Easter-Program at the Natural History Museum Vienna

05. April 2022
There are large and small, round and square, green or spotted - there are all kinds of eggs to be found in the animal world! But there are not only lots of eggs to discover during the Easter programme at the NHM Vienna, the Easter Bunny also leaves his mark.
Rabbits are an easily recognisable, very successful group of mammals, but they are not rodents.
Rabbit and hare are not the same thing, even though it is called "Easter Rabbit" in English and "Osterhase" in German. But what are the differences between the two? And why did the rabbit become the Easter symbol par excellence? In addition to the real hares, the themed tours also introduce the False Hare, Sea Hare, Spring Hare, Pampas Hare and Roof Hare, as well as the "Easter Bilby" from Australia.

For many animals, the offspring also hatches from the egg. In a short guided tour for children, there are interesting stories about egg-laying animals! Afterwards, the riddle rally leads to many different and unusual eggs: the biggest and the smallest, eggs that are not egg-shaped at all and eggs with special colours and patterns.
