Great museum (10 euro entrance) but the building it is located in is simply stunning. We went here as it was a rainy day and we thoroughly enjoyed a couple of hours strolling round and looking at everything. There were Christmas Markets outside the entrance which allowed us to enjoy a drink once we had finished walking around the museum.... More

One of the best natural history museums i have ever visited. Huge, had many things to see and the ticket is only 10 euros per adult. I would definitely recommend to visit, a must-see in Vienna.

After a week of music and art, this was a wonderful balance. This is a good old fashioned natural history museum with just the right balance of hands on activities to keep everyone happy, bundled in to the kind of architecture only to be found in Vienna. Way too many museums these days cater only for kids, making them far... More

There was a lot to see in this museum! Deffinately something for everyone! Only thing I can complain about is that most of the signs were written in German and there was no English translation anywhere. Maybe we should´ve taken the headphones?

An incredible collection housed in one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever visited. Thousands of pieces of impressive taxidermy, a whole room full of meteorites, shelves and shelves of minerals and an animatronic allosaurus.... all for €10 entry fee. The coffee shop is in the dome, so is also gorgeous, but the food was really disappointing - I'd skip... More

Museum of Natural History is located opposite the Museum of Art History on Ringstrasse (Ring Road). It is one of the world's most important museums and is home of famous and unique objects. I was most fascinated by the enormous dinosaur skeletons. A guided tour is highly recommended.

This building mirrors the Kunsthistorische museum one. They have a very very large collection of rocks/minerals for whoever likes that stuff it's a massive collection! Great amount of animals both extinct and current are covered , great dinosaur and ice age section aswell! The kids will love it! I was impressed how much they put emphasize on the evolutionary process... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
