Fun for kids

Lots of hands on activities kept kids interested. My son went from "not another museum" to "wow this is cool!"

Really fun museum to go to with friends! The upper floors are a lot more interactive than the lower ones, so if you don't have enough time, start up top. We did the night ticket, which is 1/2 price at 6.50 euro per person. The night ticket is for 2000-2200, which was the perfect amount of time for us. But... More

If you prefer a museum where you can touch and use things on display, this is the museum for you. It's a great place to bring your family and children. There are all kinds of displays to interact with. I also highly recommend visiting the somewhat hidden room on the first floor in which you can watch a recorded symphony!

Not a traditional museum, but more of a pedagogical experience to learn about music and its history hands-on. It might be more aimed at kids, but adults in town seem to love it also.

We only learned about the Haus der Musik from our guide on a half-day tour; otherwise, we would not have known. Our kids, 9 and 11, had a blast! The best activity was conducting an orchestra. You stand at a conductor's platform, pick music from a book, hold a baton, and attempt to conduct to a recording in the background... More

Interesting approach to music. Here you can discover or brush up on your knowledge about Vienna Philharmonic, Sonosphere, The Great Composers ( Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Johann Strauss, Gustav Mahler etc). Also, you can have a go at conducting the Vienna Philharmonic!

The Haus der Musik was pretty impressive! I loved the interactive exhibits and the rooms devoted to the composers. Most of the displays are text or video heavy and are too intricate for kids to understand. You would get your monies worth with teens or older who are really into music!

I visited the Haus Der Musik in January 2016. I bought a combination ticket for the Haus Der Musik and the Mozart Apartment Museum for 18 euros. The first floor had the history of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The third floor had rooms on several composers - Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Strauss. It was very interesting. It took me... 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.
