Things to see and do


Come and meet Bèr, Carlo, Kristine and Lars – proper Dutch dinosaurs. The Mosasaurs were excavated right here from under Sint Pietersberg and are more than 66 million years old. We have a continuing excavation being carried out in our Sciencelab. Come and learn all about the Mosasaur and watch our palaeontologists at work.

Permanent exhibitions

The beauty and wealth of Limburg’s wildlife is permanently on display in the Natural History Museum of Maastricht. NHMM will teach you everything about the influence of humans on the local landscape, plants and animals in the last 250,000 years.

Discover the insect room, have a peek at some animal mummies, check your bird call expertise and roam about our museum garden that dates back to 1913.
