A very rich and nice experience! If you like music or sound generally it's an absolute must to visit this museum. There are plenty of experiments, explanations and fun stuff to see, hear and learn about music. Even though we went during peak season, there was almost nobody in the museum. A good and interesting place to visit with children,... More

An interactive exhibit of the amazing complexity of hearing and how it works. I've never seen (heard!) anything like it. If you have ears, you need to visit this place. There are also exhibits on some of the famous composers of Vienna. And there's a video-based system that allows visitors to conduct an orchestra and see how they do. I... More

If you go, go early and consider starting at the top rather than the bottom so that your kids have a better chance to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic. The physics of music exhibit will especially interest teens.

I guess thats all must see if you are in Vienna. You can sing, you can Dance, you can rule your own orchestra...I would surely bring the Kids back, however i wouldnt go there without Kids.

This is a great way to spend a few hours if you are interested in music. The exhibits are very informative. The floor with the Great composers linked to Vienna has an audio guide. You can compose a waltz by throwing dice and conduct an orchestra. There's so much to see and do for all age groups. The entry fee... More

Super cool museum! We really enjoyed this museum as there was certainly something for everyone. We went with my 6 and 10 year old boys and there were so many buttons, screens, audio visuals, and interactive displays that they loved it. One level is dedicated to orchestra through the ages. There is even a display of batons used over the... More

We had a nice time at the haus der musik, although I did feel it was a bit of a strange mixture of a collection. There was a lot about famous composers - Mozart (mainly), Beethoven, Strauss, etc. They have sheet music, and some of their personal effects with information in English as well as German which was very helpful....

On 4 floors you get to understand SOUND in a lot of different interactive ways. Very creative and interesting museum. Though I must say that it was not enough. I was hoping to see less rooms about the history of classical music and more of these interactive games. Also it is a bit expensive, but I am happy that I... More

I'd give it 6 stars if I could. Disclaimer: I'm a classical music fan and I was traveling with a musician, so we may be a little more enthusiastic than the average person....but I think even a casual music fan would really enjoy this place. My Top Ten: 1. It's open until 10 PM. That really helped us feel like... More

This was definitely a highlight during my trip to Vienna. There is an interactive display on the science of how we hear sound and how we create sound. Also, a very interesting background on the famous composers who spent time in Vienna
