Dear Visitor,

Vienna is simply magical during Advent. With Christmas around the corner, a stroll through the many charming Christmas markets provides for the perfect Christmas mood among young and old alike and is a treat that can’t be missed if you are in the city. In just a few weeks we will be celebrating New Year, and we are already looking forward to the International Tourist Guide Day 2016.

International Tourist Guide Day 2016

Sunday, 21st February 2016: Museum of Natural History

We are very pleased to notify you about the Tourist Guide Day 2016. On this day, you can enjoy an extensive, interesting, and indeed fascinating programme in the Museum of Natural History.

Guided tours will also be offered in English.

As in the previous years, we are providing special tours for our blind and visually impaired guests which will take place two days earlier (19th February) in the afternoon.

Natural History Museum Vienna is home to world-famous and unique objects, such as the 29,500-year-old Venus of Willendorf, the Steller’s sea cow that became extinct over 200 years ago, and enormous dinosaur skeletons. Further highlights in the 39 exhibit halls include the world’s largest and oldest public collection of meteorites, including the spectacular “Tissint” meteorite from Mars, as well as the new permanent anthropological exhibition on the origins and development of humans. 

However, time does not stand still. That is why on the occasion of the museum’s 125th anniversary a new Digital Planetarium has been opened, featuring fulldome projection technology that will give visitors the chance to embark on fascinating virtual journeys in stunning scientific detail to the edge of the Milky Way galaxy or Saturn’s rings.
