If you are the music type, definitly check this place out. You can find very cool things. From piano stairs, sounds of citys to conducting an orchestra. The personal was very nice and advised me to wait a couple of minutes, till after 8, when the ticket was half price.

My husband and I are currently in Vienna for a pre-Christmas trip and decided to stop at The Haus der Musik as per a recommendation in our Lonely Planet. **Note**: If you are an adult, I would recommend going in the evening since the place is open until 10pm. The attraction is swarming with children during the day and would... More

We visited the Haus der Musik with two sons, ages 16 and 19, and we all enjoyed ourselves. Admission is half-price at 8pm, and because there were only a few other families in the museum at that time, we had time to see most everything and do the interactive displays in two hours time. (If you go during the day,... More

Vienna breathes music. It is all around you but definitely more so within the Haus der Musik. This interactive musical masterpiece surpassed all my expectations. Children will love it and adults easily become children. I will not go in any detail because I can never do justice to this wondrous place. The museum was planned to perfection, where knowledge and... More

This museum had high praise in the various guide books, but I was so disappointed. Let me describe exactly why. The third floor is devoted to the life and times of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and other composers from Vienna. I expected to be able to hear selections of music that illustrated each man's works. In fact, each room had a... More

This is so well done. Totally absorbing for the 2 hours I spent there. For a full description of what you'll find - best to go to the web site or similar. But what you won't find on a web site is an awareness of the high quality and variety of what can be done with sound and music. I'm... More

Allow at least two hours to see it all. We visited in the evening and it was quite quiet and there's a discounted rate. Definitely recommended.

In fairness, my viewpoint may be tainted by having visited the music museum in Hamamatsu, Japan, which is filled with instruments and music from all over the world. Still, it might have been more accurate had this museum be named "The Principles of Sound + info about some of Vienna's great composers." It was an odd mix of high tech... More
