ABOUT HAUS DER MUSIK
Haus der Musik is a modern interactive experimental museum right in the heart of Vienna, the City of music. It was here in the former Palais of Archduke Charles, where Otto Nicolai, the founder of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, resided when he established the world famous orchestra. Today visitors can marvel at precious documents and mementos from the orchestra’s history at the Museum of the Vienna Philharmonic. Further four floors are dedicated to the presentation of the fascinating world of music and sound: compose your own waltz with a throw of the dice, test your talent as a conductor and face the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra or experiment yourself with sound, noises and instruments.
Take a journey through time into the world of the great masters of the Wiener Klassik: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss, Mahler and Schönberg- all of them are introduced in their contemporary environment on the history level through historic documents, models, costumes, modern installations and personal items.
In addition to the permanent exhibition, we present the temporary show „Vienna and New York: 175 Years of Two Philharmonics“ celebrating the founding of the New York and Vienna Philharmonic in 1842 (on show at the foyer until 14 January 2018). It will be followed by a special exhibition on the musical age of Viennese Modernism (Mid January 2018). The special exhibition on the renowned composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein, starting in October 2018, will focus on his successfull collaboration with the Vienna Philharmonic.
