If you love The Third Man and are interested in its historical background, this is for you. It was for me. But if not, not. I seem to remember it says something like this on the entrance! The historical bit was a good antidote to too much uncritical admiration of the Hapsburgs that I got elsewhere in Vienna. It's a... More

Or post-war Vienna for that matter. It's a family-run affair over most of the ground floor and basement of an apartment block. Masses of material on the film, the musician behind the distinctive soundtrack and Vienna in the final months of the war and aftermath. You'll learn some interesting snippets about the film - not least that it is not... More

Two of the four of our group enjoyed this museum. Lots of stuff to see from the film. It was not my thing at all- but I can see why film buffs might be into it.

If you're a film buff, you must visit the Third Man Museum. It has some very interesting items on display relating to this film: posters, autographed pictures of the movie's stars, some of the zithers used by Anton Karas, who composed the movie's theme. As well, you'll find a place where you can listen to some of the 400+ cover... More

I just spent two days in Vienna, and I loved all of it. If you ever have a chance to see Vienna, you definitely should go there. And this museum should be near the top of your list of things to do while visiting this beautiful city. The museum is privately owned and operated, with many items being donated or... More

This is a must see museum. It is 100% private, run by very friendly, passionate individuals. The movie is in itself very good & very interesting, showing Vienna right after the war, split in the 4 zones. The thriller is well built, the music enchanting & the last scene shot in the city sewage truly fascinating. The museum has thousands... More

Super mix of Third Man and Vienna post 1930. Loads of documents and photos pertaining to both. This private museum, in a quiet part of the city with some good small bars and restaurants, as well as being just a few minutes away from the bustling Naschmarkt, is a credit to the enthusiastic owners (and assistant!) and ought not to...

The film is very old now. The museum recreates the ambiance of the Vienna times right after the second world war, as well as the movie. It is an interesting visit that changes from visiting museums and churches.

For Gerhard and Karin, this is a hobby that has turned into an "obsession" and we are the fortunate recipients. They have acquired an incredible collection of memorabilia (Trevor Howard's script, original movie posters). Gerhard's plethora of interesting stories (how Anton Kara was chosen to do the music, insight into the actors behavior during filming, David O. Selznick's micromanagement from... More
