Lonely Planet review

The curatorial concept of the Paläontologisches Museum could use a little dusting up but otherwise this archaeological trove of prehistoric skulls and bones is anything but stuffy. The most famous resident is a fossilised archaeopteryx, the creature that forms the evolutionary link between reptile and bird.

Jurassic fans can check out the wicked horns on a triceratops skull or the delicate bone structure of a plateosaurus. What better place to bring the kids when they're passing through their 'dinosaur phase'?
