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...

A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in vienna with 2 children (8 and 11 years old). The children were enthusiastic about what they saw, we stayed for 3 hours and we were not bored at all. I recommend the museum to any family who wants an interesting experience in Vienna .

A bit disappointing for my Mech Engineer student son who was hoping for more sophisticated exhibits. We also found that many of the hands on exhibits weren't working. The is great for younger kids or those 16 & under ... lots of basic technology principles being demonstrated, so very educational for kids. Plan for a minimum in if a half... More
