A wonderful alternative for animal lovers who are not enthusiastic about Hagenbeck's zoo when the weather is bad: The Zoological Museum of the University of Hamburg presents preparations of birds, insects, hooves and other animals on 2000 square metres. Many school classes and painting courses have already been guests here, but the Zoological Museum is also an exciting destination for families. The museum's highlights include the former NDR walrus "Antje", a bidentate narwhal, various skeletons and models of other whale species and an Amur leopard. There are also specimens of all Central European bird species, rhinos, okapis, polar bears and brown bears. Those who would like to be informed by the experts should visit one of the Sunday family tours. Best of all, admission to the exhibition is completely free.
