The Palaeontological Museum in Germany, is a German national natural history museum located in the city of Munich, Bavaria. It is associated with the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität. It has a large collection of fossils of animals and plants such as Mesozoic reptiles, early elephants and saber-toothed cats. The paleontological and geological institute which houses the museum is formally called the Bavarian State Collection for Palaeontology and Geology, which itself is one of several institutions which make up the Bavarian Natural History Collections.
One of its highlights is the specimen of the early bird Archaeopteryx discovered in 1991. The museum is also interesting because of the architecture of its building, the former urban college of arts and crafts.
