We spent a couple of hours inside and if we had more time we could have stayed much longer. The kids (ages 9 and 11) really enjoyed both the nature and especially the science side of the place. highly recommended for families with kids. It's included in the Salzburg land card.

This place is an absolute must, particularly if you're visiting Salzburg with children. It's compact, well organised, diverse and hugely interactive. We'd done scant research before visiting and really should have allowed more time. We didn't even realise there was an interactive science area as well as the 'natural history' bit. Both were well set out to really engage visitors... More

this a place where you can find different kind of things so you won't get bored easily for sure. you can study the planets of the solar system, the human body or the reptiles... it's easy to spend an hour at the aquariums.

Wonderful museum, plenty to keep the whole family interested and entertained. We easily spent nearly 4 hours here so give yourself some time. The cafe inside is very good for a mid point lunch or snack stop.

It´s the type of muzeum, where everyone in different age finds his/her favourite part nature. This big museum offers the rich collection of models of animals, aquariums, pictures.... you must visit it, you won´t regret.

Really great museum packed with lots of different exhibits and interactive spaces. Ajoined with the science centre it really does make for a 2-3 hr wander round. The aquarium and reptile area were nice surprises as well as the interactive human body section. We didn't expect to find everything we did considering the low entry cost (though we entered for...

Well located within walking distance of all central Salzburg attractions. This museum is as interactive as it can get. There is a science building comprising of 3 levels devoted to different scientific fields. Each section in the building backs up the theory with interactive practical examples where you see and experience science in action. The kids couldn't get enough of... More
