1. THE GUIDE CALLED "KLAUS"
I REALLY enjoyed the guidance from Klaus who is a medical student at the University of Vienna. I find that he provided insightful, interesting and very detailed information on the current exhibit (The history of the medical university...More
I am interested in the history of medicine and anatomy. This museum is a must-see for those with similar interests! I did the English-speaking tour at 11 on a Saturday, our guide was a very knowledgeable and friendly medical student with almost perfect English.
The history of the hospital during the nazi occupation was interesting and upsetting. The wax works were absolutely stunning. The detail of the exhibits was amazing and they were so comprehensive it is a shame that more of them are not displayed
Have you seen Body Worlds? This is similar to that.
I do like all things anatomy and oddities pertaining to humans and their insides, but this was a bit of a disappointing experience for me. There are lots of things on display here, in neat...More
You will particularly enjoy this visit if you are interested in two things: 1. Anatomy 2. Kaiser Josef II. As scientific tools, the waxworks must have been state of the art for their day, and are still deeply impressive. Indeed, as artworks alone, they are...More

This is a fascinating small museum. If you are interested in the history of medicine or anatomical models it is well worth the trip and modest entry fee. The English exhibition catalogue that comes with the entry fee is of very high quality.
We arranged to visit on Saturday morning last at 11.00am and took the guided tour in English. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the history of the institution. We are so pleased we booked the tour which took 1 hour.
An incredible collection of anatomical wax models commissioned by kaiser Josef II, the reformist emperor of the holy Roman empire in eighteenth century. The models are built in Florence with incredible details and quality. a must see for lovers of medical history. unfortunately it's not...More
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighbourhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighbourhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small
independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
you can also visit the collection of the wax models during our opening time, actually there are two rooms accessible. The Venus is part of the exhibition which is opened on Wednesday, 4:00 pm - 8:00pm; Friday and... More
