Senckenberg Museum - Frankfurt

1 post in this topic


The Senckenberg Museum is Germany's largest museum of science and natural history, accommodating over 400,000 visitors in 2004. It has the largest collection of dinosaur skeletons in Europe, including a dinosaur fossil with its original scaled skin and one with clear bristles around its tail and its last meal still visible: be sure to check out the fossilised stomach contents.


You'll also have the opportunity to see Europe's only cast of "Lucy", a nearly complete skeleton of an adult Australopithicus afarensis, a species of upright hominid that lived from approximately 4 to 2.7 million years ago. Among other bizarre highlights are an actual "shrunken head" (an Aboriginal cult object), two child mummies and an American Mammoth skeleton complete with giant tusks.


The museum is open daily from 9am to 5pm, and open Wednesday til 8pm. Saturday, Sunday and bank holidays it's open 9am to 6pm. Admission is €6 for adults and €3 for children.
