It is among the largest of its kind and one of the most important museums in Europe. The field of research covers a wide range of topics from the origins of our solar system and the evolution of animals and plants to human evolution, as well as prehistoric traditions and customs.
A part of the research staff also lectures at the University of Vienna. This stimulates research collaborations that SYNTHESYS+ Users can benefit from.
