A lot of fun. Loved the exhibits, especially the fish, taxidermy animals, and science exhibits. Really just a great little museum. Especially recommend for kids.

This museum is really impressive and holds interesting stories, exhibitions and items for every age. For instance in the science center, you can try to experience how it feels to sit in a wheel chair or to be blind. They built a small obstacle course and one has to master this course in a wheel chair or with a blind... More

Recommended for travelers with kids, or for everyone with the Salzburg Card. Can be very busy with school groups.

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!

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
