A great and big museum with a lot of different thematic collections and nice exhibits. Take the audio guide and you will spend here some good hours. You will not feel the time as it passes by. The building itself is a great palace that it worth to be visited from the inside and the outside. The Museum of Natural... More

In this museum shivers go down your spine as you go through earth's amazing history. Numerous stones, diamonds, meteorites, gold and even a stalagmite on display. Dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals. The most amazing part for us was Lucy's skeleton and her reconstruction. Also the scale that shows the size of today's elephants to the size of the biggest mammoth was... More

The museum was giant and I recommend taking as much time out of your day that you can commit. It is a beautiful attraction. They had so many gemstones and rare minerals, as well as an impressive animal collection.

It takes aproximatelly 3-4 hours to see all. It is divided in two parts - floors. First floor offers a wide selection of rocks and... More

From minerals to Darwins theory of evolution and from butterflies to lions / dinosours... Kids will definitely love it.. (some places were a little creepy for me I must say - all those animals kept in glasses) but this did not bother the kids. The cafe is a little bit crowded on lunch time so be aware of it. Have...

We hadn't realised that the shops are closed in Vienna on Sundays and had planned a shopping day but finding ourselves there on a freezing cold Sunday we headed to the Natural History Museum (much to my partner's delight!) The building itself is gorgeous and you must look up at the ceilings. The cafe is in a fantastic setting under... More
