The fast-flying 3 hours we could spend here were only enough for us to walk through one floor - with the minerals, the meteorites, and the evolution of the species -, but what I saw in this little time convinced me that it's really as I would think of an archetypal museum. The rooms featuring the mineral collection are quite... More

We love natural history museums. This was impressive in every way. We spent almost 4 hours here and still had to hurry through some things. The building is beautiful. So why not a 5 star? When you have a tourist location in a international city like Vienna where travels come from all over the world having displays in something other... More

Went here mainly due to the good reviews on here and needed to kill some time. The price of entry was very reasonable (one of the cheapest things we did while out in Vienna) and fascinated me. The building itself was spectacular, with grand staircases and beautiful sculptures and paintings. Personally I think it gave some of the better known... More

Very nice museum with a great collection of stones, minerals and animals. Specifically the collection of birds is beautiful. The building itself is extremely nice and beautiful as well!

This is a first class natural history museum, and is probably frequently overlooked, with the plethora of other sites to visit in Vienna. The displays are very well done, with a large variety of animals to view. The highlight, especially for kids was the life-like animatronic raptor.

I thoroughly enjoyed the natural History Museum even though many of the exhibits were described mainly in German. There was a large variety of minerals jewels etc and the dinosaurs and pre historic section was very interesting . You were allowed to photograph and the magnificent building was certainly worth a snap or two. We spent two hours here and... More

There is so much to see in this museum, they've got archaeology, minerals, zoology, fossils, dinosaur models, anthropology. I was rather disappointed to find the much advertised statue of Venus to be a tiny prehistoric fertility deity statuette. However, there is just so much to see and I loved the fact that they've got a copy of the skeleton of... More
