Vienna Museum Of Natural History, Vienna Reviews - Write a Review
Its a really huge museum and needs an entire day to visit all its rooms and floors. The tickets per adult are 10€ and u can find an audio guide at the information desk for 4€ but every part of the museum have both English and German explanation on every peace. After u bought tickets there's a room where u can put ur coats and bags or stuff and lock it to be free to enjoy the museum without excessive clothing specially this time of year. This museum can be really interesting and very educational for children. The museum has 2 main floors and a small room in third floor full of amazing stuff to visit. There's even a cafe/restaurant in second floor where u can treat yourself with some coffee or something. And on the outside there's a Christmas bazaar that offer coffee, snacks and lots of stuff to buy.
Excellent museum. Fun for the entire family! We have a year pass and visit frequently during the winter months. The taxidermy, fossil and gemstone collections are extensive and beautifully preserved and displayed. The museum staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
The building is a museum of itself, so beautiful. The museum was really nice, elaborated and fun. Also very accessible for kids, with a lot of interactive learning things. We were there early on Sunday, was nice and quit, from around 11-12 you have to be aware of all the children.
It's one of the best museum I have ever visited. The collection is unbelievable and in a large scale of variation. There's also a lot of interactive displays. Not only about collection...the architecture of the museum itself was also awesome.
This institution is an old school natural history museum with an impressive collection on view. A notable item on display is a Venus figurine of Upper Paleolithic age from the Willendorf site in Austria. It is 11 cm tall and made from limestone. The figurine was covered with red ochre and buried ca. 25,000 years old. The museum also has meteorites (a fabulous world-class collection), minerals, fossils, and stuffed animals of all kinds. In addition there are Egyptian, Roman, and Greek archaeological materials on display.
