  • You can see it, but the horrendous price of audio guide is s t w a s little exaggerated..., that you get to see is clean and nicely draped but it is all in all a single dark room

  • We spent a good hour here. All the displays have excellent English translations. I loved the old films and the way in which the subject was tackled.  more »
  • The Museum is very small, but very nice designed by the atmosphere and the display of the exhibits. Unfortunately, I had the feeling that the website promises previously far too much. I was disappointed and felt somewhat as a promotional event of "cemeteries Wien GmbH" (touted were including death masks, diamonds, etc.). I think there are a lot more interesting museums in the city.

  • Small but nice Museum that is recommended particularly in the "long night of the museums".

  • An other more relaxed perspective on the subject of death.

  • An advance: the Museum consists only of two rooms. Who wants to go through quickly, it has 15 minutes behind. So please not so disappointed. In particular, the main room of the exhibition is beautiful atmospheric otherwise. Almost eerily, the enigmatic sound effects underscore the mood of the subject (I was the only one in the room also during my visit in January 2017). After the visit of the Museum, a stroll across the central cemetery is recommended of course (this map don't forget if you certain honorary graves want to see on the site is really spread out).

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
