Lovely old building. Lots of artefacts, enough for us to spend a whole morning there. Loved the animal section.

The Natural History Museum in Vienna is one of my favorite museums so far. I have been there 3 times so far and every time I see something new due to the mass amount of exhibitions and the overall size of the building. If you are in Vienna you should check it out, it is totally worth it! It is on my "things to do with friends who visit Vienna" list :)

Very well maintained museum, jammed with amazing biological specimens. The children enjoyed the meteor strike simulations, the skeletal reconstructions of the various animals, and the cameras came out for the huge variety of crystals. There is something for everyone and the cafeteria (pricey) has a variety of things for all palates. The only downside for non-German speakers was the lack of enough audio guides and the very limited English signage. Still, it is well worth a visit.

Where to start? This place has everything. Rocks, crystals, extinct modern animals to dinnasorers. We spent hours here. Not expensive either

The place is huge, beautifully decorated with paintings on the ceilings and on the walls of each rooms. We spent about 3 hours there but could probably have stayed for a couple more.

There are probably 30+ huge rooms containing everything from rocks, huge crystals, to animals, with huge dinosaures skeletons, ... The animatronic T-Rex is quite impressive - the other dinosaurs skeletons are also impressive.

The place is big and even if there were lots of people you don't feel overcrowded or runover by kids.

A little annoyance is that many labels are only in German and only some have an English translations. I suppose if you want the full experience you need to fork a couple extra EUR to get an audio guide.

They have a café inside and you can have a café or an icecream or a beer (not over-priced) while resting a bit after completing the first level.
