Extremely interesting. Some of the exhibits are very old but complete extant. Even if you walk fast and look only at a small fraction of the endless exhibits it will take you 2-3 hours to complete the tour. My recommendation, plan for at least 5-6 hours and enjoy a coffee and cake at the coffee shop below the dome (don’t... More

For under 27 it costs only 5 euros. And too many objects to see it took me almost three hours only to have a rough look. Entertaining, educational and interactive.

It was good, but if you've been to the Natural History museum in London, you probably will not be that impressed. The museum is much more old fashioned with huge rooms full of stuffed animals across the world and rocks too. It was much less interactive than I hoped it would be, but the collections were impressive none the less.

Great museum, famous for the Venus of Willendorf. Not crowded and very informative. Some rooms under renovation at present but well worth visiting if you are interested in minerals , origins of life.

The building itself is worth visiting (one of the wings of the imperial residence), but if that wasn't enough, it houses an incredible collections of stones, meteors, volcanic rock and similar (amazing) and items that kids will absolutely love. From dinosaurs to an amazing display of all kinds of animals, microscopic creatures and so many other interesting things. It was... More

This NHM reminds one of the London NHM in the sense that it is located in a beautiful building, centrally and next to many other sights (e.g.the art history museum). At 10€/adult (5€/student under 27) it is quite cheap and well worth the buck. However many rooms only have German texts which makes it difficult as a visitor to become... More

Museum building is beautiful and inside well layed out and with English and German next to all the exhibitions. Plenty to see and lots to interact with too - so good for kids. I learnt a lot during my short visit here, and enjoyed the chenoble exhibition on the top floor also.

If you stay a little longer in Vienna and you are easily getting bored by watching the old paintings (Kunsthistorisches Museum) it's a place for you. A lot of exibits, large selection of precious stones and minerals and insight into the history of animal species. The bulding is also really beautiful and large, you can take a break from walking...

Have a child also obsessed with dinosaurs? Visit the Naturhistorische Museum. Very good, 2 big complete dinosaurs skelletons and much more. Go early morning when it opens, less people and more space to be astonished.

This museum is truly beautiful. The architecture, both externally and internally is stunning. In Vienna, with so many classical buildings it can blend with the masses, but if you imagined it in any other city it would be a standout. Internally the art on walls and ceilings are exhibits in their own right and give an atmosphere to the actual... More
