Interactive Museums in Vienna

“See, hear, feel, touch” – these words accurately reflect the interactive museums. By and large, Vienna is most renowned for its museums. There are so many, it is not possible to visit and explore them all in one year. Some of them are unusual at least across Europe.

Here are some details of a few of them that are well-liked by all children because of their benefits; they are especially child-friendly as well as eye-opening and enjoyable.


Technisches Museum Wien / Vienna Technical Museum

This is a great place and a great adventure for the youngest explorers as well as a chance to enjoy and try out everything including pressing, pushing, attaching, stripping cars of their several elements.

As well as the girls will not leave this place bored; there is a perfect area for them where to be actively involved indeed.

There is also an interactive play area for children aged 6.

Furthermore, some exhibitions have been changed repeatedly, therefore, there is always new ones to see.
