This museum would probably get a higher rating if the information signs was in english and if the basement didn't smell like mold (you could actually see it in the ceiling). There was a lot of interesting material (I think...) but you only got a...More

Awful museum. Totally unsuitable for Non-German speakers as everything was in German. They made you buy a very boring 'English Guide' which was clearly just translated on Google! The exhibits look like they could have been made by children. 100% unsuitable for wheelchair users/disabled people....More

I can't believe the negative reviews by people who complain about the captions being in German. Er, this is a small, privately-run museum on an obviously limited budget in a German-speaking city. If you want English captions stay in Britain, America or wherever your insular...More

THE GOOD: 1. Very fascinating material: The museum has an extensive collection of crime evidence, newspaper clippings, replicas, weapons and information. In cases, you will find weapons of torture and punishment from the 1500s. Skulls, skeletons and mummified heads of criminals are in glass cases....More

This museum has several sections with a huge amount of information of criminal cases, news reports, photographs, objects and even skulls. Although there are some bits translated into English, most of the stories of true crimes are not which is a shame because from the...More

Very interesting museum,obviously a bit different. Staff helpful. Could do with a bit more English literature so you can read a bit more info in the pictures on display . Would recommend a visit if in area.

So, you don't speak German. Deal with it, you are not at home anymore. The museum has put some highlights into English and rest of it, well, they say a picture says a thousand words and it is certainly true. If you get stuck, whip...More

Somehow the musem does not establish the statement ""NOT FOR FAINT HEARTS"". Ya.. it displays loads of black and white pictures and more pictures as one walks past the cold, damp, alleys of the cramped spaces which the museum proudly describes as halls A, B,...More

I like that this place is not too crowded with tourists, however most of the explanations of the different exhibits are only in German - about 80%. You do get a pamphlet in e.g. English that roughly explains the different ages, but the individual stories...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
