  • We (a 21 and 18 year old) had lots of fun playing around in this museum. It wasn't too busy but if it got any busier I don't think it would have been as good because there are a limited number of inte...  more »

  • If you think it's just about music and opera, you're right! But it's so much more. There are games and interactive displays to pull you into the exhibit. Really enjoyed the time there, as I was expecting it to be different to what it was. Cheap to get in and worth the visit
  • I love museums... really do, especially good ones and this one is. information, entertainment, interactivity. .. it's all there. The target audience is both kids and adults and it's really working. Also it's open late (22:00) and as a consultant it's awesome to be able to go to a museum after hours and enjoy. Thanks
  • The musicians were good, the front man was knowledgeable and cracked a few good jokes. The ballerina needs work. She didn't have good lines, had heavy feet, she made few positions look awkward and was missing an "elegance" about her. But overall, it was a good show.
  • It is very educational, and at the same time, it is so much fun. We were there for 4 hours and we never felt tired. It is a must-see!!
  • Interesting museum concept, but requires some renovation and modernising of the exhibits. Some things displayed were 'temporarily out of order' when I visited 'due to humidity', but no mention of such things on the website.

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.
