I enjoyed spending an afternoon in this house. Every floor holds a new experience that already starts when you walk up the stairs which are built to be the keys of a piano. The part I liked most was the composers. One room for every great master lets you learn about their lives, music and more. I can recommend the... More

It started out has an interesting experience for the first part of the visit. Learned a lot about the science of sounds and how the human earring works with fun and interactive activities. On the second part of our visit, a group of 16-17 years old where running everywhere screaming and playing hide-and-seek in the museum... After half an hour... More

The museum is very interesting and has a lot of interactive activities. Our visit was however ruined when a group of poorly supervised teenagers came rushing in screaming and making a lot of noises all over the place. We could not properly listen to our audio guides or enjoy the rest of the visit. When we reported to a museum... More

I really enjoyed this. Lovely building. Covers the history of Viennese music as well as the physics of sound and some ideas about composition. Really unique and a welcome respite from churches and paintings. The staff was very helpful. When I came in the morning, rather than take my money, they warned me there was a large school group inside... More

Haus Der Musik is a very unique music experience. Each level and room has different displays to learn about the science of sound as well of some great composers and musicians throughout history. The displays are very interactive, and the most exciting section lets you "conduct" the Vienna Orchestra. Very fun way to spend an afternoon inside.

The museum is not one of those where you just walk about and look. Here you interact with the exhibits to understand how they work. It's actually more interesting when you are involved. Compose your own music, see the sound, experience acoustic illusions and much more. The museum is located not far from the Stephan Cathedral (check out the map).... More

The exhibits worth seeing were the classical composers. Great opportunity to teach the children who the great classical composers were. At the end of the exhibition was a very cool simulation game of the Vienna philharmonic orchestra. We got to conduct the orchestra by choosing from 6 classical movements. Waving the baton at the screen in front of a camera... More

If you are in Vienna, either classical music, or waltz, or jazz everybody has something. The House of Music is like the Vienna music scene, there is from everything a little. YOu can have intercatic displays, or you can just watch music. Even there is a piano in the courtyard, where you can play.

They've spent a fortune on this lovely new museum, dedicated to the theory of music and sound. It's spread out over 5 levels and is superb for anyone with more than a passing interest in the subject. Even the slightly dry subject of the great composers have been presented in an inventive, interesting way. It's very good for kids and... More

Great displays about individual classical composers and a friendly Grand piano in the courtyard where you can play. There is an amazing acoustic laboratory where you get to play with the displays and you will experience the machines ability to render you speechless and you will experience a number of acoustic illusions.

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.
