This lovely natural history and ethnographic museum was set up in 1887. Most of the permanent exhibitions focus on Asia, Africa, Oceania, and America. The exhibits are very inventive in how they present things, and you can windup totally immersed. Apart from this though, there is also a “what makes the world go around” section, which interprets a dynamic, globalised world. It covers issues such as climate change, communication, sex & gender, time, human rights, migration and global economy through various interactive exhibits. Kids are usually enthralled by the whole place. The special exhibitions are usually very engaging.

I found the museum dissapointing. Although they had some very interesting artifacts displayed, there was not taken full advantage of them. But what I found most annoying was the randomness of the exhibitions. Nature, culture, religion, science, and economics were just thrown together without a clear binding factor. Maybe the best part of the museum was the section about African music, which featured a nice sound system. And before I forget, the toilets were clean too, and the staff behind the desk were friendly. For the price (€5 for student), the museum was decent, but not extraordinary.
Good cultural and history collection
Great museum with a Koi pond and history of all the continents.
There is plenty to see here. The museum is big and spans on 3 Floors. Plenty of things to look at and they also have special exhibitions with various themes. For instance when I visited the special exhibition was about Japan. The museum is very child friendly. Ticket prices are well within reason. There is a brilliant restaurant on the first floor right next to the museum in the same building. And generally the location is very good as the museum is next to the train station.
Appeared aimed at the German population, both through the use of German essentially throughout but as the very interesting take on history. Globe as you walk in has German territories lost in WWI, yet the rest of world appears c 1922. A very subjective take on the world let me say, and as someone already stated Very Basic. Walked out annoyed & thinking I must be a genius. Propaganda at play, good & bad, but without grasp of language hard to fully tell. Where they playing Vegans or Meat Eaters for the massive production of soy beans? Appeared vegans, when stated animals use most of it. Just confused by the lot of it. Would've loved to see in the 1930's to see the 'real German'.
