I loved the aquarium and reptile house, other than that it was pretty average. Really good for kids! Wouldn't recommend for a couple or singles.

Visited this place after completing our major sightseeing in Salzburg and simply loved it. There are different levels where they have fossils, marine life, reptiles, science, human body,everything. We did not have enough time to cover everything but whatever we saw was excellent. Our salzburg card got us free entry.

It is just one of the best interactive Museums I know of. Many different exhibits which do not only explain a lot but also let you touch and experience it by yourself (or your kids). Additionally there are always some temporary special exhibits (currently whales) which are absolutely marvelous. Permanent specials about Doppler and Mozart are just "natural". Plan a... More

Been here both times to our visit to Salzburg and it was great both times. Plenty to see and will keep you busy for a few hours. If your visiting the city from abroad grab a Salzburg Card and you'll get to use all the buses and fee entry to most of the city's attractions. We saved loads of money!

We had so much fun and time flew past. The science lab is great and incredibly interesting. Put aside enough time, if you want to get the most out of this facility a short visit will not do. There are a lot of floors/areas to cover. The facility is very much child friendly.

This is an excellent attraction for school parties and families with children as there is so much to see and so much variety. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to do this museum justice, as we visited too late in the afternoon and so did not have sufficient time to look everywhere before closing time. Perhaps it is better to... More

My daughter enjoyed the mental shift that this museum gave us after seeing so many beautiful historic sites. However, the higher floors were so hot that we couldn't stay very long. I'm sure it would be a more pleasant visit in temperate weather

This place is huge! With a big variety of exhibits on multiple floors. We couldn't get around it in one day. The floor plans are broken up so they are easily navigated. I loved the animals with some amazing fish and reptiles. There also loads of the usual bones and specimens. You got a lot for the price and this... More
