Very good
Aug 2021
Haus der Natur is a very good museum. It was bigger than we expected. We had only two hours so could not visit the whole museum. With kids, you need at least 3-4 hours to visit this place peacefully.

Excellent museum
Aug 2021
We only had a couple of hours to spend here, and we all wished we could spend here a full day. Both the nature and the science parts are excellent, with lots of interactive science exhibits, deep explanations (also in English), and many fascinating things to see.

Half of the exhibits in German

Unfortunately, almost half of the exhibits was in German and it was very hot inside. The most interesting was science part, but older side was dusty and not very interesting.

Gem at Salzburg
Aug 2021 • Family
With the expectation of just visiting to see dinosaurs we have been amazed by the size of the museum. An aquarium, reptile exhibit, insects, human body, space, ice age, and so much more. But definitely also the science lab that allows kids and “young feeling adults “ to experiment and have a great time.
Expected to stay for an hour or two, had been there for 5 hours until they had to close the doors for the day.
A gem at Salzburg.

too much and therefore a bit messy
Jul 2021
Coherence missing in this collection of collections. Is it an aquarium, museum or technical exposition> All of the above and therefore hard to stay interested in the objects on display. Some very modern others hopelessly outdated in their presentation

Especially interested kids and teenagers will love it!

Generally:
The "Haus der Natur" is a natural history and technical museum. It offers the visitor a variety of showrooms and exhibitions on the most diverse areas of animate and inanimate nature. There is, among other things, the "dinosaur hall", the "space hall", an aquarium with many show basins, many reptile tanks ... the science center, with topics on physics, such as energy, sound, acoustics, ... a lot of crystals and other stones, which are exhibited, and and and ...
A lot can be explored and learned through play, as there are a lot of offers where you can do something yourself.
It is interesting, varied and attractively designed. You can quickly spend a day in it without getting bored (especially kids and teenagers).

My personal opinion:
The topics are simply explained so that children and young people in particular can learn and experience a lot. Even for technically, physically not too verified people, this is definitely a great experience and gives a lot to marvel at.
However, the "Haus der Natur" is more adapted to children, young people, school classes and people who are not interested in science. It's more playful and less deep and challenging. People with a good basic science education will learn less new things, but they will still find it nice.

Conclusion:
Very interesting and worthwhile, especially for families with children / tennegaers, and people with a little less scientific knowledge, but who are interested in science
A great thing on a rainy day, but not only. € 8 entry is absolutely justified.

Nice although tiring
Jul 2020 • Family
Very nice experience for the whole family..
Many subjects to see and learn..from dinosaurs, animals, aquarium to universe and human body even a whole section of science lab and centre..
We spent about five hours and still didn't see all sections of it..so you have to focus on some of them or on what your interests are.. for this reason is also a bit tiring especially if you are accompanying young children but they are surprised a lot also..
In case you are tired there is a picnic place and also a nice restaurant with in and outside sitting area..also lockers are available..
I was amazed in general and kids enjoyed!

Good museum

A very nicely laid out museum: good range of exhibits and we enjoyed our time there.

A range of themes and topics. Not the biggest but still plenty to see.

I have curious knowledgeable teenagers who have been to dozens of museum around the world. This was the very best we have ever visited. Hours of entertainment, in fact far too much to do in one day. Interactive, hands on, diverse. Brilliant.
