    This was one of the best museums I have ever visited (and I have visited them in New York, Moscow, London, Berlin, Stockholm, Hong Kong etc). 50% discount for 20-22 but 2 hours is really not enough.

    Totally amazing place that can make you feel like a child. The best two hours since long time ago :) Lots of virtual games, you can act as performer, make your own music, etc. It's a gem!!

    An absolute “must do” (especially with kids) is a visit to Haus der Musik museum – the house of music. It is an interactive museum and there are plenty of experiments to try that are lots of fun

    In the musical adventure world in the heart of the city, music can be experienced with all of the senses. Giant instruments, computers and electronics are great for experimenting and discovering.

    A museum of two halves: the story of sound vs the classical back catalogue of Vienna. Depends what you fancy 🎼

    There is a huge focus on interactivity, lots of terminals with headphones and Kinects, and they are mostly boring/poorly working. Android App is unusable.
