Natural History Museum and its collection

Natural History Museum

The Natural History Museum in Vienna opened in 1889, and while originally it was meant to house the Habsburg's possessions, it became one of the most known museums dedicated to natural history. The figures and statues housed in the museum represent the progress in various fields of science over the years. The museum itself features a huge collection of minerals and gemstones, meteorites (largest display collection in the world), fossils of different species, a planetarium, exhibitions related to the ice age, evolution, prehistory, anthropology and more.
