The museum is housed in an impressive building which faces its twin, the art museum, across a splendid park. The museum is well laid out and the exhibits range from geology, through to astronomy. The collection of animals is impressive and covers all the major groups, mammals, fish, birds and insects. There is even a display of dinosaurs whose remains were discovered in Austria. A great resource for Vienna and, as it is the city of coffee and cake, a nice cafe at the top of the central staircase.

There are so many good museums in Vienna. I was grateful to have chosen this one. The entry way and majestic stairways with enormous murals are visually stunning, I doubt any of my photos do them justice. I tried to wander most of the museum, but it was really my first area, the Egyptian collection that stuck with me. It was enormous with lots of antiquities in beautiful condition. As you may have read, they also have a lovely restaurant on an upper level “under the dome”. The restaurant was very busy even in the mid afternoon and I waited in a small line for service, but it was a great break.

This is mainly fossils, rocks and taxidermied animals. The one in London is a lot better. There really isn't a large variety in there. It is worth going for small children. If you have already been to a Natural History Museum before there isn't anything new here.

The Natural Hisyory Museum in Vienna is a great place to spend a few hours. It is a lit bigger than expected and covers a few floors. There is a great collection of minerals, meteorites, animals etc. The building itself is beautiful and there is a cafe at the top of the building. Well worth a visit.

In this museum EVERY sort of animals, minerals, stones, insects,... can be easily found. Huge number of specious are gathered together to make an impressive exhibition. The building itself is also a marvelous historical palace in where lots of paintings and sculptures exist. the most interesting part for kids is the show of dinosaurs which is particularly amazing.
