The museum takes you through the development of the State Opera. Amazing that such people as Brahms and Strauss were once in charge; great to learn about the world's best conductors performing there; but most of all it tells you about the singers.
Free entry with ticket for opera house tour. Only small museum covers opera directors, singers, costumes, photos of opera house after bombing and during reconstruction. Can spend a short or long time there but 30 minutes gives good overview.

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.
