Natural History Museum

In the heart of Austria’s “City of Dreams”, rests a cocoon of historical artefacts, treasures, and stories, spanning the greatest ages of human discoveries. The Natural History Museum of Vienna is rightfully considered one of the most important museums in the world. Construction of this Renaissance-style building began in 1871 during the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph I. The history of this museum is as important as the collections themselves. Visitors are immersed in collections that up to 250 years old, with some gem exhibitions tracing back to the old Renaissance.

  • Gaze at incredible collections of gemstones, minerals, and meteorites, including a topaz crystal weighing over 100 kilograms, some of the largest tourmaline specimens in the world, and the 300 kilogram Knyahinya meteorite that fell on Ukraine in the late nineteenth century.
  • Visit prehistoric times with the exceptional ancient artworks and natural specimens, including the famous Palaeolithic Venus von Willendorf statue.
  • Discover the incredible remains of dinosaurs with fossils and a moving Allosaurus model.

The Natural History Museum in Vienna is located near other fine attractions like the Architekturzentrum Wien (Architectural Museum), the Kunsthalle Art Centre, and the Ethnological Museum. It is just off of the Museumsplatz Road, nestled against the Maria-TheresienPlatz, a city square. The nearest stops for buses and U-Bahn are the Volkstheatre and Museums Quartier. The U2 and the U3 are the subway lines which will take you to either of these stops. On the opposite side of Museumsplatz, to the east of the Maria-TheresianPlatz, bus-stop Burgring is serviced by 1, 2, and D Trams, as well as the 2A and 57A buses.
