Beside many wonderful exponents, the most amazing one is Venus von Willendorf. This small statue, done somewhere 24.000 BC is in Unesco World heritage list. The rock collection is also truly amazing.

Amazing collection of stones, plants, animals, science equipment and more. Take a lot of time! With young kids it can quickly get very demanding.
