Interactive music displays, lots of headphone/screen displays to learn music scientific facts. Different rooms on important Australian musicians. Easy to wander thru, and a break from more formal museums with tons of reading. Good for all ages. Fun layout on five floors.

It may not be hidden from the street when you are here but it is a short of a walk from city center. My wife is a music major. Me an engineer turned marketing/sales. We both enjoyed. Very interactive. I think older kids would enjoy it. (10+). There is some for the little ones but they may get bored. Really... More

Lots of history about the music scene in Vienna, many composers and a lot of AWESOME artifacts from their time. The history is mixed with a science them in the upper levels of the museum. You learn about sound, the ear and how we hear as well. Definitely worth a visit. Member of ASTC if you belong to another museum... More

If you have the touts outside outside St.Stephans Cathedral ask you to buy the ticket for Haus der Musik Concert, I wouldn't bother as not worth the money

I went to this museum quite late, at almost closing time. It was aesthetically pleasant, a new experience for my ears and eyes. In each of the famous 4 composer's section, you will feel as if you are taking a walk through the history of music in Vienna. Totally recommend this place.

This is a great place no matter what your age. You start by walking up the side section of the stairs which are piano keys. As to walk on each stair the note plays. You can throw dice which then plays your own waltz. There is so much to do here I don't want to take all the excitement away.... More

We came here with our kids and had a very joyful and entertaining afternoon. And we learned a lot! Plenty of interactive experiments and things to try out. But it's not an amusement park, you sometimes have to spend a few moments to understand what is happening. Plan enough time when you visit!

We visited late at night as after 8:30pm you can enter for a reduced price. We weren't sure what to expect but we pleasantly surprised by the interactive exhibits. Definitely aimed towards children as well as adults. Not everything worked but that didn't bother us as it was extremely enjoyable and we learnt a lot about music both in Vienna... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
