The Palaeontological Museum Munich (Paläontologisches Museum München) is a museum that forms part of the Bavarian Natural History Collections. It invites you to visit plants and animals from ancient times, the world of dinosaurs, extinct elephants and sabre-toothed tigers. The highlight of the museum is the 7th specimen of the first bird Archaeopteryx from the Solnhofen limestones. The “Fossil of the Month” features extraordinary fossils from the treasury of the collections. Guided tours and special exhibitions complete the exhibitions. In addition, multimedia presentations are given on Sundays.

The museum is also worth a visit from an architectural point of view, as it is housed in a 150 year old building, the former municipal school for Applied Arts.
