If you can only visit on museum in Vienna pick this one. I am not really into the normal museum stuff but this one is different with some great exhibits. I won't spoil it for you but you will be saying" how did they get that in here" on more than one occasion. Great place for kids with loads of... More

Ever been to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia? This is nearly the same, with the most wonderful, interactive exhibits and rooms packed with artifacts from the entire, 1000-year history of the Austrian empire. Primarily focused on the history of middle Europe, you can find every history that you can think of - mining, railroads, technical advances, space, vacuum cleaners, outdoor... More

This is a great museum to visit and there is so much to see. They also have interactive activities that kids (and adults) will enjoy. All info is written in German and English. You will surely need few hours here.

You find here many technical items that are very well displayed. And between them interactive activities mostly via screens. It offers a good place for families with tenagers to visit as a variation to the palaces and churches

This is the second time we have been here over the years and the one lesson we have learnt is don't go during the school holidays if possible. It is a bit chaotic and given there are many interactive parts it can be difficult using them. We have found in Vienna no one ever lines up and pushing in is... More

Another unexpected treasure off of the beaten path! With everything from full trains and carriages, to a satellite and old mobile phones and games consoles, this was an interesting learning experience as well as a wander down memory lane (feeling rather old just typing that!)

The Technisches Museum is a real gem in Vienna. It has so many different interactive exhibits and covers so many different eras and types of technology. I spent a couple of hours exploring the different floors, taking photos, and interacting with the exhibits. My favorite thing was a Rube Goldberg-type machine on the lower level.

Wow - we loved this museum. There are so many various types of things to see here. There are motors, and instruments, cars and planes, there are old manual typewriters, and all types of old household appliances. There are also interactive displays that are fun for both kids and adults. This place has a ton to offer and everybody will... More
