Fossils & Frozen History

The Paläontologische Museum München ("Palaeontological Museum Munich") is a German national natural history museum situated in a large, extravagant building. It is associated with the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and displays a large collection of fossils of animals and plants such as Mesozoic reptiles, early elephants, and saber-tooth tigers. Be sure to check out the Archaeopteryx, an incredible find that shows the transition between terrifying dinosaur to harmless blue jays. Not interested in archaeology? The building itself used to be the urban college of arts and design, so keep your eyes to the walls and you'll still be impressed.
