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

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...
