A very nice well arranged museum giving not only the story of the famous film the Third Man , but also presenting the story (with pictures and documents) about Vienna before and after the World War 2. We spent more then two hours in the museum and probably the double would have been necessary to fully enjoy what the museum... More

I have lived in Vienna for nearly 6 years & shown my video of the film over the years to my many visitors. I finally went along yesterday with my latest visitor to see the museum (had only done the sewer tour before). The founders' passion for the film and that period in Vienna comes across in in multiple ways.... More

THANK YOU !!!!!! You are right: A map of Vienna showing us where the key scenes of The Third Man were shot is missing !! I'll add it now soon to the very first room, remember where you've seen a chronological array of the many lobby cards / press photos. Each shooting location on the map will get a colored... More

We arrived in Vienna yesterday and, as we usually do, we checked out Trip Advisor for recommended tours and attractions. The city of Vienna itself is magnificent and quite overwhelming with so many incredible cathedrals, museums and historical places of interest. We spent a number of hours wandering about, getting our bearings and trying to make a short list of... More

We engaged the owner of the museum for a walking tour focused on 20th century history, especially the WWII and post war period. We ended at museum, which is quite amazing. It is full of memorabilia related to the film. We even got to see a 2 minute segment of the film where Harry Lime attempts to escape via the... More

The title says it all--I have loved The Third Man with an intense passion for decades, seen it countless times (even while staying in Vienna, couldn't resist!) and planned my trip around the museum being open on Saturdays from 2-6. It's a private museum and the owners are passionate about it, too, plus they've presented an excellent look into life... More

The Third Man has been one of my favorite films for many years. One of the smartest films from the postwar era and a morality tale that still packs power today. The museum is a loving memorial to the movie, full of posters and memorabilia, but also with an entire section devoted to postwar Vienna that functioned as a mini-museum... More

My husband is a great fan of the film and loved everything about it. I found the history of the immediate post war very interesting and the photos very moving in some cases.

This was a wonderful find, interesting and full of information both about the film and about post-war Vienna. It was all fascinating. It isn't necessary to watch the film first, but doing so increases the enjoyment of the museum. It was so much fun to speak with the owners who are so enthusiastic about their museum. If the market at... More

Museums not your thing? Well, be prepared for a big surprise! This is an extraordinary find, which Trip Adviser led us to in the first place and hence we expected it to be good...but it is much more than that. This is unique and a wonderful experience because you will see memorabilia and re-creations of what some argue is the... More

This museum was created by one man, following his passion. He has collected and displays an enormous number of objects related to The Third Man movie, and to the historic period of Allied-occupied Vienna.
