  • מקום מעולה להגיע אליו, ללמוד על היסטוריית המוזיקה הקלאסית בשילוב עם היום.. לחוות את הצלילים בצורה שונה , נוח ומתאים במיוחד לילדים...!!! 
  • Spread over 3 floors, with a part on the compositteurs, one on the sounds (very fun) and one on the music she even. Nice on a cold day of December

  • Enter the House of music and how to make an experience somewhere between the dreamlike and the scientific. The Museum tells the history of music, but mixes interactive experiences and a great ability to engage people who visit in a series of experiences related to the world of music. How to play the instruments, as they bind together, the story of great musicians, but also physics and dynamics of the sound, so to understand what happens in various environments and because they feel or don't feel frequencies and words. Very nice experience to direct the Vienna Philharmonic with a virtual mechanism that interacts with the orchestra. What can we say? We spent three hours without realizing it by learning a series of physical concepts and learning to understand the differences related to the world of concerts and great musicians. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to live an experience of unmuseo who really knows how to engage and not only convey boring historical notions.

  • Highly recommended. Lots to do here. My only gripe is that some of the exhibits were not functioning properly when we were there. Go at night. It's half priced and almost empty.
  • The museum is beautifully designed with high quality, interactive spatial and digital exhibits. I came back when I could dedicate more time to each activity. Set aside a minimum of two hours to get the most out of your experience. Great for adults and older children. Easily my favorite museum in Vienna.
  • A palpable history of Vienna's culture of musical history. Multilingual staff makes it a good destination for tourists from all over the world. Must say, we remember it most for the sayings dotted around the walls. Staggeringly philosophical.
  • It's beautifully designed I'll give them that, but feels low on content. Maybe it's more geared at kids and family but most of the interactions were basic knowledge. Myself and friends (aged 19-27) found little to do. Expected some more historical instrument exhibitions or something. The one slightly redeeming feature was the interactive conducting simulator. Really quite fun but could use some more tunes. So more for kids.
  • Very unique and interesting museum. Great for the kids as its very interactive. Gives you an insight into the lives of the fathers of classical music. Worth a visit.
