We had a lot of fun in here running around to all the experiments! The location is really big and it takes some time to cover all the areas, but it is worth it. We were impressed with the old cars - they are huge!

There's something for everyone here! Really interesting and well designed. Great for kids too. The only problem is that there is so much to see, that you can't possibly see it all in one afternoon!

A great place to spend a rainy day at Vienna.. Special fun for kids - but also for grown up kids.. A lot of nice exhibition pieces showing how everyday things changed over the years, real life vehicles, physik experiments to do on your own..

Take a walk through the Industrial Revolution in a museum meant to esucate the people of Austria about technology's ability to propel man forward from his humble beginnings. Beautiful and gigantic industrial machines, locomotives, and airplanes are throughout. Interesting for adults and kids alike.

A really good technical museum for kids and anyone interested in physics or simply interesting facts about how the world works. The ground floor has a bunch of really fun interactive exercises and explanations and then the levels above contains different exhibitions which will be of varying interest to different people. Will take at least 1.5 hours if you are interested, but I got a bit bored after that from the amount of reading. Favourites were there interactive activities and the smart home section on the upper levels.

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
