The Zenkenberg Museum of Natural History is located in the suburbs of Frankfurt am Main, not far from Goethe University. Currently, this complex is one of the largest educational and research institutions of this level, offering a unique exposition dedicated to the development of flora and fauna on Earth. Every year, about 500,000 people come to the halls of the Zenkenberg Museum of Natural History for excursions – the natural history collection of this complex is considered one of the best in the world and the most complete in Germany.
The Zenkenberg Museum exhibits fossils of the Eocene geological era discovered in the Messel quarry – the prints on the stones show the outlines of prehistoric animals and insects that have long disappeared from the Earth, as well as some unique plants.
Separate exhibition halls showcase the insect collection, which includes several thousand exhibits preserved for posterity, and 2000 stuffed birds collected from around the world.
One of the huge halls of the Zenkenberg Museum of Natural History is occupied by Europe’s largest collection of beast-eating dinosaurs, one of which, the Triceratops, is featured on the coat of arms of this unique institution.
The children continued their acquaintance with nature by visiting the amazing Frankfurt Zoo. It covers an area of about 13 hectares and is one of the largest zoos in Europe.
We are delighted!
