  • We absolutely enjoyed seeing symphonies of Mozart being performed at the house of music. The performances were stellar and the tickets were worth 35Euros..the auditorium is very small.we saw this when there were no performances at the Vienna state opera. However, if there are shows at Vienna Opera House you can get standing balcony tickets for as less as 4 euros. That would be a more preferred choice
  • Fabulous place. Several fun and interactive displays. What a great place to go for every age. Though we shared our visit with several dozens of kids we mostly were able to enjoy the exhibits without too much distraction. Be sure to include this Museum when you visit Vienna.
