscopy centre
Colourful butterflies, impressive bird wings, the cast of a dinosaur jaw, ancient fossils - in the open museum studio the objects are not behind glass but on the hand, in front of the nose and under the microscope.
The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin invites you to discover interesting, mysterious, beautiful and surprising museum objects with your hands, to explore them under the microscope and finally to sharpen your own eye by drawing with a pencil. See the world with different eyes!
