This place is great for fun and educational at the same time. I think that my parents and I enjoyed it just as much as my 6 year old did. Live, pictures, stuffed, videos, it has a little bit of it all.

If you have any small interest in any sort of natural history or technology then make sure you come here. A large portion of the museum had English displays which were very helpful, even those which didn't were still very interesting to look at. Three stories of hands-on activities were great fun, even for adults! Definitely worth a trip there,... More

Spent the afternoon here to stay warm and out of the snow. Definitely worth it! They have an Aquarium and Reptile Zoo - my favourite part. It's an informative and fun place to go for all ages! From Minerals, to animals, to the human body, and reproduction. It's definitely a highlight of my trip to Salzburg.

I'm 37 and sill learned new things here. Good to join in and play on the machines. We only spent 2 hours here but you could have spent an entire afternoon.

At the very beginning I was not sure that everyone would enjoy the visit, so I planned the visit for 2-2.5 hrs. I was totally wrong. Everyone of us found something interesting and event the ordinary stuff you could see in other museums was presented nicely ther - For everyone - the Aquarium, and most of Science Labs - For...

This museum was really big, divided to two parts, museum of Natural History and Science Centre. I spent more than 6 hours to visit both, took my lunch in the meantime in a rush to take a look on next section. Information provided was simple yet important, shoild be understandable for kids. Unfortunately some parts does not have English translation... More

Not your typically American museum, which is what I was expecting. Incredible life-size exhibits, with English translations under the German information. The 10 euro adult ticket (I think 4.50 for kids) includes the I amazing science center that is so fun for kids, and parents. We saw so many parents sneak a turn on the equipment :) great afternoon trip!

We have traded around the world with our children. This Museum is in our top 5 favorites. It is fantastic! The best evolution exhibit I have ever seen. We loved the interactive Mozart chairs as well.
