The museum was nicely laid out and easy to follow (don't start at the top like we "wisely" tried to do). The exhibits were presented in a modern, brief way. There weren't as many hands-on activities as expected, and most (all?) of the activities were computer-based rather than truly being able to play instruments to experience and create music. My...

We visited this magnificent museum during our recent stay in Vienna. The fact that we met the Director at a wedding in rural Austria ha nothing to do with our enjoyment of this museum. It was on our agenda anyway and far exceeded our expectations as it has very good displays of all facets of music & not just the... More

The museum has its interactive exhibits, which are interesting for kids, but is also a bit tedious in other rooms. I would not recommend a guided tour in this museum, although the guides seem very professional, I think this museum is best explored on one's own because it's easy to lose track of time in some of the rooms and...

The museum is a little underwhelming after hearing about it. There is a lot to learn about sound, but not much to actually learn about making music (what it promises to do). The conducting part was fun, but other than that I was disappointed, as there is no display of the development of music, styles etc.

. This is located over four floors in the former home of the first conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra,Otto Nicolai. There are so many displays of an interactive nature and a lot to do with sound, neither of which particularly interested me, but my favourite ones were childishly walking up thirteen steps with black and white keys that sounded...

This museum is quite new and has something for music lovers of all ages. Kids (and adults) will enjoy the many hands-on interactive exhibits, while those interested in the history of music will love the scores and other personal items from the many composers and conductors who lived and worked in Vienna, including Mahler, Mozart, Beethoven and many more.

I bought a combo ticket for this museum and Mozarthaus, which worked out to be good value for money (if you are a student/young person and present proof of age you get a discounted ticket too). I wasn't that impressed with Mozarthaus (although glad I saw it) but Haus der Musik was well worth the time because of the variety... More

This is a well-planned out museum with a variety of interactive and static exhibitions. Children (and adults...) can compose a Strauss waltz by throwing dice, play the Mozart minuet game and conduct the Vienna Philharmonic. Each floor is themed, so if you have particular interests you can skip the ones less interesting to you. Although my review of the Mozarthaus... More

It's mainly about the great composers who lived in Vienna and about the Vienna Philarmonic Orchestra. The interactive part of conducting the orchestra is just silly: you have to move the stick according to the music time, not too slow and not too fast. But there are other interactive parts there are great. You can "feel" the progressive deafness suffered... 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.
