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.

If you should choose only one or two museums in Vienna you should visit this one. It's great, full of interesting expositions and information for all age groups. Very nice are also shows you can visit in certain times, for example the show about electricity. The only thing that these shows you have to pay extra. The way how this... More

This place is awesome for any mildly curious child or adult - big chunky cool machines, trains, human hamster wheel, planes, steam engines, hot air balloon, turbines....it's endless. Great hands on exhibits, largely empty on a weekday, just a very cool museum about machines and science, big and small, and how it works, all housed in a giant facility within... More

This is a great museum, a great place to spnd half a day or more. Full of fascinating historical displays, related to print, metallurgy, cinema, music, ... If you have even the slightest interest in technology, this is the place to visit! I personally could easily have spent there 4 hours or more. Could spend only 2.5 hours, and this... More

This is a must see museum in Vienna! You have to allow for 3+ hours to go around the museum. From heavy industry equipment to aircraft and exciting interactive exhibits clearly there is something to draw your full attention. The best time to enjoy your visit is during school time (and hours). It is a great shame that some video... More
