The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

A must visit place in Vienna. It offers an interactive cultural experience entertaining enough for any age. Everyone should take an hour or two to explore this museum and learn something about music and sound in general, but about the famous Austrian classical composers, their lives, and musical achievements.

I went to an evening concert here. I bought a ticket of 42 euros, expecting a concert in a beautiful room like you expect if you pay that amount. Instead we sat on wooden chairs in a simple room. The musicians were quite young (except for the male singer), and though they were adequate they didn’t sound like more experienced musicians.

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.

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)

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.

Excellent day out with so much to learn and do. Some excellent interactive displays for young and old. Conducting the Vienna Philharmonic is a must.
