Drag the map and zoom in or out for the best view of the surroundings.

A nice recommendation if the weather is really too bad to find fossils. There are many fossils from Westphalia to see. Among other things to see are the real dinosaurir finds from the Sauerland. Neanderthals, insects from the Carboniferous, and much more beautiful items to be jealous about. In the permanent exhibitions skeletons (replicas) of a Tyrannosaurus, Camarasaurus, Iguanodon (from Germany!), Stegosaurus, etc. are on display. The museum is next to the zoo, so after the dead animals you can still admire the living (Allwetterzoo).
