This Museum is the second of the two sibling museums at Ring Boulevard and was built in the same style as the Museum of Fine Arts, according to designs by Gottfried Semper and Karl Hasenauer. The vast collection in this huge building houses objects of interest in the worlds of minerology, petrography, anthropology and prehistory. There is also the Saurians Hall and models of big animals. A children's corner offers videos and exhibits to play with and investigate, which is marvelous for both parents and children as it offers an amount of space to move and touch unusual in museums, which are often rigorously policed by the museum wardens.
