Virtual Conductor – The Travelling Exhibition

The Virtual Conductor goes on tour.

Haus der Musik presents the „Virtual Conductor“ – the interactive Highlight at the Sound Museum with more than 3 Million visitors – as a special and unique travelling exhibition to be used at events worldwide.


Haus der Musik is the first Austrian museum to have signed an international license agreement, allowing for the creation of an interactive music museum based on the Viennese model.

The interactive music museum “Casa de la Música de Viena en Puebla” is located in the capital of the Mexican state Puebla, about 130km southeast of Mexico City, and was inaugurated in January 2015.
