The Natural History Museum in Vienna is really worth to spend some hours and visit it. It is so interesting. Also the building of this museum is really great. The impressive staircase and the various ceiling paintings will delight every visitor.

This museum has many interesting exhibits. The rooms are very large with row upon row of interesting things. It goes through minerals, fossils, dinosaurs, underwater creatures, birds and animals. There is a coffee shop for when your feet ache from walking around so much.
