The museum is well organized and interesting. There are many exhibitions in the museum from different kinds of scientific areas. The place is mostly for kids - don't bother go there without them, you'll probably get bored.

This museum requires far more time than the recommended 2-3 hours. It is so interactive and interesting that it takes about two hours per level if you want to see everything it has to offer. Set entire day aside and enjoy this spacious and rich museum.

My husband, who loves technology, found this to be one of the best museums that he's seen. The main floor had antique steam trains, there was a whole room devoted to piano technology. They had a piano that played three one-string violins! Really unusual stuff. Not what you typically see in an American science museum. It was huge. Not at... More

We loved this museum. Our major issue was we had to drag our 2.5 years old out in tears because she wanted to stay more and more. She was just fascinated by the machinery and the experiments, which she did not understand for the age, but still wanted to try them all. It also has two areas for children with... More

If you or your kid are passionate about technical stuff this is the place to be in Vienna. You must allocate at least 4-6 hrs for this visit, as this exhibition is pretty comprehensive and has a lot of interactive experiments for your kid to try. The museum has a cafeteria inside where you can make a stop, rest and... More

We loved this museum. It wasn't expensive to get in and there was lots of hands-on stuff for the children. We also ate in the cafe which was good. There is a play area where children have a road system and some ride on toys and we had to drag our boys away (aged 6 and 3). There is lots... More

Unfortunately, we only had like 2h for visiting,as we arrived late. It is situated kind of close to the periphery. I recommend minimum 4-5h for this museum, as it is full of information regarding so many domains (transport, electronics, physics, astronomy etc).

This museum combines typical exhibition with education. Therefore is suitable for both adults and children. We especially loved the TV studio where you can play the role of news speaker and energy production tools on the groundfloor. Our kids liked of course playgrounds. It is possible to have only one day visit but it would be very intensive day.
