For me and the kids (4 and 5 years) it was a bit boring. Thought it would be more engaging and exciting.

This is a great place if you are a music fan. In fact even if you are not, it is great place to learn about the history of Vienna and its music legends. It has four floors of history related to traditional and modern music with an opportunity to be the conductor of your own music with the Vienna symphonic... More

This was first station at our Vienna tour with our kids, from the very beginning all attractions were very interesting and interactive (starging with music stairways). This was very important to keep children's attention. From the other side it was not just simple play, kids used to learn some things so all in all, 3 hours spent in Haus der... More

It is only fitting for Vienna to have a great music museum like this one. A must visit. The 1st floor is dedicated to the Museum of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra. You can see and listen to several presentations. There is also a Waltz Dice Game, where you roll a soft dice and a computer mixes your own waltz composition... More

I love this small museum. It is very approachable and gives you a great sense of music from Vienna but from far beyond. If you stay long enough and remember what you learn, you could pass Music 101.

The museum was just fantastic with a lot of interactive exhibits about the composers. We had a great time at the museum and saw it slightly later in the evening. I would recommend seeing the composers rooms.

This is a fabulous museum - lots of interactive sound exhibits, history of composers and a brilliant layout. Lots for children and adults - you can spend a couple of hours here. Don't miss the interactive conducting exhibit and the piano key stairs!

We could have easily spent more time here. It was so much fun! I loved the composer's rooms as well and the exhibit on sound. The womb was incredible. This museum has so much to offer, I can't imagine being here and not going to this wonderful place.

We had a great time at this museum. It was a great place to go in the evening because it is open later than other attractions. Some things worked better than others, but our kids had a great time. The time of year also allowed for very few people visiting, so we had it almost to ourselves which was nice.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
