About Haus der Musik
Haus der Musik is a modern interactive experience museum in the heart of Vienna, the city of music. It was here, in the former Palace 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.
Three more floors are dedicated to the presentation of the fascinating world of music and sound: visitors can compose their own waltz with a throw of the dice, test their talent as a conductor and face the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra or experiment with sound and noise in the brand new signature installation Sonotopia Lab & Universe.
The sound museum also lets its visitors take a journey through time into the world of the great masters of the First Viennese School: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss, Mahler and Schönberg – all of them are presented within the context of their time through historic documents, models, costumes, modern installations and personal items.
In addition to the permanent exhibition, Haus der Musik presents temporary exhibitions that focus on music-historical themes or contemporary developments in the world of music.
