The exhibits are strong and many are interactive. We learned a lot and had fun as well. The building is magnificent and the interior lends itself well to the natural science exhibits.

Everyone always passes the natural history museum, but don't. Yes there are a lot of nature stuff, which is cool, but one of the coolest features is the statue, Venus of Willendorf.

Due to badly organized ticket sales very long waiting time to buy the ticket. Vending machine out-of-order, too. Museum is very nice, but getting in has been made difficult.

One of the largest mineral and fossil exhibits I have seen. All of good quality and well displayed. Give yourself 2-3 hours at least to see it all. Well worth a visit.

Unfortunately most of the labels are in German only. You will need to pay for and use the English version of the audio guide. With a few (not many) of the artifacts there are telephones you can pick up and hear the orator in... More
