Technical Museum in Vienna (German: Technisches Museum Wien) is a place where children learn the world through experiment. This is one of those museums where the exhibits can be touched, without the stress that someone will come and will terrible yell at you.

There is a lot of historical exhibits here, such as the first airplane, a steam engine of the nineteenth century, old cars (eg. the toy car of the Empress Elizabeth), but there are also modern multimedia exhibitions.

You can learn a lot about the world around us - where does the electricity come from, how the nuclear power plant works, how people communicated many years ago and the impact of modern technology on our lives.

An interesting place at the museum is a reconstructed mine, where you can see how in the old days coal was mined.
