I was there as a child around 20 years ago and much has changed since then. There are several floors and I particularly enhoyed the aquarium section on the ground floor. There are also reptiles, a section about the river salzach, mammals, rocks and more. We spent three hours there and ran out of time to see the science centre... More

This is a really great place! (Especially for kids) They had plenty to see and had wonderfully done exhibits/displays. The only downfall was that there weren't many translations, so almost everything is in german. However, I still had a wonderful time here!

The natural museum is connected with science centre. I can say it's the best science centre because it wrap almost everything about science. Start from the living things, it have collections of sea creature and reptilia and some mammals. I've seen some aquarium in portugal, spain, france and singapore, but here i still saw some creature that i've never seen... More

Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by the quality and amount of the displays. Good for adults and even better for children. Would recommend that you need 3 to 4 hours to see it in its entirety.

We have spent exactly four hours here and had a great time. We have two children (4 and 6) and they loved it here. So many different things to do here. They were very impressed by the reptile area with a crocodile and so many different snakes. But also the aquarium and everything in the science building was a succes.... More

We are so happy that we managed to go visit this place. We didn't expect what we saw. Collection in their aquarium, the rare stones, reptiles and the science center. The only frustration we had on this visit is that we didn't have enough time to look and check everything. This is a definite must when visiting Salzburg.

A family museum but still worth a visit once you have the Salzburg Card. It includes a natural museum, aquarium, reptile zoo and a science centre.

They're definitely trying to put everything "sciency" into it as much as they possible can and I think their actually doing a great job. I think they're mainly trying to reach children and you might want to think about the right time to visit so as to avoid visiting school classes, and parts of the house really are only interesting...
