My 8 year old daughter and I really enjoyed spending a few hours in here. Beautiful building set across a park from its mirror image the Kunsthistoriche Museum. Well worth a visit.

This is an amazing museum that has thousands of exhibits so be prepared to spend some time there to see it all. There are extensive animal exhibits are which are simply wonderful. Apart from the exhibits the building itself also quite amazing.

What a museum! It is split over 2 floors and really easy to navigate your way round. The exhibitions were beautifully displayed and interesting to study. I was amazed at the number of animals that were in the museum...the room with the elephants, giraffes and elephant seal is a must see!

I really wanted to see that museum. However some places missed English translation and it was hard to understand everything. You can spend there whole day anyway. Building itself is breathtaking.

I intended to visit a nearby palace but the Natural History Museum caught my eye. Affordable entry fee and free coat check. I observed hundreds and hundreds of animals restored to their natural state. Fascinating. Lots of kids and families were there too. Plus a cafe inside. You could spend a full day here.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
