Haus Der Natur - Review

Take your kids to the Haus der Natur, filled with reptiles, fish and other great attractions. Founded in 1924, it is a museum of local natural history and is home to a large variety of exhibitions about different aspects of the nature in Salzburg. An aquarium, a reptile zoo and a Science Center are included. Their objective is to inspire visitors, to stimulate interest in the environment and enhance understanding about the different processes in nature. It plays a key role in documenting all that is natural in the city. There are numerous exhibits, with a few of them being very famous all across the country.

The museum is divided into numerous exhibits, the most popular being for prehistoric times and dinosaurs. Dinosaurs and other animals of that age are on display, as precious fossils, plaster copies of high quality or life sized, animatronic replicas. They are set against a background of large mural paintings and diagrams. The Geology and Ice Age department displays fossils, particularly from Salzburg. There’s a time wheel which illustrates the development of the different continents of the world, along with animated models of volcanoes and earthquakes! Their collection of animal exhibits documents animals around the world, as well as focuses on Europe. They focus on peculiar animals such as the platypus and their ethnological collection shows the lives of native people from across the world, from South America to the dying out Bush man people.

There are impressive dioramas in the museum, created by the pioneer of diorama construction himself Wolfgang Grassberger. Using the help of mirrors, these exhibits create an optical illusion of wide open spaces.  There is also an exhibit dedicated to the local water bodies and another one that showcases crystals found across Salzburg such as salt, gold, arsenic and tungsten. The main attraction is a collection of giant rock crystals along with a treasure chamber of a gemstones and gold.

The most popular exhibits amongst children are the reptiles and fish aquariums. The aquarium houses sea horses, trouts and loads more. There’s a huge tank right at the center, with a mysterious paper thin, fish gliding through the water.

Haus Der Natur, Salzburg Reviews

  • Amazing. We need to come back and spend an entire day here! Interactive and interesting. Love it! The price is reasonable. The gift shop is pricey, but there are a variety of items to check out.

  • There are many very interesting and colorful exhibitions with a lot of visitors. The younger ones move with high speed and arrive from any direction so take care :-) With slow pace it lasts many hours to check everything. The only problem is the limited airflow in the whole building. Fortunately we found an open door at the 2nd floor and we could rest at a shady, outdoor balcony.

  • Very extensive museum about nature and science. The museum has lots if aquariums with lots of species. There are also terrariums with snakes and lizards. There is an extensive collection of stones and minerals. There is an exhibit about prehistoric live with dinosaur puppets and fossils. There is an exhibit about the universe and there is an extensive physics exhibit about all kinds of everyday physics applications like powerplants, solar panels, etc. These physics exhibits are interactive so lots of fun for your kids. A must see when in Salzburg but make sure you have time enough to see everything. You can't see everything in an hour.

  • Fascinating stuff - aquarium is very interesting, and there are a large variety of animals of display. Other interesting sections include those on astronomy, geology, human physiology and much more. Could easily spend 3hrs here without getting bored.

  • Very interesting museum for the whole family, many things to do and to discover. If you drive down the Neutorstrasse then you can park in an underground parking very close to the museum. Abolutely one of the must see places when you are in Salzburg, even despite the fact that on hot days the museum also gets VERY warm inside...
