The House of Music is a multi-media world of experience. Experimentation is called for here: visitors paint sounds with their fingers and direct the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Geniuses such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss are presented with original music scores, programs, costumes and personal items. On the top floor of the Sound Museum, the Restaurant Huth offers fine Austrian cuisine with a wonderful view over the rooftops of Vienna.
