Basel
 
A tour of the Natural History Museum is like an expedition into the remotest corners of our planet where the most beautiful minerals originate, or into the distant past when dinosaurs ruled the earth.

Natural objects - the largest as well as the smallest - are there to be discovered, inspected and contemplated. A memorable experience. The exhibitions cover virtually all aspects of the natural sciences: from the history of the earth to indigenous minerals, from extinct to living mammals, from mammoths to insects.

Location:
The Museum of Natural History is located near the Münster Cathedral.

How to get there:
Tram 1/6/8/11 or 14, stop Schifflände, or tram 2/15, stop Kunstmuseum

Opening hours:
Tuesday - Sunday 10 am to 5 pm
