A total of 5,000 m2 has been set aside exclusively for areas dedicated to a wide array of approaches to music, and most of all, to the experience of music. At one time the former Palais of Archduke Charles, and today's HAUS DER MUSIK, was the residence of Otto Nicolai (1810 - 1849), who composed the opera "The Merry Wives of Windsor" and founded the Vienna Philharmonic concerts here. This connection provided the impetus for the Vienna Philharmonic, with its Historical Archive, to make HAUS DER MUSIK its new home. Here, the scientific documentation of this world-famous orchestra continues and is made available to the public.
After it opened its doors to the public, Maestro Zubin Mehta assumed HAUS DER MUSIK's honorary chairmanship. What inspired him to do so was the cheerful and direct presentation of the musical material that brings people with a wide range of music tastes together, gets them talking, grabs their interest and counteracts any preconceived notions associated with encountering music from an intellectual and musicological point of view.
The Sound Museum has been open to the public 365 days a year, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.!
