LWL-Museum of Natural History in Münster and Planetarium

Sentruper Str. 285, 48161 Münster

+49 251 59105


Right next to Muenster’s zoo is the Museum of Natural History. They’ve been close to each other for over 100 years.

The museum makes learning history interesting. They do this through their various exhibit types. For example, they change the viewpoint. On a large-scale, they have life-size reproductions of animals, and then on the smaller-scale they’ll have dioramas that set the scene for those big animals.

Those living in the NRW will especially appreciate one of the permanent exhibits. It showcases wildlife changes in the Westfalen area for the past 15,000 years. What a time frame!

The museum also has a planetarium. Their programming includes an astronomical tour of the universe. Kids will love the screening based on the famous book “Rainbow Fish.”

The museum always has rotating special exhibitions and informational workshops for children.

Please check the website for specifics on entry fees and opening hours.
