This museum actually has a number of locations throughout the city. We have only visited the main one, near the Karlskirche. Admission is listed on the website as 2 Euros, but as I recall we paid more like 5 Euros on a recent visit. It is free for visitors under 19 and free to everyone the first Sunday of the month. If I were traveling with kids, I would definitely bring them here for a quick breezy look at Vienna history, told through various artifacts like suits of armor, weapons, archeological items, models of the city and of buildings, portraits, fashions and items from everyday life at various periods of history. There are two interesting reconstructions: one of a typical Viennese apartment from the mid 1800s and one of the living room of the architect Adolf Loos. There is a very nice collection of paintings from the Biedermeier era. There are temporary exhibits as well. Recently we saw photos and objects from the 1950s. We have visited 3 times total, and it seems the exhibits have rotated each time--the sign of a dynamic museum. I would give it a 5 if there were explanations in English.
