Very interactive museum, full of information and activities, but definitely directed towards children. We're in our early twenties and had fun, but we stood out as most other visitors were children with their parents. Seems like it would be good fun for a school tour - it's very educational as well as playful.

Visited with my son, who is a university music student. The lower of the two floors is devoted to the physics of sound and music, with loads of interactive stations, and also has a section about the history of the Vienna Philharmonic. The upper floor is less interactive, being mainly devoted to the history of the famous composers who called Vienna their home, including Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mahler. There is also an interactive conducting room, where you can try to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic

I found this small "museum" somewhat disappointing. The kiddies seem to enjoy it more, engaging with the interactive displays on the lower floors. The third floor has three rooms for composers: one each for Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. They were somewhat sketchy biographies given about each composer. Not much depth, I must say.

Response from NorthStar40612161914, Public Relations Manager at Haus der Musik

Dear margaretc007, thank you for your visit and taking time to sum up your impressions. I'm sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. If you want to go more into music historical depth even after your visit, I would like to suggest to visit our online museum guide at guide.hausdermusik.com, where you can retrieve extra background infos about the composers (Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, the Strauss family, Mahler, masters of the Viennese Modernism, the famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra) and all the museums objects. It is available in 8 languages and there is even one version for families. As you said at HdM there are a lot of interactive stations where visitors can become active themselves and experience new topics while having fun. That meets one of our goals: to give a broad approach to music and sound in all its aspects. We see ourselves as a good mixture of a classical museum and interactive science centre. Anyway, I hope that you enjoy reading the museums guide! Sending my best wishes from Vienna, Regina (PR Haus der Musik)

I was there beginning of February but it was nothing special! My expectations were higher! I wouldn’t book twice for such concert!

This museum was an interesting one to get a feel for the magnificence of the composers that have passed through this wonderful city. There are plenty of interactive exhibits like: conducting the Vienna Philharmonic yourself, composing your own music, seeing your name written in music in Mozart's hand, and seeing the Vienna Philharmonic in action in videos of the New Years concert and the summer concerts. Well worth a visit, also with kids.
