Not really much different than any other Natural History museum. Although it was a very nice museum, if you have a brief time in Vienna, there are other sites more unique.

The Museum of Nature History of Austria is one of my favorite museums in Vienna. I visit it yearly and there are always new interesting exhibitions. You can find everything connected to nature there. Dinosaur skeletons,prehistoric animals, etc. It's surely worth the visit but you at least plan a day for the museum!

A huge museum, costing €10 per adult, loads of displays, you cannot possibly see it all properly. If you are interested in minerals etc then start on the ground floor, if you like animals then the first floor is the best place to start. Not all of the exhibits have descriptions in English but many do. It was very hot... More

We have been to many Natural History Museums including the NHM in New York - one of the best in the world. The NHM in Vienna resides in a magnificient building almost identical to the Art History Museum which is right accross the yard. While it has a lot of exhibits - it feels a bit "old" and neglected. There... More

The Natural History museum of Vienna is great even for those people who Don't like museums. It has everything from minerals to animals to dinosaurs. It is huge and you can spend days and still not see everything. A HUGE must see.

This is the traditional museum concept, a huge display of different collections that include an infinite number of items. The building is big and beautiful, the visit can take a lot of time for those visitors that enjoy paying attention to the details of the expositions. Excellent place to visit with curious children too. You can also take a break... More

This is just like any other Natural History Musseum. Many dissected animals of all kinds in endless rooms. The strong parts here are the minerals collection and the collection of meteorites. This last one really impressed me.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
