Fodor's Review

The palatial 19th-century museum, twin of the celebrated Kunsthistorisches Museum, is the home of, among other artifacts, the Venus of Willendorf, a tiny statuette (actually, a replica—the original is in a vault) thought to be some 20,000 years old. This symbol of the Stone Age was originally unearthed in the Wachau Valley, not far from Melk. The reconstructed dinosaur skeletons draw the most attention, especially among kids. Tours are Friday at 4 and Saturday at 3.
