This place has everything... it's a museum, a zoo and a science center all in one. Highly recommended, this can save the rainy day and it's worth visiting on sunny days, too.

We came here with our 6 year old, looking for something to keep him occupied for an afternoon. The exhibitions are excellent (with plenty of English available) and many are interactive. Overall this was a delightful surprise and rivalled most of the museums I've visited over the years

Almost in middle of Salzburg (part old-town) there´s a new renovatet museum, calles "house of nature". Its very interesting to get much information about nature, animals, sorted on more levels. Its same interesting for kids and for adults. In the building there´s included a nice cafe for a brake. Parking is ideal in the mountain garage just a few steps... More

Kids and adults can have a great time in this museum. There are a lot of exhibits to drag your interest and spend a pleasant time. I particularly liked the aquarium and the Science Center!

We stopped in the Haus der Natur for just one hour before closing time with our 2 and 4 year old. They enjoyed the exhibits and we easily could have spent another few hours there. We wish we had started in the Science Lab portion of the museum because there were many hands on activities for the kids.

We went here because the Salzburg Card gave us free entry. We were highly impressed with this attraction. It was highly informative and interactive. Make sure you leave yourself at least 3 to 4 hours to take in all that this place has to offer.

Went in here expecting to spend an hour or so there, came out over 3 hours later! Has 4 floors and contains a wide variety of interesting exhibits, including a large aquarium section, a reptile house, various science exhibitions and a ton of other stuff. Entrance is free with the excellent Salzburg card, so no excuse for not visiting especially... More

This museum is on several floors spread across a large area. Great exhibits and fun things for kids and adult to do. Very reasonably priced, easy to find and great fun.
