Schloss Schönbrunn offers a children’s museum that explores both the architecture and history of the palace in a way that is easily accessible to young children. Kids really like learning about what life was like for the children who lived there.
There are many hands-on items in the museum, such as historic toys, wigs, costumes, and smelling cans containing scents of the perfumes and foods of bygone years. The path through the museum is “lead” by Poldi, the friendly ghost, and at one point the kids discover “Poldi’s Room.” The museum is open on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays, and daily during Viennese school holidays.
Also on the Schönbrunn grounds are a maze, playground, park land, and the zoo.
