This was an absolute joy to visit. We have two children (10 and 12) who got an enormous amount out of the museum. There are many hands on things to do which the children (and I) loved. The only downside was that when you go there in peak season (July and August), lots of the hands on things are single... More

One of the best museums I've ever been to! Interactive, great for both kids and adults, but especially for musicians! We really enjoyed everything and the prices for uni students were great too! Definitely recommended!

A mixed bag and in the end I left frustrated. 1st floor on the Viennese orchestra held no appeal. Just lots of information on all their conductors. 2nd floor tried hard with interactive sound lessons but was either too complex to understand (I'm a science teacher!) or just confusing. Was looking forward to the 3rd floor on the history of... More

A must-see museum for all music-lovers. 4 floors of interesting facts and activities starting already from the stairs leading to the first floor. Be prepared to spend there more then 2 hours if you want to try everything and enjoy the atmosphere. The museum works till 22.00, we came at 20.00 and got 50% discount for "night tickets", which was... More

From the musical steps to creating your own music by rolling a pair of dice to creating a soundscape from anything from sounds of bodily functions to city sounds, this is an excellent way to appreciate sound and music. Don't miss the opportunity to create a piece of music using Mozart's invention by spelling out your name. There are rooms... More

I though the whole museum was a bit wordy and wouldn't be very engaging really for people who weren't HUGELY into classical music and if you were that much into classical music to be bothered to read all the text you would probably know most of it anyway. The information about classical composers could be arranged to be much more... More

If you love music and want to learn something about sound, there is no better place in Vienna to go with your kids.We spent almost three hours there. From lovely piano stairs to the sonosphere you will get the real experience and your kids will definitely enjoy in it.

As our son has studied music, it was very interesting and useful! We wished we could have brought this museum home! Well organised, with much but not boring information. A must-see!

You cannot be on the city of music without visit The house of music :) Very entertaining for adult and for children. Many interactive experiences inside, so fun. Very well organized, it takes you through all what sounds and music are.

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.
