Firstly, I like very much the movie. Secondly, my grandfather was an officer in Red Army and served around 2 years in Vienna just after the WW2. In Museum there are so many pictures and artefacts about post-war Vienna that I begin to understand these...More

Thank you very much for visiting us and for the review! Did your grandfather keep some memorabilia, letters, photos, documents of his Vienna time? Or maybe friends of him? Our email is contact@3mpc.net Many greetings, Gerhard

Incredibly detailed museum. Fans of the movie will love it but even non-fans will get alot out of room 3 which is more generally about war-time Vienna. I lost one of the glass pieces of my glasses here. If you find it let me know!

This charming private museum is a great contrast to the palaces, art and music and shopping of Vienna. Housed in three different buildings it gives you amongst other things the background to the filming of The Third Man - actors, sets, music, etc The impact...More

For fans of The Third Man film, this is obviously a must-see. But half the museum is devoted to an overview of the history of Vienna 1934-1955, as it went through political strife, Nazi takeover, Allied bombing, and post-war occupation. Photographs of such iconic sites...More

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a
dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and
