  • This is such a fun place. Every one of our family members had a wonderful time. My only wish was that there would have been a piano or some musical instruments that one of the great composers had played present on the premises. There are replicas and other authentic instruments from that era. Anyone traveling should make an effort to go see this place. My kids had a great time.
  • Great museum. Fun. Interactive. Awesome. From conducting an orchestra to sitting down and listing to what a baby would hear inside a womb. It is a great family day at for tourists, educational trips and locals. It's a must do even if you don't like music
  • An unexpected surprise! The museum is interactive and fun, with plenty of things to do. Moreover, it is open until late at night which makes it a wonderful stop after most of the museums in Vienna have closed.
  • Beautiful performance. It is a little smaller than expected but it makes it quaint. Of you're a tourist, any seat is good, don't get fooled by "VIP".
  • We have made the 2 hour guided tour for kids. It was fabolous! The guide was so entertaining with kids, giving also good notions about music. And fun was not missing out, since the museum is really interactive. Highly recommended!
