The Third Man Museum, Vienna

4.9
#16 of 105 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.

  • My new favourite museum. Even if you don't think The Third Man is the best film ever - which it is - this museum is a complete delight and utterly charming, with an extensive collection of information and memorabilia related to the film as well as a huge amount of historical context about pre and post-War Vienna and the history of that wonderful city. It's run as a labour of love by the charming owners and has very limited opening times but I was fortunate enough to be in Vienna on a day when it was open. There is so much to take in that I could have easily spent even longer there if I'd had the time, but I came away with a great catalogue of the collection and a fantastic Harry Lime soccer shirt. Highly recommended!
  • If you think that The Third Man is one of the best films ever then you must visit this museum. It puts the film in the context of its time.
  • Very warm welcoming and knowledgeable staff and owner was very nice too. Great indepth exhibits featuring a raft of cool memorabilia, trivia and a range of posters, videos and audio clips for presentation. Its big and also has one section focus on the context of the film and Vienna during WW2. There's a gift shop that includes a cool music box of the famous Harry Lime theme and other goodies. Couldn't recommend this attraction enough for any tourists heading to Austria it s a hidden gem.
  • All about the film classic “The Third Man” and Vienna after the War. Alles rund um den Filmklassiker.
  • Take the tour. Very interesting with lots of Viennese history as well as the story behind the film.
