The Tianjin Natural History Museum is a fun outing for a low budget trip. The entrance is free but be sure to bring your passport along as they will ask for if.

When entering the museum you are welcomed by a well designed beautiful structure filled with lots of coloured and stuffed wild animals. The museum has 3 different levels that can be visited including a 4D and 3D theatre, gift shops and a small cafe.

There's lots to see and learn at the museum from insects, wild animals, ocean life all the way up to architectural and environmental history. The museum is home to some fascinating real fossils that have been perfectly preserved and are well displayed with descriptions which although in Chinese can be perfectly translated using any translation app.

On the ground level there are quite a few lifelike looking dinosaurs that even move and have sound effects, there are also some enormous very well put together skeletons. When moving to the first floor they have a very nice display on the evolution of people and the different wild animals which is very interesting. They also have a wide selection and display on ocean life from the different coral reefs that can be found right up to the blue whale and skeletons showcasing just how enormous in size these animals were.

One of the most fascinating displays in the museum is certainly all the insects. They have hundreds of butterflies and moths displayed beautifully and that showcases all the different species and colours and also their places of origin. They also have a wide range of the more scary creepy crawlies like scorpions, spiders and centipedes.

Finally they have a very impressive display of different beautiful crystals that have been well preserved and are perfectly showcased between tons of LED lights that make them even more fun to look at.

The Natural History Museum is definitely one of the places that should be visited during your stay or visit to Tianjin and be sure to take loads of photos so you can remember all the history and beautiful showcases.

I Like
Surprisingly nice museum in Tianjin. Big, takes time but worth it.
The photos all had short English texts.

I Dislike
The relics didn´t have English text so we had no idea when they were from. The museum is obvisiously only for Chinese tourists but let´s hopw they wll ad some foreign languages soon :)
