The Third Man Museum, Vienna

4.9
#16 of 114 in Museums in Vienna
Dedicated to a 1948 film starring Orson Welles, The Third Man Museum appeals to movie buffs and history enthusiasts. Shot in 1948 in Vienna, "The Third Man" originally received mixed reviews and only ran in theaters for a few weeks. Today, the film is considered a classic thanks to its evocative portrayal of a damaged city in the years immediately following World War II. The museum contains a collection of film-related artifacts, including signed photos of stars, posters, and a 1930s projector used to screen a short clip from the black-and-white movie.

  • If you're a fan of the third man movie this museum is for you. The museum is own by a husband and wife duo, both are very familiar with the film and knowledgeable. The museum consists of three neighboring buildings. Two of the buildings have interesting memorabilia and the other building has artifacts from the time the movie is set (post world War 2). Overall the museum was an interesting experience, however, if you want the full experience you need to have seen the movie
  • Well. You need to love the film (and why wouldn't you? ) to appreciate the Museum. But the Vudnna context room was very interesting for all. And we were lucky to see the Zither concert as well. Lovely people!
  • I went here with a group of students and the owner gave us a tour of the place. He was so friendly and obviously passionate about his museum. The place explains post-WW2 Vienna in a way no one else in Vienna does, with lots of great historical pieces to enrich the learning. Also on the movie side, it was very cool to see so many artifacts and props from the movie there and on display! Also the projector from almost 100 years ago was incredible to see in action. Surprises me that there aren't more locals that go there.
  • Any fan of this iconic film who is interested in Vienna during and shortly after WWII should visit this privately owned museum. The artefacts sorrounding this topic that are displayed here are fascinating and the amount of passion and work that must have gone into creating this place is incredibly impressive. I had never heard of the "Third Man" and basically stumbled on this gem while looking for something to do in Vienna. And I'm glad I did. It was a great experience and well worth the visit and entry fee.
  • I came to the museum as part of a tour so I didn’t get to see the movie section but what I did see of the war history was expansive and extremely well catalogued. I was especially impressed by the video interviews which were quite moving and the sheer amount of memorabilia collected. I wanted to go back and see more but I ran out of time. It’s ok though, it just means I have to come back to Vienna and visit again!
