Museum of Natural History

Vienna’s Museum of Natural History sits on the Maria-Theresien-Platz directly opposite the Kunsthistorisches Museum. It’s doors first swung open in 1889 and today holds over 30 million objects that will delight adults and children alike.


The museum’s collection of artefacts span out across 8,7000 square metres, so a good few hours need to be dedicated to exploring. From the dinosaur skeletons to the extinct Steller’s sea cow, there’s plenty of exciting collections to explore. There’s also a planetarium which streams educative short films including Phantom of the Universe.


Adult admission to the museum only costs €10 while children are free. If you plan to catch a digital show at the planetarium, you can buy a multi-ticket, which grants access to both museum and show, for €15 per adult and €5 per child. All tickets can be purchased online or at the museum.
