This was a recent find after many trips to Vienna. And what a find. Displays/exhibits that keep all ages interested. Most in English as well as German. There is an actual Bessemer furnace on display, full size hydro-generating turbine. A working diesel train that 'turns on and floor vibrates with the sound'. 'Try it yourself' model how rocket propulsion works.... More

The most in-depth look into everything technical I've ever seen -- where else will you find exhibits on all manner of machines and instruments? There's really something here for everyone -- I especially enjoyed the history of appliances, toys and medical instruments. Others will enjoy the space exhibit, and still other will be fascinated by the display of large machinery.... More

This museum is a gearhead's idea of Heaven! I've never seen so many large chunks of machines in my life. We went specifically for the Coal Mine Tour as my daughter is a mineral engineer. Book online and brush up your German as the entire tour is conducted in only one language. Whether you understand German or not, you'll get... More

This is a lesser known museum of Vienna, overlooked by the Schonbrunn palace complex a few hundred yards away. This is the science and technical museum, opened by Franz Josef, so the building itself looks imperial, yet it is full of technical things, industrial history, computer developments, postal and railway engineering etc. Allow a couple of hours for full exploration,...

This is a museum you cannot get bored at! It is fun and interactive. Almost at every step, there is something to touch, move, and get involved in. It is great for kids, to learn about technics, but also for olderones seeking their inner child.

Excellent, immense breadth of exhibits and themes. I loved the musical instruments, cars and aircrafts, I'm sure my mum would love the history of domestic appliances and my dad would love the TVs and radios. Easily fills up 3 hours of you day. Just a note that I was rudely shouted out of going into a room 15 minutes before... More

This is the place to satisfy your inner geek and tech nerd. The museum is huge. It is housed in building with two 6 story buildings. So be prepared to spend a little bit more time. There are countless exhibitions in every possible technology area which ever existed. Medicine, iron working, ships, planes, helicopters, cars, electricity, electronics, cinema and photography...

We spent five hours in this museum and it wasn't enough. Every section is interesting and educational in it's own way, there are lots of activities to participate in and one easily loses track of time. One thing that we do regret is not leaving our coats in the locker, for it was too warm to walk around fully clothed.... More

Was very surprised that i had the possibility to activate several devices. Schedule several hours to visit all the museum. it really makes sense, and will balance the visits in other museums where you will see "only paintings and old furniture'

One of those museums , where you need to visit them at least once a month for education and inspiration. Recommended for children of all ages. Reachable by public media and private car - convenient parking right next to it. It is a shame though to provide such unprofessional canteen services.
