HAUS DER MUSIK is located in the former palace of Archduke Carl (1771 - 1847) in the Seilerstätte in the 1st district. Since the year 2000, the newly renovated building has been home to HAUS DER MUSIK, an interactive experience museum on the subjects of music, Viennese Classicism and sound/sound phenomena. The motif worlds revolve around classical Viennese architecture (magnificent staircase, belletage with Vienna Philharmonic Museum), museum rooms with objects on famous classical composers to modern museum design on the topics of sound production (Science Walls). Interactive games such as the Virtual Conductor or the Stairplay Sound Staircase and the innovative virtual reality laboratory Sonotopia, which was only opened in 2020, are worthy of special mention. The attic level with an event room with stage and a 2-storey event area with bar completes the classic museum operation.
Since 2006 the Vienna Open Lab in the 3rd district successfully provides insight into the fascinating world of research. Nestled in the research environment of the Campus Vienna Biocenter the Vienna Open Lab offers an authentic laboratory atmosphere. The two available laboratory spaces (77m2 and 104m2) are equipped with modern analyzers and basic molecular biological and chemical equipment. In addition, one of the laboratories has a 10m2 preparation room.
