  • Great, not only for the "basics" but for interactivity around the Museum. You can interact and learn so much about the music through practical examples. Really interesting!

  • Reasons why I didn't liked this place: 1. Some exhibits were just unavailable or broken (waltz dice game, sound gate and some others) 2. First and third floor contained a lot of information about Vien...  more »

  • It does not make sense if there is no House of Music in Vienna, since this nice city is well renowned for music. The House of Music is found in the centre of the city, very close to the Vienna Opera House. There are some 6 floors to visit which are very informative, interactive and also, they can be associated to science. Since they are interactive, they are popular with adults and children. There is a floor dedicated to Vienna’s classical composers. Even if you are not so keen on music, you will surely like this place.
  • Never been there before. Exhibition is very interesting. From the beginning you dive into music world. You can listen to some recordings of classical music, learn something about nature of sound, present on live concert stream, see private things of famous composers and even try yourself as conductor! It was really interesting, that I even forgot to make a photos :)
  • A fun and cool place to see all types of exhibit on sound and music. Many families were there and they had a whole section the Austrian Philharmonic Orchestra. The musical stairs are really fun, with each stair being a different piano key as you walk up them. The museum also has a coat check and a bathroom. You can buy the tickets in combination with your tickets to the Mozart Museum and save some money. I hope this review helps!
  • If you love music, music history, and understanding sound as related to music then this is the museum for you. There is a lot of information here and some interesting, interactive displays. However, I was a little disappointed there were not more hands-on displays, instruments, etc. It relied too much on reading and not enough on experiencing. Some of the displays were not functioning. Note: credit cards are accepted. Information is in German and English throughout the museum.
  • An amazing museum in which you can spend hours upon hours of your free time. It has 4 different floors and each one has its own unique theme. It explores music from two different perspectives, from a scientific and an artistic perspective. It is a lot of fun, it has a lot of content and i definitely don't want to spoil it for you.
