The Museum of the Johann Strauss Dynasty is the first in the world to encompass the family background and the musical activities of the full Strauss Dynasty (Johann Strauss Father, Johann Strauss Son, Josef Strauss and Eduard Strauss). An abundance of historic materials and documents brilliantly illustrate the role which Strauss-music played in social and political affairs, from Vienna´s so-called Biedermeier era, the 1848-revolution and leading into the development period of the 1870s and 1880s when the noble Ringstraße set the tone for expansion of the city as centre of European culture and the operetta phenomenon.
You will find audio stations with full-fidelity headphones offering you a choice of titles from many Strauss family compositions, both familiar and less known. Sit back and enjoy undisturbed the selected musical works which the museum´s displays further explain.
We announce proudly that the "British Guild of Travel Writers" in London has conferred award to our museum as "Best European Tourism Project 2016".
The museum´s rooms feature 14 themes which can be explored in detail together with musical examples via the audio
