to my knowledge the only museum open until 22h! i.e. you can plan a visit after the other museums close (usually at 18h). Entrance is even cheaper after 20h! You learn everything about digital music, modern music and the old composers. You can compose your own music, conduct an orchestra, find out everything you always wanted to know about music....

I enjoyed it, my wife enjoyed it, and my 2 year old enjoyed it. Kept everyone entertained for a few hours. If you are in Vienna for the history and splendor, skip it. But if you have kids and need to give them a break from palaces, this is the place to go!

A fascinating interactive museum for anyone interested in sound and music. Great explanation about how sound 'works', interesting feature on the 'famous locals' and a chance to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic! Reduced rate in the evening and it was not too busy.

I came to Vienna as a day trip from Slovakia. The Museum of Music was my favourite and you get a feel of how important Vienna was in the 1800s as the cultural centre of Europe.

We visited it as a suggestion from a friend and we didn't regret the choice. The rooms are very interesting,full of information regarding different kind of sounds. There are also rooms dedicated to great composers like Mozart. We enjoyed the game where we composed our own song and the room where we could lead an orchestra. The building is not... More

The building was originally a palace where Otto Nicolai, the founder of the philharmonic orchestra of Vienna lived. Four floors dedicated to teaching various technical aspects of music: one can create a waltz, conduct an orchestra, listen to various sound effects, etc. There are also rooms teaching about several musicians from Vienna. It takes 1-2 hours to visit everything. We... More

Haus der Musik blew us away with its amazing displays. Each level was filled with interesting artefacts and engaging hands-on activities. The lower levels relate more to sound in general whilst the upper levels cover the historical side of Western music. Haus der Musik also contains a souvenir shop on the top floor where many music-related gifts can be purchased.... More

A surprisingly fun and interactive musical experience. Situated on a cute side street in the center of Vienna. The Vienna Symphony members will make you want to conduct all the musical pieces they have available (the feedback you get from the Vienna symphony players when one fails to conduct properly is more amusing than finishing the piece correctly)

This place had a mixture of exhibits to do with composers and ones for technical music and sound, like how the ear works. I found the latter quite boring, and there were too many audio activities to get through. The composer stuff i liked, but it was basically just a lot of reading and i could have done that anywhere...
