  • Came here with my class of 20. They are all migrant kids who speak German as a second language, and many of them have behavioural difficulties - they are not always the easiest group to handle. Our tour guide, Stefan, did an excellent job. He kept them constantly engaged, and they learned a lot. The activities we did together were entertaining and we all really enjoyed our day. The tour was extremely well organized and perfect for their age group (10-13). Thank you for the lovely afternoon!

  • Fast jedes Jahr besuche ich das Naturkundemuseum zur Museumsnacht. Ist zwar immer wieder das gleiche, aber die Tiere und auch der historische Bezug zur Stadt Chemnitz sind sehr schön dargestellt. Vorallem für Kinder ist es ein Erlebnis wegen des regelmäßig ausbrechenden Vulkans.

  • Eine wunderschöne Ausstellung. Unser kleinkind war auch begeistert.

  • Ein ganz tolles Museum, vor allem auch mit kleinen Kindern geeignet, da es nicht zu gross ist.

  • Sehr schöne Ausstellung auch die die sonderaustellung vor allem für Kinder. Aber leider nix für einen ganzen Tag und der Vulkanausbruch ist leider zu selten.
