We went here to escape from a day of rain and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The museum is in a converted WWII bunker, which makes the layout of the museum is vertical. There is an elevator, and it was the best approach as advised by others to take the elevator to the top and walk down... More

Your kids will get tired of the museums and palaces after a while. When that happens, take them here. To be honest even we were a bit done with museums after a while. Nice aquarium, plenty for the kids to see and do. Be aware that there are like seven floors, and climbing the stairs can get tiring. There are... More

This is probably the best place to visit in Vienna! There are few floors filled with snakes, fish (including small sharks and some rare species), lizards, birds, etc. Then, there is a small "forest" with many trees, a wooden bridge, monkeys and bats. There is also a section where you can see crocodiles. But the best thing is the top!... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the glass atrium with birds, monkeys, and even a bat nursing a baby all moving freely around us. Most aquarium and terrarium exhibits had screens alternating between German and English explanations. The 11th floor deck view is great. Some exhibits looked tired, and a few more benches would be welcome. We came when our boys were 4... More

We decided to give this place a try with it 10 month old baby. Firstly, the elevator does go to the top floor unlike what others have said, maybe it's new. Beautiful panoramic views of the city! Nice cafe on the top floor too. This aquarium is great for the entire family. Our boy loved it and do did we!... More

It seemed too small and not worth it, but this place is actually a wonderful example of requalification, And the aquarium is really nice. Wonderful view from the top! :)

The combination of the chance to have monkeys and birds freely floating around you and the great terrace view is amazing!

Its amazing what you can see. Outside of building is not so special, but when you enter its a new world. You can see from snakes ants sharks tortules butterflies iguanas. Its just wonderful. From the of the building you can see panorama of Vienna. That view is breathtaking. I just adore this museum.
