A must see museum! The displays are just awesome! The mini replica of Noah's Ark is so well done with sound effects and even the 'ark' swaying by the waves! If you like minerals and crystals they have beautiful specimens. Lots of 'do not touch'... so maybe for older children.
Museum is located in the picturesque street of old town Erfurt, capital of Turingia. There are replication of flora and fauna of the region. Underground they have small replication of Noah Arch.
