This museum has many exhibits and tries hard. Alas it is uneven. The demonstration of a sound wave is clear and cool. The explanation of how our ears translate waves into sound reads like a medical text. A fun exhibit allows you to blend sound...More

This place has great reviews but I have no idea why. It is uninteresting, not engaging, random and incoherent. Our musically interested kids were completely bored until we got to the gift shop. The cafe is self-serve vending machines.

We went to the evening concert at the haus. Bought tickets at Stephansplatz. It was a very nice concert for the classical layman. Multiple short background stories and recognizable tunes with a humorous presentation. Certainly worth a go.

Wonderful evening spoilt by a child clambering over chairs & talking. If I could’ve gotten out to speak to someone without further disturbing everyone I would have. I’d suggest an age minimum. The orchestra was fantastic, the singers & dancers also.

We visited Haus der Musik on a Friday evening after dinner - it was brilliant. It was educational, interactive and 'fun'. Our children really enjoyed this museum as did we.It would be our number one pick of museums to see for families when visiting Vienna!

This fascinating place is a mixture of museum and interactive exhibitions about the science of sound and music, covering a wide range of topics from key Viennese composers to how we perceive different sound types. Suitable for all ages, it's definitely not a traditional style...More

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks

Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)

Vienna is an attraction itself with a lot of landmarks that can be stunned at from outside. But in the end you will have to pay the admission(s) if you wanna see more than the facades. Some sights are "cheaper" others cost more. As I don't know the prices of the various sights and attractions, I cannot say what is actually cheap. Many churches don't charge for entrance (e.g. St. Stephen, Jesuitenkirche). I am always amazed why people focus on Naschmarkt which is one of less markets in...More

You could visit Naschmarkt on day 2 on your way back from the palace. Subway line U4 linking the center and Schönbrunn also serves Naschmarkt. Get off at Kettenbrückengasse and leave the subway station through the exit located at the front of the train.
