My boyfriend and I went because he loves technology. The building is open and spacious, and is well kept. We paid in euros,but I believe card is accepted too. There are different floors with a variety of exhibits, and the majority are in english and german. The only exception was videos, which a few were only in german. We enjoyed... More

My friend and her boyfriend took me to the museum because she remembered it being so awesome and interactive. I think that we were all disappointed. The few interactive parts were boring and some seemed broken or didn't make much sense. There is a lot in the museum and it was kind of overwhelming. As a musician, I did enjoy... More

The whole family loved it and we all found something to fascinate us. Amazing foyer. Near Schonbrunn.

This museum has "interactive" as a main part of it's advertising. It is absolutely not. It's a traditional "look, don't touch" type museum with a few bits and pieces added on as an afterthought to get parents and kids in. Compared to, for example, MOSI in Manchester, it was terribly disappointing.

The museum is well organized and interesting. There are many exhibitions in the museum from different kinds of scientific areas. The place is mostly for kids - don't bother go there without them, you'll probably get bored.

This museum requires far more time than the recommended 2-3 hours. It is so interactive and interesting that it takes about two hours per level if you want to see everything it has to offer. Set entire day aside and enjoy this spacious and rich museum.

My husband, who loves technology, found this to be one of the best museums that he's seen. The main floor had antique steam trains, there was a whole room devoted to piano technology. They had a piano that played three one-string violins! Really unusual stuff. Not what you typically see in an American science museum. It was huge. Not at... More

We loved this museum. Our major issue was we had to drag our 2.5 years old out in tears because she wanted to stay more and more. She was just fascinated by the machinery and the experiments, which she did not understand for the age, but still wanted to try them all. It also has two areas for children with... More
