Do you want to meet an elephant in the heart of the Austrian capital? You can. OK, it is not a real one, but at least he lets you take a picture with him or climb on his back. You can find this elephant statue in front of the entrance to the Museum of Natural History (Naturhistorisches Museum) in Maria-Theresien-Platz in Vienna city centre. In fact the elephant stands just few steps from the statue of Maria Theresia herself.
Older close and more distant relatives of this elephant wait for you inside the museum. Four billion years of history of life on Earth are hidden behind the walls of Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna. The collections in Geology and Paleontology are among the most valuable ones. In the Dinosaur-Hall you can see a skeleton of the giant dinosaur Diplodocus or a head of the well-known predator Tyrannosaurus Rex.
