This is the poorest science museum I have seen. The exhibits were poorly designed, and the quality was not up to par. Boring.

We took the kids to this museum for a visit of a few of the exhibits on a busy day of sight seeing. We stayed late and the kids asked to go back the next day. The reptiles were very cool, and the Doppler exhibit was neat.

We spent a lot of time here. The Kids LOVED IT! It is a very well done science museum. You could easily spend 6 hours at this place.

The Haus der Natur is one of the most beautifull nature museums i've been. you can stay there for many hours and not get bored even for a second. the only negative i found is that most of the explanatory texts were written in Austrian. If there was something like a pamphlet that they gave in the entrance i don't... More

This was surprisingly one of the best attractions on our trip. We traveled with both a 17-year-old boy and an eight-year-old girl, and both thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The various exhibits range from aquariums to space and the cosmos to Tibet. (note: why Tibet?). We spent the whole day there and it was welcome to get out of constant rain.

Just went in to get out of the rain and kill some time but it was a surprisingly big and interesting museum. Well worth a visit and I ran out of time in the end without seeing everything

There are some great hands on and informative exhibits, if you can deal with the masses of school children here on field trips. If you have kids with you, this is a must do for families. It was just my wife and I, but we enjoyed learning from some of the great scientific exhibits. The Human Body exhibit was especially... More
