The mirror image of the Kunst-Naturhistorisches Museum, on the other side of the statue of Maria Theresa, is the Naturhistorisches (Natural History Museum). It was built for artifacts from 19th-century expeditions, such as a number of stuffed creatures long since extinct. The museum also tracks the geological, geographical, and biological history of Central Europe and displays the 22,000- to 24,000-year-old Venus von Willendorf statue, the earliest depiction of a female form ever discovered. It was found in Willendorf, Austria, in 1908.

Open Tuesdays through Mondays from 9 am to 6:30 pm, and Wednesdays from 9 am to 9 pm.
