  • To cut to the chase, the museum does not have AC or wifi and quite a few of the commentary cards were only in German. On the plus side, many sections of the museum are interactive (floors 1 and 4) and...  more »
  • Were with 2 children: 8.5 and 2.5 years. The Museum is very interesting, original and interactive. All types of equipment and small and large, including satellites, locomotive, railroad cars, cars. There is a separate area for toddlers up to the age of 9, where they could come off. Before entering there you need to take your shoes off. Good buffet: tasty and not very expensive. At the entrance there is a hill, when the child moves out on it, removed the picture, together with an indication of the speed that you immediately send the mail.

  • Great place for all kind of visitors. Kids can have fun playing games and learning maths principles but also adults. I suggest to dedicate a whole day for the visit. Enjoy!!
  • An excellent museum and we visit regularly. Had a fairly unpleasant encounter at mini.mobil, a children's playground indoors. The staff seems to take the order with the toddlers way too seriously... taking a four wheeler away because of a couple nudges has crossed the line! No reason to make the 4-year old cry over that! Only a star this time
  • The best technical museum I've ever been to. (I've been to many) Also good with children, they can learn a lot
  • Every time we go there we learn something new. There are also interesting workshops.
  • Really well laid out and plenty to see. We only planned 2 hours which wasn't enough. Go during the week when it's quiet as there are quite a few interactive displays.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
