The Paläontologische Museum München ("Palaeontological Museum Munich") is a German national natural history museum situated in 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.

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.
