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.

It is rather shocking as to how massive this museum is. We were here for 3 hours but could have easily doubled that time. The quality and quantity of these displays is unmatched. Huge machines, excellent descriptions, quality exhibits. Physics, medical instruments, electricity, transportation, sanitization, engineering, domestic practices, endless information taking you back in time. Plan more time than you... More

This is an excellent museum in a beautiful classic building. It's hard to see it all, but it has some of everything - music, classic cars and planes, heavy equipment, modern sanitation, the history of and advances in energy production, and everything in between. We spent a number of hours there and were engaged and interested the whole time. There... More

If you're not into technology - don't go there. If you are, it is probably one of the best places to visit. Their collection is huge, as the museum is almost 100 years old. Unless you're willing to go for two days, it is best to plan beforehand which exhibitions are the most compelling for your interests - and start,... More

A fantastic museum for all the family. There is a children's section with hands on exhibits. The museum covers transport, manufacturing and science and it would be all too easy to spend a full day in the museum if you have a scientific/technological interest. Several of the interactive demonstrations of scientific principles were innovative and fascinating e.g. Galton's Wheel and... More

It is one of the best museums I have ever been to. Usually I am not a person to go to museums very often and I do not enjoy it always either. But the Technical Museum of Vienna is different; it is very informative and everything is explained on an easy basis. I also went there as a child and... More

This is the place for you. This is the place to go to find out how things work. This museum has almost everything translated into understandable, grammatically correct English. There are hands on exhibits for all ages. It is not air conditioned so in the summer it can be a bit warm but not as hot as outside. Our family... More

We could have spent a whole day in this place. Great exhibits - very well done! We stopped there after Schönbrunn Palace (walked over there) - and didn't really have as much time as we could have spent there. But glad we got to see what we did (musical instruments, media, space, transit, mining, communications, power, etc. - everything that... More

The new space exhibition is well worth a visit. We, 2 adults and our 16 year old son, spent a lot of time in here. Great that it was so up to date. The rest of the museum is also very interesting. Lots to do to keep us all busy. We ate at the cafe which has a limited menu!... More
