This is an outstanding museum, probably one of the best in the world. It was very educational and very enjoyable.

If youre really intrested in animals and stuff, it is a really good place to visit. It is rather massive though, and it could take you up to 3 hs to visit everything, they have big animals, rectile and wathever you could think about

I have never seen such an impressive collection of stuffed animals, minerals, skeletons, reconstructions, meteorites, and the 25,000-year-old statuette Venus of Willendorf! Add to that an huge number of posters with interesting (and sometimes challenging!) facts about our planet, and place it all inside a beautiful baroque palace with lots of murals and statues, and you begin to get an...

I wandered into this museum at a suggestion from a friend and was not disappointed. The only thing that disappointed me was my camera battery dying:( 2 stories of natural wonder! The dinosaur room can't be missed! Good for all ages!

You could describe it as an old building with a large collection of stuffed animals.But they did know how to build a jaw-dropping arxhitecture.

Definitely go if you travel with children. It is a pleasant excursion. It is also interesting for adults... it is a travel back in time through the history of natural sciences.

i spent more than 3 hours, but honestly it could be much more, but I am not enhusiast of stuffed animals. Interesting, rare minerals, skeletons of dinosaurs and Venus from wilendorff. Unfortunatelly, now they have a renovation and some halls are closed untill 2015. Bees tree was also unavaiable.
