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...

The curators at Haus der Natur have done an excellent job of combining older style exhibits with higher tech interactive displays across so many interest areas. We spent most of a day there and could have stayed longer. Not to be missed are the natural history section with its old style taxidermy including hybrid and mythical animals and the interactive...

A mixture of old fashioned stuffed animals and cutting edge displays, superb geological section and a small but fun hands-on science centre. Good for families
