LWL-Museum für Naturkunde

Close to the Aasee and the Allwetterzoo of Münster in Westfalen, Germany you can find a nice natural history museum – the LWL-Museum für Naturkunde. From the outside it looks a bit old-fashioned but inside it is a modern museum with changing exhibitions and a planetarium. On rainy days it gets a bit too crowded but that is typical for a museum like this that is of interest for all ages.

When I was there I could learn about dinosaurs, the human brain and the local species of the region. There is also a coffee bar and lockers and toilets are available. In comparision to other natural history museums this one isn’t that big and you can pass the exhibitions pretty fast. Book the planetarium to extend your stay!

If it is your first time in this region you might wonder about the LWL in the name of the museum – it refers to the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe, a regional organisation that runs museums and provides social services.
