Naturhistorisches & Kunsthistorisches Museum in Wien

Maria Theresien Place

The two museum buildings are located directly on the Burgring in Vienna's city center, and can be reached with the underground lines U2 or U3. The buildings are only seperated by Maria Theresien Platz. A place dedicated to the royal ruler of House Habsburg. A monument in the middle of the place is remembering of  Maria Theresia, who is responsible for the introduction of compulsory education in Austria.

In winter there is a Christmas market here during Advent. But the real attractions definetely are the Natural History and the Art History Museum.
