Watch the film, again if you have already seen it. Then visit this remarkable small museum. If you can, stay on for the Zither concert, entertaining and informative. Best wishes to all involved in this labour of love.

This was something different. The enthusiasm of the museum's owner/guide kept us enthralled for more than an hour. His collection of artifacts and his knowledge of his subject was amazing. If you have seen the film and remember it with pleasure please don't miss this treat.

Found museum easily with aid of map. Stones throw from Nachsmarkt. A fascinating museum with much film memorabilia and also a very interesting section on Vienna life pre, during and post WW11. If you are lucky enough to be able to chat with the owner you'll find he has a vast amount of knowledge not only on the movie but... More

We read about this museum prior to our trip to vienna so made a point to watch the film before hand which I would recommend doing if you intend visiting here. This museum isn't open all the time but luckily on wednesday afternoon there was a tour at 2pm. We found this collection of memorabilia really interesting, but what really... More

A small private museum run with much enthusiasm. Quite difficult to find and only open on Saturday but worth the effort. Interesting displays relating to the film and more generally about Austria during WW2.

It is very interesting in general, if you are a fan of that movie even more. However we found the third part of the exhibition about post WWII Vienna the most interesting one. Give yourself a least 2 hours for the museum even though you could rush through it in 30 minutes. And be sure not to miss the Zitter... More

The museum itself is fascinating and extensive (although you will obviously get more out of it if you've seen the film) but the insights and anecdotes offered by the owner/guide, not only about the film but about post-war Vienna in general, make this place a real gem and unlike any other guided tour I have ever experienced. We had only... More

A fascinating insight not only in to the making of the film, but also into post-war Vienna life for both the Viennese as well as the Allied Forces. The owner is well informed and enthusiastic - a brilliant guide! Well worth a visit!

A friend and I visited The Third Man Museum as a part of a Cold War Vienna walking tour led by Gerhard Strassgschwandtner, the founder of the museum. We had watched the movie prior to traveling to Vienna and debated as to whether to include the museum in our short 2 1/2 days in Vienna. I am SO glad that... More

The tour was riveting and the host charming and knowledgeable. Fun and informative. Loads of unique artifacts, many one-of-a-kind. Historically important.
