First of all - this is generally used for school educational tours, so groups of children or teenagers are a common site. It has EVERYTHING - including a cafe at the second floor, because you can easily remain 3-4 hours in this if you want to see everything. We also attended a lightning demonstration, but being in German, we could... More

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. Getting there is easy, U4 Schönbrunn stop then walk away from the crowds through the local park to the museum. The museum is huge and covers every aspect of technology. My favourite was the hall dedicated to the physics behind the technology. The museum is so big that it can be a... More

The museum is chuck full of numerous technologic items from miniscule to overwhelmingly huge. Kids will love it and there is something for every person of every age. For me, I liked the train exhibits but there is so much more. It is a great place to go when tired of the lines and crowds in the Hofburg or Schonbrunn.

Best museum I've visited yet in Vienna. Science and technology also sit firmly at the core of Austrian culture. Transport, energy, manufacturing, telecommunications, all these areas of development are covered in thoughtful, interactive displays. In both German and English. Really great for both adults and kids. My only criticism is that while the traditional industries showed a depth of explanation... More

Yes, on a rainy day you can easily spend more than three hours here (but on a hot season it is really hot inside too). Choose you company so they too are interested of machines and technics, then you will get more out of this. Not all experiments working and I wish they had more of those. Everything (history, inventions,... More

Some great exhibits: trains, planes and automobiles! Labels in English as well as German. Some interactive exhibits, and the static exhibits well laid out.

I spent a couple of hours in this museum and though I'm generally not that interested in technical stuff, I thoroughly enjoyed the museum. There are a lot of stations where children may take part in an experiment, see how electricity is made for example. The museum covers a broad variety of topics like trains, mining, electricity, oil production, mobility... More

We were planning to spend the whole day in Schoenbrunn but had to cut it short because of the rain. Quickly searched on TA and found this museum nearby with good review so decided to pay it a visit and it turned out to be a great one. The museum is really big, several levels and all with huge amount... More

This is a really large museum, be sure to have enough time. There are many different exhibitions going on, when we visited especially exhibitions about power plants and household electronics from history to date were interesting and well-made. You can find some interactive stuff as well try out some things so it is good for children too. Everything is explained... More
