In Spring 2015, the long-established Johann Strauss Museum in Vienna's Praterstrasse gained its most serious rival in the form of the 'Museum of the Strauss Dynasty'. I'd visited the city-run Praterstrasse museum on a few occasions, but always found the scope of its contents somewhat...More

I am not a particular fan of Strauss but we visited the museum anyway. There wasn't really much to see but some old photos, a piano and the apartment he lived in. Yes, you could listen to his music as well with ear phones. Didn't...More

The museum of the Strauss dynasty is small, but I was impressed by the prints (many were period originals) and artwork providing context to the composers' work and lives. I got there right before closing time, and I wish I had spent more time there....More

This museum is a relatively new addition to Vienna (it only opened last year) and chronicles the whole Strauss family. You can tell that the collection has been lovingly put together with a lot of insight into the family. The exhibits are all curated in...More

One of the best composer museums. We didn't get a tour (the tour that was on when we were there was in German) but the museum head took a minute out of the tour to show us how everything worked. Each room is full of...More

I can only underscore the previous reviews. We had a tour by Mag. Professor Reichenauer. He is superb -- a wealth of knowledge. And, he tells the Strauss family story with passion. Other than the music (which you hear samples of), he describes the different...More
