Great for the whole family! An excellent balance of music appreciation, music history, and the science of sound, with activities for the whole family... Could spend a whole day here!

Unfortunately, it rained for most of our visit to Vienna, so we opted to do some inside activities and thought we'd visit the Haus der Musik. I've been to a lot of museums and "interactive exhibits", and this was by far the most well done one that I've seen. The displays are well thought out, they're intuitive enough for virtually... More

This was the biggest waste of 24 euro (for two) -- if you get a big kick out of putting on headphones for interactive exhibits that either don't work or have no point even if they do work, this place is for you. Also, if you have screaming children that you just want to let loose so that you can... More

Perfect for adults and kids. We had a great time at Haus der Musik. You can even write your own symphony. Everything is interactive and Austrias most famous classical musicians are featured here.

They are open late some nights, and we almost had the place to ourselves at night. Exhibits are mostly interactive and are fun for all ages....try your hand at conducting the vienna symphony (very hard) or play Mozart's musical parlor game. Lots of great history about the giants of classical music all packaged well. GO AT NIGHT!

Brilliant Haus der Musik really educational and fun. liked especially the interactive exhibitions such as the dice game and the conductor suite. Its not very crowded so its very easy to move around helpful staff and if you want to leave your bags its free ( in vienna its unheard of!!!)

we had our daughter with us who is 4 years old and from all the other places in Wien she was exited with this museum. We also liked it very much especially for the interactive music games. It is very organised and it is worth to go with or without children. You can not imagine how quickly the time passes.

What could be better - learning while having fun interactively. We easily spent a few hours here culminating in "conducting" the Vienna Philharmonic at the end. Great fun (and harder than it looks). Excellent information about the science of music and displays of the great composers. Recommended if you have any interest in music. One of the best of it's... More

the haus der music offers amazing experience using very interactive high tech approach to present music, sounds, history, etc. It is one of the best museums I've seen. It can be also used as unique music store where you can buy any time of music you want.
