House of Music (Haus der Musik) is a modern, interactive museum dedicated to sound and music, and located in Vienna's first district. Spread out over several floors, visitors are invited to playfully make new discoveries and music, and to actively participate in the museum's exhibits.
The House of Music was awarded the Austrian Museum Prize for its innovative design and is located in the former Palais of Archduke Charles. At one time the Palais was the residence of Otto Nicolai (1810 - 1849), who composed the opera "The Merry Wives of Windsor" and founded the Vienna Philharmonic concerts here.
A total of 5000 square meters has been set aside exclusively for areas dedicated to a wide array of approaches to music, and most of all, the experience of music.
Mozarthaus Vienna is a new center devoted to the life and works of Mozart including the historical apartment.
Domgasse 5 is the only one of Mozart's apartments that still exists today. The composer lived in Mozarthaus Vienna from 1784 to 1787 in grand style, with four large rooms, two small ones and a kitchen. The life and works of this musical genius are presented here on four exhibition levels.
In addition to Mozart's apartment, which has been adapted by Wien Museum, visitors can find out about the times in which Mozart lived and his most important works. The exhibition focuses on his years in Vienna, which marked a high point in his creativity.
Both museums do not have to be visited on the same day as the ticket is valid for one entry to each museum within one year.
Departure Point: Haus der Musik is located in the former Palais Archduke Charles, in the center of Vienna between St. Stephen's Cathedral and the State Opera.
Mozarthaus Vienna is located at 5 Domgasse in the center of Vienna, approximately 8 minutes on foot from St. Stephen's Cathedral.
