As we had the Salzburg card, thought of peeking into this museum (also due to rainy weather). The aquarium was big and informative. We especially enjoyed the care they take to breed rare fishes and the new-born fishes. Also, the section that were informative for us were: Christian Doppler Exhibition, Space Hall, Journey Through the Human Body.. A nice place... More

There is always something to learn at a visit to the "House of Nature". Been there with my family many times. It's always a good choice - not only for a rainy day.

Very nice place to visit with kids, its very interactive, my guys totally liked it. In spite of this, there were some rooms were my 4 .y.o kids were terrified. It would be helpful if all room had an English explanation besides the German. To conclude, its the best attraction in a rainy day.

Natural history museum are not uncommon but this one seems to be one of the better one. It was big, informative, interactive. Some exhibitions were really great. Also it seems to be the best museum among other ones around it - modern art etc. I am not a museum enthusiast. A good reason to go to this one would be... More

It's hard to believe that there exists so much to see & do in one location. This is the best kid-friendly, interactive museum we've ever visited. The animatronic dinosaurs (my first impression of the place) leave a bit to be desired but as you wander in further to the aquarium and numerous other exhibits, you're be very impressed. We especially... More

This is a great morning or afternoon or both. Many families brought their own food and so rested the children in between floors in specially organised picnic areas.

There was so much to see for so little amount of money. The aquarium was the most beautiful I have seen. Also the reptile section was cool. I also enjoyed the sience part, because it was explaing many things by experiencing/trying/playing them.

We spent almost 2 hours here to explore all the interesting items showed here about Dinosaurs, Tibet, Geosciences, Ice Ages, Africa, World of Oceans, Human Body and many other things. Good exhibitions and not boring at all.

The natural history musuem as it is simply known, is spread over 4 floors...It also houses a wonderful cafe, and a Science centre across the road (the 2 are connected at various levels, though). The acquarium on the ground floor, the Human body section on the 4th, and the acoustic section are worth a visit. They also have a giant... More

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