I happened upon this new (I believe) museum, near the Freud Museum. Seems to be a labor of love of the proprietor. Very extensive collection regarding three generations of the family, with a CD player to listed to in each room. I did not have...More

I can only underscore the previous reviews. We had a tour by Mag. Professor Reichenauer. He is superb -- a wealth of knowledge. And, he tells the Strauss family story with passion. Other than the music (which you hear samples of), he describes the different...More

We visited this new museum a few weeks ago while in Vienna. It is located on Muellnergasse 3, in the 9th District, about a 5-minute walk from the Sigmund Freud Museum. For Strauss fans, this museum is a must. When we visited, my wife and...More
