Great Kids Museum

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

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.
