This is one of the best topic museums. I believe everybody, who is doing something with music, should visit this House. Here you will see the history of classical music. There is also some interaction ganes, where you will also learn new things.

I'm not big on classical so I thought it was just ok. There were some cool interactive areas that involved/explained the science of sound. They were very cool and my 13 year olds loved them.

My wife and I visited today with our three sons and a girlfriend, all of whom are amateur musicians. We were disappointed with the museum. It was a beautiful space, but we thought that it was going to be more focused on musical instruments which it wasn't.

Overall this museum might interest younger teenage children that are interested in music, but for me and my 16-year old son (who plays viola) the museum did not have enough interesting stuff to justify the price and time to visit.

The Haus der Musik is a museum devoted to music, musicians, and sounds. It is highly interactive, starting from its entrance - a keybord on the stairway. There are rooms were you can "compose" a waltz by playing dices, another where one can experience the physical aspects of music, another one where you can prepare your onw CD. There is... More

Being music students this was a place my friend and I decided to go without question and we're so glad we did! It was informative, interactive and generally a great place! It definitely isn't reserved for music fanatics as it has lots of fun interactive exhibitions making it user friendly and not a dull experience. There is a bit of... More

First of all - I'm not the biggest connoisseur of classical music, so it was quite a challenge to visit Haus der Music. I have to admit it was quite interesting experience, though. The section with the biographies and artifacts of the greatest Austrian composers might be a little bit overwhelming, but the sounds experiments on other floors and all... More

Haus der Musik - the amazing and original way to make super intresting and interactive content from old and boring things. We spent there more than 3 hours, enjoying the unusual sound expirience at Sonosphere (2nd floor), diving into the historical world of vienneze famous composers and trying to conduct Vienna Philharmonic (3rd floor)

Mid afternoon. 26 euro for my wife and I. Cables lying about the floor. Rooms that were being vacuumed whilst we tried to walk through them. Headphones that failed to work. Guy on cash desk looked like he had lost a fiver and found 5 pence. Not an experience I would wish to repeat.

It was interesting for an hour or so, but if the museum had been crowded, the experience would have been much less fun. Teens liked it more than Tweens. Conducting the philharmonic was cool. Long line though... You can get a joint ticket for the museum and Mozarthaus.

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.
