I went there trying to escape the sun for a while, ended up staying four hours there! It displays a wide range of technology and science related gadgets and machines, from a simple yet effective proof of the quantum theory to a train. As well as this, different expositions take place throughout the year. You will learn not only about... More

My 12 year old son who is usually very critical about museums and rushes through exhibitions to get to the exit as quickly as possible spent hours in this place. Usually the grumpy pre-teen, he was very cheerful and even thanked me for taking him there. That's test enough that the museum is just perfect. Lots of hands-on science activites... More

The museum has a wide range of displays covering a variety of different aspects of the world of technology... Heavy industry, trains, physics, electronics, power.... And on and on. Most of the information you would require is in English in addition to German which opens up the museum to many guests such as myself visiting from overseas shores. There are... More

It seems to be very popular among school groups and the museum lets its visitor learn science and technical thing by giving the chance to experiment things. The museum was partly under renovation at 16.6. For example the transport section was cloced. Somewhere in the museum ground floor was a restaurant which cooking smells ( really bad ones) made it...

Even though some exhibitions were closed we had a great time. The museum offers a Space exhibition till 29.6.14. The exhibition shows the evaluation of the spacesuit, different types of rockets and so much more. If you have kids they will definitely enjoy operating the Mars space vehicle model. Another exhibition showed the evolution of computers, printers, cameras and so... More

We went to the technisches museum for an afternoon and had a good time. Unfortunately the transport section was closed during our visit, but there was plenty to keep us busy for the afternoon! In fact there was so much to see that we had tired feet by the end of the day... There is a good mixture of interactive... More

Can't believe been to vienna three times and had not been here. The technical museum covers most of the main areas you would expect from railways, steel manufacturing and energy. The exhibits are very well maintained and enough of a cross section and ways of presenting information to keep your interest for hours. It would have been good to have... More

a friend who lives in Vienna suggested I visit this museum with his only comment you will like it! When you are tired of looking at art when visiting Vienna, take the underground direction of Schoenbrom Palace and cross the street and stroll the park and find this huge and beautiful building that goes back to the early 1920's. Inside... More
