Fast facts:
The Urwelt-Museum Oberfranken is a museum that forms part of the Bavarian Natural History Collections. It is mainly focused on the past and present natural history of Upper Franconia. Numerous exhibits (such as the skeleton and model of the early aquatic reptile Nothosaurus) introduce the visitors to this subject. Superb exhibitions of rare minerals and other attractions help to understand the inanimate nature of Upper Franconia. A world-wide unparalleled highlight is a 3x3 meter model of a gold crystal which can be entered by visitors.

Interactive and instructive computer games within the exhibitions invite children (but also adults) to play with sciences.

Located in the centre of the city of Bayreuth, the Urwelt-Museum Oberfranken is famous for its numerous special exhibitions and performances, making it an exciting place to become acquainted with prehistory.
