For a large dose of quirky fun for the family (especially Peppa Pig fans), head to the Schweinemuseum, which has an unbeatable collection of 45,000 objects, paintings, trinkets, photographs, cartoons, piggy banks, and more—and all pig-related! Along with lots of giggles, the museum promises fascinating information about pig-based rituals, boar hunting and pig worship across different cultures. The pig theme continues to the beer garden of the museum, which offers delicious pork dishes.

2. Mercedes-Benz Museum


The glitzy Mercedes-Benz Museum would wow anyone interested in automobiles. As an added bonus, they have superb activities specially designed for children. In the Fascination of Technology area, children are encouraged to conceptualize and sketch their dream car and see it gradually take the shape of reality with the help of experts at the museum. It also has awesome packages for celebrating a child’s birthday, complete with guided tours and the chance to disassemble an engine! Children up to 14 years of age visit the museum for free, and children up to 7 years of age get a free meal at the museum restaurant.

3. State Museum of Natural History


If your kids are dinosaur fans, as so many children are, head to the State Museum of Natural History, which displays a whopping 11 million scientific objects, including over four million fossils of plants and creatures. The prosauropod dinosaur Plateosaurus, ichthyosaurs, pliosaurs, plesiosaurs, sharks, and much more are sure to have the imagination of children running wild.
