The Naturkundemuseum at Invalidenstraße was reopened in July 2007 and is definitely worth a visit, not only because of the worlds biggest dinosaur skeleton (Brachiosaurus)
but also because of the little details – the show is very beautifully made.
From 1930 on Alfred Keller (1902-1955) built his world-famed insect models for the Berlin Naturkundemuseum.
They are amazing! Made out of very simple materials as plaster, wax, papier-mâché and celluloid. A small part of them is still to be seen in the Museum. And there is of course – the Przewalski horse (wow – what a rhyme!)
The horse grazed next to the sun and the planets…
Besides the nice animals there are also some real monsters – poor genetic mutations.
Last but not least there was this great Panther (first with my daughter Anna, than with me).
TIP: It’s a great Museum to visit with children on a rainy weekend but don’t use the wardrobe, you will wait for hours to get your jackets back and never ever try to eat in the cafeteria. It’s just horrible.
I had a great time with Anna at the Museum – the best thing to do on this rainy day. On the way back to Prenzlauer Berg we went through Gleimtunnel. All over sudden the cars in front of us stopped. There was this terrible accident right in front of us. “Just don’t look at it” I shouted, but Anna of course was too nosy… and was scared to death the rest of the day.
