The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Great place for children as well as adults
    I have been in Vienna for four days and have been fighting huge crowds at every tourist attraction. Someone suggested that I go to The House of Music. This museum is conveniently located close to city center and is housed in an older building, but the interior is refurbished in very modern style. The displays are very interesting and show memorabilia of the Vienna Symphony and the maestros who led it. There are also individual displays of Austrian composers such as Haydn and Mozart. This is a great place to take children as there are many interactive educational displays.

    Educational visit wrapped up in fun!
    We were there on a quiet day and did not have to wait long for any of the interactive activities. The musical staircase was great, conducting the symphony well done but “writing” your own score took a bit of figuring out. You roll each of 4 dice 4 times until you get a check mark for each one. Then the activity will play your composition for you. It will be numbered and you have the option of purchasing the resultant sheet music before you leave. There was another opportunity to purchase the music you created a little later on. The displays were beautifully done and held the interest of young and old alike

    Music could be really fun
    This museum was a big surprise for me. Absolutely amazingly presented theme of the music! At the entrance, there is a staircase, part of which is a keyboard, so when you walk up it, the individual keys make sounds. The museum is not only full of exhibits related to the greats of classical music, but there are also many interactive elements. The automaton will compose W.A. Mozart-style music for you based on your name. By rolling virtual dice, you "compose" your own waltz. You can try conducting the Vienna Philharmonic. You can even take home recipes of Ludwig van Beethoven's favorite dishes.

    Interaction and information. Fun for all the family.
    Really good interactive museum. Had so much fun starting with walking up the musical stairs and later virtually conducting the Vienna Philharmonic! For musical history buffs there was a section with a whole room devoted to each composer with a link to Vienna. My non-musical partner enjoyed it as much as I did.

Wonderful interactive experience for all ages - I had as much fun on musical stairs as kids did! When creating music, you were given the option of purchasing a print out on your way out. Conducting the orchestra was worth waiting for and would likely be a big hit with the younger set. Informative and well organized, well worth a visit.

This place was phenomenal, a real hidden gem. We were on a tour with a very well informed guide, and no one had ever heard of this place. We made our way on our own and were absolutely amazed. Lots of hands on things to do related to sound and music, as well as very informative exhibits. Well worth a visit. Suitable for all ages and musical tastes.

A great place. The orchestra conducting experience is really fun, and altogether it's worth it (used a Vienna pass for it).

Great place to explore, learn, and enjoy. Lots of history to read and experience, especially composers. And the interactive rooms were fabulous: even the one where you can be the conductor!
We did not know what to expect and we were totally thrilled with the experience and with the staff. And this was the least costly of all of our experiences. Go and enjoy.

A hidden prize. We loved our trip there. So much to do, and a great visit with our 5 year old. Loved the coat check so we could leave our stuff and travel unencumbered

We visited the museum in May 2023 as a family with a 3 year old daughter and enjoyed it a lot. Although not too big, it is very well thought with plenty of interesting things and interactive activities both for adults and children. We had a great time, it would be great if all major cities had original museums suitable for the entire family.
