Don't miss this hugeeee museum in Vienna!
Vienna''s museum of natural history is one of the largest museum of nature and Austria Vienna, here is one of the top ten natural history museum in the world. The museum was founded in 1807, the collection history can be traced back to maria Teresa farmhouse I husband of the queen of Buddha, natural history museum is opposite the kunsthistorisches museum Vienna symmetric twin buildings, such as palace magnificence.
I love this type of museum. The Museum of Natural History (Naturhistorisches Museum Wien) has around 20 million objects, from prehistoric times to insects, minerals, dinosaurs (there’s a whole hall dedicated to them) to extinct animals (or threatened with extinction). You have what to discover here – and this is a great place for children to learn.
Hands down one of the most awesome natural history museums ever. EVER! The design and layout of the exhibits is incredible - it's so upscale, yet so... jam packed with science. It's like walking through a palace (which it probably was) but finding it decorated with... natural history. If you're only going to have time to see one museum in Vienna, see this one. Even for their sense of humor along - seriously, I've never seen a museum be so clever and funny in their exhibits. And consider: I'm saying this as someone who studied art history.
This was the one place I absolutely had to see in Vienna and our first spot. My big motivation was to see the Venus of Willendorf in person. It was WELL worth the trip. Not only did the museum have fantastic exhibits but it is also GORGEOUS and it was clear the people running the museum have a great sense of humor.
I went to see the Venus of Willendorf, cultural icon and discussed in every art history class. They also have a collection of "stuffed" animals, including some that are now extinct. The dinosaur hall was redesigned in 2011. You may want to browse the gem hall for gift ideas.
