  • I was a bit worried with some rooms of the museum - highly educational and very interactive but requiring a bit of understanding of anatomy and physics. Still, if you keep on going you discover new an...  read more »
  • It's a concert tour but certainly a wonder by site and by the musicians dressed in time, only a but they can't enter with coat, jacket etc and maremagnum that forms is impressive, however it is worth entering in spite of this, the price of a decent town of 65 and 75 euros onwards

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great place for families and people interested in music, some facilities didn't work properly.. but in all my family had a great time
  • Nice surprise! Really interactive museum about music and sound. Ideal for children of different ages, I went with 1'5, 3 and 11 years old children and all of then in their ways had lot of fun. We were planning to stay one hour and two just fly without noticing. Highly recommended!
  • Interactive and fun experience of sound and music! Extensive history of many well renowned classical artists. My tip: check it out in the evening, prices are cheaper and probably less crowds!
