Spent 3 hrs. In this museum, bowled over by the floor devoted to Austrian composers.we also loved the floor about the Vienna Philharmonic & it's history. There is a film room with films of the orchestra playing- excellent sound. One room has a fun "compose your own Waltz" game and the museums shop is really outstanding for musical gifts. Highly...

If you are a musician, music teacher, or just love music and want to learn more about the history and science of music, this is a great museum. Has a lot of historical memorabilia from various composers like Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss, Brahms, etc... Highly recommend!

When we searched for things to do close to our hotel this popped up and sounded interesting. All of us, kids ages 10-13 included, really loved this museum. It was interactive, educational and just plain fun. There were enough kid friendly actives to keep my kids engaged while I was able to absorb the educational and more in depth parts... More

I went there with my six-year-old son as I wanted an interactive father-son activity to fill the day. The truth is that I waited for more. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, nothing to sophisticated, many devices weren't properly working and there was a confusion with English speaking visitors in some parts of the museum.

The most overrated, outdated museum I've ever seen. Based on Trip Advisor reviews and Rick Steves recommendations, we threw away our $26 US (for 2 of us) on this poor excuse for a "house of music" in Europe's center of the classical music world. All I can tell you is it's an hour or two you'll never get back. Seriously,... More

Loads of exhibits for all the Great classical and romantic composers. Have quite a few floors for you to explore and do reserve time to play at the piano in the lobby to complete your trip.

Took the kids here instead of the Children's Museum as it seemed it might be more age appropriate (10-13 yr olds). However, the interactive exhibitions were very confusing - instructions and descriptions in English were difficult to understand the purpose and use of them. The exhibition on famous composers was of interest, but to adults and not the kids.

Based on many reviews, I thought this would be a lot more interesting and enjoyable for young children than it actually was. I did see many groups of older (pre-teen) children who seemed to be having a good time so perhaps most of the exhibitions are not targeted at young kids.

I understand that it is just an issue of taste but this was not one of my favorite sites. The nice thing about it is it is open late. It is open until 10pm most nights I believe. It is very interactive and there is a lot of information. I found however that some of the interactive computer programs didn't... More

It was hard trying to cram so much into a short visit to Vienna, so I was excited this museum was open late. 10pm, I believe. I had a fun time here, but I bet kids would have a blast! Getting to 'conduct' the philharmonic was a kick! And all the exhibits were in multiple languages, so it is very... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
