Especially interested kids and teenagers will love it!
Jul 2020
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.

Amazing museum
Jan 2020
This a huge collection and merits nearly a day to do it justice. Luckily there is an excellent cafe because it would be impossible to do the whole thing in one go. There is masses to do for children and fascinating exhibits for all ages.

Absolutely the best attraction to visit with your kids! Unfortunately, we didn't have time to go through it in detail, but I definitely recommend it to everyone! I would only return to Salzburg so we can visit this museum again!

Absolutely loved going to this museum! You name it and it is there. The aquariums are truly beautiful with explanations of the areas they belong to. If there are no plaques with English just use a German to English translator app. All the geology and fossils are so enlightening including the part that the Salzburg Alps were once coral reefs! When you first enter through the turnstiles turn right and you will find a cloakroom which I highly recommend using otherwise you will get overly hot!

Science!!!
Dec 2019
If you like science, the natural world, or have kids (or you're an adult but actually a big kid on the inside), then this place is for you. I really enjoy science museums and this one was fantastic. Excellent exhibits on the natural world - animals (land, reptiles, sea life, dinosaurs, etc.), geology, space, medicine, and other areas of science. A small number of hands-on, interactive things. Many of the sections were focused on the natural world local to Austria, which I thought was cool as you learned about nature in the local area.

A majority of the signage is in German and English, but there are parts of the museum that are in German only. Ridiculously enough, some visitors lower their tripadvisor rating because of this... as if non-English speaking countries are supposed to have signs in English?

As other reviewers have noted, there can be small, screaming raptors (i.e. children) running around, but what do you expect from a science museum? I wouldn't knock the rating down just because of this. Perhaps visitors should manage their expectations.

There are toilets, there is a garderobe, and a cafe. Entry price is fair.
