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

The Science + Nature museum has interesting stuff and some hands-on rooms for kids, but it's much smaller than comparable museums in larger towns. For example, previous reviewers had recommended the aquarium section. It's very pleasant but nothing compared to the Lisbon Aquarium (Oceanarium) or the Valencia Aquarium...if you have kids with you and want to entertain them for a... More

We had little time in Salzburg so we tried to go to this museum. I must admit I loved the aquarium section. Good place to have little fun, but I think kids will be really excited about it. I am glad I have visited this place but once is enough for adults I would say. But if you have a... More

We went to the Haus der Natur to let our 6 month old son look at the fish. He loved it! There are many different types of fish in the aquarium including brown trout, sea horses and loads more. We were all entranced by a large tank in the middle of one room which had very large, paper thin, blue... More

The best place to spend a couple of hours with kids who are tired of traditional museums. They liked it so much they are trying to get us to go back, in spite of an 8 hour drive to Salzburg.
