In a building designed as a total work of art, the Natural History Museum Vienna preserves, expands, researches, and presents its extensive collections covering biology, earth sciences, anthropology, and archaeology. It conveys nature’s diversity, the evolution of Planet Earth and life, and the cultural development of civilization. It moreover serves as a truly inspirational meeting place for dialogue and idea exchange between the scientific community and the public.
This museum is famous for its unique objects known all over the world. One of them is the “the 29,500-year-old Venus of Willendorf, the Steller’s sea cow that became extinct over 200 years ago, and enormous dinosaur skeletons.” Other interesting artefacts include for example the world’s oldest and largest public collection of meteorites as well as the new permanent anthropological exhibition on the origins and development of humans, all of which are displayed in the 39 halls of this interesting museum. To celebrate the museum’s 125th anniversary, a new Digital Planetarium has been opened. All of this makes the Natural History Museum an important place and one of the largest non-university research centres in Austria.
This place is certainly a good way how to kill a couple of hours in Vienna and discover many interesting things. Whether you’re young or old, you will definitely find here something that will interest you. 😀 And if you love coffee and one-of-a-kind places, the café located right in the building will for sure make up for a great Instagram worthy photo.
