Being interested in astronomy I enjoyed the globe's displaying the star constellations and a few of the very old globe's, but I think unless you are really interested in globe's you may find this place a little repetitive, worth a visit as a side attraction...More

You will not see so many unique globes at one place anywhere else in the world. Not many tourists and good price so it is worth visiting.

The historical part is quite interesting. I think that the scientific and technical information is too sketchy. The interactive displays do not work well. I appreciated that all information is given both in German and English, which is not always the case in Austrian Museums.

The museum presents you in about 60 minutes an interesting exposition of historical globes, both terrestrial and celestial. It takes you back at the origins of the globes until nowadays. It is not a real must see, but certainly worthwhile if you are fascinated or...More

It should be on the website. I do not recall how much it was, but not more than a few Euro. Very good value.
