  • One of the best Museums I have ever been to, and mind you, I am a biologist, rather interested in wildlife and nature, visited with a baby and a toddler. This museum has everything to offer for every age group and interest - transport, production and mining, everyday objects, electricity, human body, computer design, high-tech lab and even two playgrounds for the smallest ones, the opportunities are endless and for two visits we still haven't seen it all and will be coming back! Loads of interactive exhibits, bilingual explanations, great fun. Highly recommend!
  • One of the best museums in Vienna. The museum features many interactive exhibits and is great for kids and adults alike. There is also a kids play area inside. Come early to avoid crowds. The museum's cafe can get busy during peak hours, so bring your own snacks just in case.
