Exhibiting and educating

From geological phenomena to Earth's history, dinosaurs to sparkling gemstones, the evolution of humankind to its cultural development – the Mezzanine at the NHM Vienna presents a variety of interesting topics in recently redesigned exhibition halls.

One of our major challenges in the coming years will be to redesign the zoological collection on the first floor while at the same time maintaining the special atmosphere in the historic display rooms.
In future, the temporary exhibitions hosted at the NHM Vienna will place an even greater focus on current topics that affect us all.


Our exhibitions and educational activities are aimed at the widest possible audience. Participants of all ages taking part in the activities are invited to get involved and to discover topics and objects from a new perspective with the help of our expert guides. Diversity is a major focus in this context.
