Interesting and free

This museum was interesting and very informative about the history of the opera, particularly the State Opera House in Vienna. Worth going to!

It's a 2 because the place was overcrowded with elbow to elbow throngs of tour groups. The line was long 30 minutes before ticket opening time. Probably would have enjoyed it better without the chaos. Interior was impressive only in certain areas (the auditorium, the grand staircase). Watched the stage props team test various scenes. Exterior needed cleaning desperately. Movies... More

I told my friend that our experience of Vienna will not be complete without attending a concert in the Weiner Staatsoper. We bought tickets for the last day of the Weiner Mozart Konzerte, and although we had awful seats, we enjoyed the music, the humour and the fantastic place.

There were several tours to the opera, we missed one in Russian language and had to listen to an English one. We' ve learned a lot about history of that magic place, managed to seat on the orchestra chairs, to see the scene from inside, to make a lot of wonderful photos. Since then I have one more dream -...

The museum takes you through the development of the State Opera. Amazing that such people as Brahms and Strauss were once in charge; great to learn about the world's best conductors performing there; but most of all it tells you about the singers. We had a special interest in the tenor Alfred Piccaver (at the Opera from 1912-1938). The knowledgeable... More

Free entry with ticket for opera house tour. Only small museum covers opera directors, singers, costumes, photos of opera house after bombing and during reconstruction. Can spend a short or long time there but 30 minutes gives good overview.

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
