The Third Man Museum, Vienna

(4.8/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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. Put The Third Man Museum at the forefront of your travel plans using our Vienna trip generator.

  • The Third Man Museum is a labor of love that must be seen by any visitor to Vienna. Check your schedule, because it's only open Saturdays from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., but an hour or so at this Saturday aft...  more »

  • Amazing experience. If you have seen the Third Man movie, you would love it. Even if you have not seen, this will be a great experience. The owner has collected all sorts of things from the movie set and have decided to share it with the public. The staff is just great. It takes you to a different era. Great pictures of Berlin WW2 era. A must for Visitors to Vienna.
  • An informative and charming museum for fans of the classic noir movie, "The Third Man". The collections, which are based in three different apartments, are private, and the museum is run by the owner and his wife. They gave me a very enthusiastic and friendly welcome when I visited, making this a high point on my Vienna museum tour. The personal touch is so rare in museums these days, but this place has it!
  • Well worth the visit! Even if you haven't seen the movie yet (which I haven't) you can appreciate the collection of movie memorabilia. The shining highlight is the history of Vienna / Wren after WW1 through WW2 and the rebuilding. With your admission you'll receive discounts on three other elements of the Third Man movie: 1.) tour of the underground / sewers, 2.) a walking tour and /or 3.) screening of the film. Also 1€ off on a drink at the Café Museum. Ask for the booklet to get the discounts
  • Worth checking out! as cineast or viennese faddist. Due to the only open Saturday almost a insider tip. And watch the movie 3rd Man/in eng. with Olson Wels ,playing every Sunday in Burg Kino .
  • An amazing collection of movie related items. An old projector plays a two minute clip of the film. The museum staff does a great job of moving the visitors between the three individual spaces. Also ties pre/post war Vienna history to the movie.
