A bit disappointing for my Mech Engineer student son who was hoping for more sophisticated exhibits. We also found that many of the hands on exhibits weren't working. The is great for younger kids or those 16 & under ... lots of basic technology principles being demonstrated, so very educational for kids. Plan for a minimum in if a half... More

Even if you are a child or an adult ot os worth it. If you are overwhelmed of museum art and you are not interested in art museum this is the place for you. It is vast and complex and it is close of Schonbrunn Palace.

Easy to reach on the tram which goes out to Schönbrunn Palace, the 58, just the 1 stop before. Huge collection of technology, with plenty of interactive displays, large collection (!) of railway engines and carriages. At least one full day is required to see it all. Space exploration included of course.

For this visit I bought the tickets online. We spent about 6 hours inside this fascinating museum. English descriptions are available. Hands-on experiments are awesome. I think kinds enjoy it very much. Also, I have seen there is wheelchair access.

You will need at least half a day to visit this excellent museum. It has recently been refurbished and has loads of stuff you can try for yourself. Especially great for kids!

You can get to the Museum by going west on U1 and getting off at Schoenbrunn station and walking through a small park. The museum is extensive and even though we spent 5 hours there we didn't see everything. Lots of hands on exhibits, plenty of explanations in English and it was interesting to see how technology developed in Europe.... More

I have been to a few Museums in Vienna and the Technisches (Technical) Museum is one of them, I should say a really good one. You feel like a child again at this Museum. It is not boring at all, as some of the museum can be sometimes. If you have kids, best place to take them to. Certainly recommended.... More

Visited with family in August 2014. My 14-year-old son was enthralled and fascinated for hours and thought that he would be happy spending several days there seeing all of the exhibits. For those with interests in physics and machines, it's just a delight. Definitely go with kids, particularly on a rainy day! Nice cafe as well.
