  • We have this museum linked to the Mozarthaus (combined ticket). There is a small photo exhibition dedicated to the Vienna Philharmonic, but the real originality comes on the floors. There is a captivating audiovisual exhibition on sounds where the visitor Thanks much interactive sex positions can in dipping. Another floor recounts in several beautifully landscaped corners and rooms on the great composers like Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss and others Mahler. At the end of this tour you will have the chance to own the wand in the hand and the Vienna Philharmonic through a large screen by bv. the Radetzky March. Very fun to do. You can also compose a small piece of itself with electronic tools. Splendor of a museum.

  • Impressive museum, one of its kind! I enjoyed many interactive features this museum offered as well as the exhibitions dedicated to Viennese classical and modern composers such as Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mahler, and many others. I'd allocate at least a couple of hours to explore what this museum has to offer. If you purchase Vienna Pass, admission is included. Wish there were more interactive museums like this one.
  • Not a big fan of museums, but I liked this one very much. It's entertaining and you can find out many thinks you didn't think about. I recommend it
  • This was excellent museum covering many musical themes. Well presented with a number of hands on exhibits. Children should enjoy it as well as all adults
  • If you are really into classical music and the old composers you will enjoy this museum... I expected more interactive stuff so I was a little disappointed
  • Awesome! If there would be only zone muséum to thats the one! You learn, with fun! Spent 2h30 there like a blink!

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.
