This place is incredible especially for kids. Every floor has a surprise for kids. I myself enjoyed it very much too. It is definetely one of the nicest Museums I have ever been in.

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...

Good place to explore Music! Fun for kids and adults. The associated store has nice stuff and is not too expensive. Also good place for buying individual souvenirs.

Def would NOT recommend this for families with children. Not very many interactive areas for the kids- the ones they had were not engaging and some were not working. There is an audio tour but def not interesting to my kids- ages 8 and 10. Might be great for adults but I would not waste time or money taking your... More

Excellent balance of learning and hands on to keep the kids engaged. Conducting the concert was so excellent. creating a song by rolling the dice. As an adult, I love the rooms focused on Austrian composers. One of my kids and my favorite museums (and we have been to a lot lately!). My kids are age 8 -10. if your... More

Its great , really interactive and really well presented however and this is a personal aspect the world of music doesnt just encompass classical music , the science of sound section could explore emotional response and also why certain frequencies make people and animals react in certain ways , for instance i'd love to know about the kings (elvis is...

The frosty greeting I received at reception was colder than the sub-zero temperatures outside. I was tempted to re-pocket my 12 euros and find another more inviting attraction. However, I did venture in. I enjoyed the floor dedicated to the history of the Vienna Philharmonic and videos of the New Year's day concert. The level about the science of sound... More

My family of 5 visited in December. My boys ( ages 9,11,17) all said this was one of their favorite things to do in Vienna. It really was pretty neat. Not at all what I expected. It pretty hands on ( boys loved that) and even my husband and I found it pretty neat. This would be a great place... More

Great way to spend the cold/windy day with kids. The kids enjoyed the stair piano, composing a song by throwing dice, and conducting the symphony.

Not what you might expect, actually much more entertaining than museum like, and very refreshing! You learn a great deal of history about the Masters of Classical Music. This part is very educational. One exhibit lets the "common person" conduct in an interactive fashion the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. If you mess up the on screen Orchestra stop's and ridicules your... More
