Set away from Vienna’s Museum Quarter (MuseumsQuartier), Vienna Technical Museum is still easy to reach by public transport and a short walk from the Schönbrunn Palace. Kids are well-catered for in this sizable museum, home to over 160,000 objects. Find everything from soft-play areas to interactive exhibits, virtual reality experiences, and a TechLAB for hands-on activities with technology like laser cutters.
Given the size of the museum, quirky exhibits can easily be missed. To ensure you see all the highlights, consider booking a private tour, which often includes hotel transport plus dedicated guides. For time-pressed travelers, skip-the-line tours and entry tickets are a good way to speed up entry in the busier summer periods, when lines outside the door are more likely. City passes either cover admission or offer discounted rates to help you save some vacation money, too.
