So much to see here. You have to select. I chose rocks and ammonites but passed by many other exhibits. The 30,000 year old Venus - tiny statue worth a look. Nice coffee bar.

This museum is directly across from Kunsthistorisches art museum so many people try to see both if time permits. This is a very typical Natural History museum with displays of animals, gems, and other natural sciences. My favorite is usually the parts about human evolution,...More

I could have absolutely spent HOURS in this place! There is so much to see, and so much you can learn. They have really good audio guides in addition to everything that is written next to the exhibits themselves. The exhibits themselves are so diverse!...More

The inside of this building is worth visiting in its own rights. We found the exhibits displayed in mainly glass cases rather old fashioned and not interactive.

We loved this place. It’s very similar to the museum in Chicago where Sue the T-Rex is housed. Tons of kids and generally a laid back vibe here. Easy to access and no lines. Plenty of seating along the rooms if your in need of...More

This is a great museum. A bit quieter than the others and great for kids. I particularly like the interactive nature of some exhibits, including the ones they let you touch (a dinosaur bone included!)

Ignore the exhibits for a second, the building and location is breathtaking, filled with history and great architecture. May seem like a steep admission, but worth the euros taking into consideration the amount of exibits there is. Beforehand the photos I've seen seem only about...More

If you've purchased the tickets online then I don't believe there is any restriction to when you can visit other than the opening and closing time of the museum. So I would make sure that the museum is actually open on the... More
