I was really impressed by this museum, especially as Salzburg is such a small town. It is spread over five floors each with different themes.

On the ground floor there is the usual dinosaur exhibits as well as a large and really beautiful aquarium full of tropical and freshwater fish over 42 tanks. The first floor is covered in displays of minerals and precious rocks. The second floor has a space exhibit as well as lots of stuffed dead animals and a large repitle zoo including lots of snakes and turtles. The third floor exoplores the ice age and Africa. The fourth floor has a large section on the ocean and a journey through the human body. As part of that exhibit there is a rather extensive and graphic section on sex (including different positions!) and sexual health complete with x-rated video, I kid you not.

Even though most of the captions were not in English I spend a long time in here as it was visually very interesting.
