This museum has also nice models!

And my personal highlight ...

The fossils from Holzmaden :) They have a huge diversity of fossils from there !

This 3-4 m big sturgeon was surely one of the best ....

And I'm gonna add a few more things here. I love going to this museum, which is a special place for me since I know a few people who work here and correspond with them regularly. One of the custodians asked me to contribute some data and photos on some Canadian and American sites I had visited for the touch screen display which they installed a few years ago. Maybe some of you will recognize the JD quarry in Gamebridge on this one.

Once a year they also open up the work areas to the public and you can stroll around, inspect the drawers and chat with the experts.

They also have one of the best amber inclusion collections in Germany.

And a really great Cenozoic department.

And watch out for this guy. He's dangerous!

In my tour of southern Germany museums, this one s one of my favorites... wait.  Who am I kidding?... they are all so cool.  But this is a great example of modern spacious well-lit museum with a great variety of great fossils.

I certainly appreciate the efforts that you have gone to and the fine pictures and commentary.  Just, you might want to add a little caution sigil before springing the T Rex breaking through the wall.  I had been eating fried chicken all day, and I might have slipped a bit. Ahem.
