My husband and I are both musicians, so naturally, we went to the Haus der Musik... and, we LOVED it! It was such a fun, interactive way to explore and learn about music, sound, etc. The expos were visually interesting, with enough information without being overwhelming. Plus, again, a lot of it was INTERACTIVE! Even for people who are not... More

We found the first floor exhibits on orchestras and conductors moderately interesting. The third floor dealing with famous Vienna composers: Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Mahler and also Johannes Strauss is very interesting. Excellent audiotape - very instructive

My husband and I decided to go at night as it's 50% off after 8pm and there are far less people. The problem is that staff clearly don't want to be there at night. We paid for our ticket and weren't told where to go, so we were swiped into the lift and left to our own devices. We decided... More

Despite the mixed reviews, we decided to visit. We enjoyed much of the museum. The second floor which focuses on sound was not very interesting. The best part was the third floor which had a very good audio guide. There were several small rooms and each one was dedicated to one composer. Learned a lot. A favorite was watching my... More

Well, we were warned by some reviews but our guidebook had rated it as a must see and some reviewers liked it so we decided to give it a try. Honestly, except for the third floor and the helpful audioguide, it was a waste of our money. We expected interactive and high-tech but instead we found it too theoretical and... More

This isn't one of must see museums, but it is interactive and informative. This is not a bad place to spend two hours in Vienna as it is open till 10 PM and you can go there after other bigger and more important museums have closed.

For those who love music this is a must visit! There is information and artefacts from the lives of major composers, interactive games to learn about sound and music (which go into some in depth and complicated ideas) along with an amazing array of sounds and music to listen too.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the Haus der Musik. I had purchased a combination ticket elsewhere and since this museum is open until 10pm it was easy to drop by later in the day after other museums were closed. The interactive exhibits were lots of fun, they were probably targeted toward kids but I enjoyed conducting... More

You really need a couple of hours to get your head around some of the sound technology concepts, and soak up the life stories etc. of famous Austrian composers. You have to be pretty interested in music to enjoy this attraction, but there is plenty of hands-on stuff to do, and experiences involving sound to enjoy.

We aren't major music lovers but went to spend some time learning about some of the major composers. A good mix of touch screens, audio info and museum type exhibits so we spent about an hour and a half going round. Some of the touch screens weren't brilliant but they were made up for by things like the half globes... 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.
