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

The Natural History Museum in Vienna is one of my favorite museums so far. I have been there 3 times so far and every time I see something new due to the mass amount of exhibitions and the overall size of the building. If you are in Vienna you should check it out, it is totally worth it! It is... More

Very well maintained museum, jammed with amazing biological specimens. The children enjoyed the meteor strike simulations, the skeletal reconstructions of the various animals, and the cameras came out for the huge variety of crystals. There is something for everyone and the cafeteria (pricey) has a variety of things for all palates. The only downside for non-German speakers was the lack... More

Where to start? This place has everything. Rocks, crystals, extinct modern animals to dinnasorers. We spent hours here. Not expensive either

The place is huge, beautifully decorated with paintings on the ceilings and on the walls of each rooms. We spent about 3 hours there but could probably have stayed for a couple more. There are probably 30+ huge rooms containing everything from rocks, huge crystals, to animals, with huge dinosaures skeletons, ... The animatronic T-Rex is quite impressive - the... More

The interior of the building is magnificent - fabulous staircase with frescos and statues. All kinds of animals including the Mauritius Dodo are beautifully displayed. Allow minimum of 2 hours to enjoy the exhibits.
