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.

This museum is great fun, and hugely educating in many fields! It looks much better in real life than in the photos! We are still remembering this place as one of the highlights of our trip to Austria. make sure to have enough time, there are many floors in the Museum.

Really a good place if you are tired of seeing Mozart in everywhere of Salzburg. Impressive collection from aquarium to other exhibition. Not only for kids, grown-ups who are interested in science or animals should visit here.

My husband and I stumbled across this museum when we took the lift down from the footpath above the city by the Modern Art Museum. We realised it was free on the Salzburg card so decided to have a look around. There is a fairly large aquarium included in the price which is nice to look around. There are also... More
