If you are a fan of the film or if you are interested in the history of Vienna in the first half of the 20th century this is a must see. The museum is only open on Saturday from 2 to 6pm so plan your visit carefully. If you haven't seen the film, do so before you go,otherwise the film background documents and photos will mean very little. It is a quirky museum filled with every detail the enthusiastic curator could find - and I do mean every detail! The room dedicated to the history of Vienna's role in the Second World War is a real eye-opener. Allow at least 2 hours.

This was a must see for us as my wife had studied the movie in her final year of high school and we watched the movie in the fortnight prior to our trip. The museum did not disappoint! It's a superb collection of movie memorabilia and had a very informative section on post-war Vienna. What made it even more special was meeting Gerhard, the owner and creator of the museum, and his wife and talking to him about his passion for the movie and city. Would recommend going but make sure you watch the movie first! :-)

Friendly and personal insight into this movie and historically interesting time in Vienna. Great for movie buffs ( and those who are not ! ), and anyone interested in the Cold War era. Amazing collection of movie and music artifacts associated with the Third Man Movie. It'll be a while before you get the tune out of your head !

For fans of the movie, a great collection of memorabilia. Movie posters in many languages. Short bios of the stars and some insights into the making of the movie.

A very extensive exhibit of post-war Vienna, from the point of view of Austrians and of American soldiers.

7.50 Euro for adults. Not really suitable for children, who won't understand a film in black and white.

Free toilet.

Not very accessible for folks with mobility issues.

Open one afternoon per week.
