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

The museum is quite large, and has a lot of interesting exhibitions, but unfortunately it pales in comparison to the one in Berlin. But it is definitely worth a visit. The exhibits are very varied, from transportation, electricity, sanitization, to medical instruments and various household applicances (and, of course, a small but very nice space exploration area). Lots of interactive... More

I visited this amazing place on January 2nd. The whole idea and the whole setup for the museum is great. The building is impressive and the things to see are endless. Even for young kids (3-6) there are a lot of things to do. The only bad thing was the extremely impolite people (specifically one waitress) in the café. Not... More

It is very fascinating. It is hosted by an quite old building, near Schonbrunn but it is a very interactive museum with uncountable hands on exhibits. There is also a medical section, with medical devices and medical training, eye and face recognition, level of sound measurement but also classical technical exhibits. There are presented the technical principles and history for... More

This museum is definitely for the curious ones among us. I've been there three times during the past 7 years and every time the fascination level was quite high. The impressive collection of exhibits, some of them interactive, the number of experiments that you can conduct within the museum (addressed more to children than to grown-ups) and the temporary exhibitions...
