    The Museum of Natural History is located at the Maria Theresien Platz, and is housed in a very impressive building from the end of the 19th century (almost identical to the building of the Kunsthistorisches Museum).

    Like most other natural history museums, the museum in Vienna has many stones, minerals, and stuffed animals on display. Not my favourite things in museums... But there are also some interesting exhibitions; for instance the Dinosaur Hall with skeletons and models of dinosaurs, and the Anthropology Hall where you can learn about the human development from prehistoric to modern times. And the interior of the old building is very beautiful.

    Located across from the Fine Arts Museum, the Natural History Museum was built between 1871 and 1891. The museum houses one of the largest natural science collections in Europe, with sections covering mineralogy, botany, paleontology, zoology and prehistory.

    Museumsplatz: square of Museums. Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History) and Kunsthistorisches Museum (Fine Arts).
    Worth visiting without saying. I was impressed with the minerals collection in the Natural History Museum! Also, you will find dinosaurs and ancestral birds, and many other amazing things!

    This is really a must see museum. There are all kinds of animal species dating back to 750 million years. It has a large collection. The museum is itself a historical monument with a lovely restaurant inside.

    Across Maria-Theresien-Platz is the Natural History Museum. I personally liked the other museum much better, but this one also had an impressive collection including the famous Venus of Willendorf, a 24,000 year old sculpture made by humans and found in Austria. There is also a collection of dinosaurs, minerals, and extinct animals.

    Admission is charged. Hours are 9 AM - 6:30 PM on Wednesday, and 9 AM - 6 PM Thursday through Monday.

    One of the most famous and precious thing in Naturhistorisches Museum is Venus from Willendorf.

    This figure was founded in a small village called Willendorf in 1908 year. She has about 24 000 years.

    The downside of walking around at 8am is that nothing is open. While I'd still prefer the amazing facade of the MNH in London, the Viennese counterpart is also impressive.

    These 4 statues are on the roof of the Natural History Museum. I don't know who they are, they look scholarly.
