Virtual Conductor in Vienna Austria © www.hdm.at
The House of Music is an interactive, high-tech discovery museum devoted to music and is located in the former Palais of Archduke Charles. Four floors take visitors past the music and memorabilia of the great composers who lived in Vienna, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Schubert, and allow visitors to discover the top musicians of today, as well as explore the future of music on computers. Visitors can conduct an orchestra, listen to what an unborn child hears in the womb, or paint a musical picture. The museum was awarded top prize for its innovative design and allows visitors to experience music using the senses of sight, sound, touch and hearing. A glorious combination of fun and education!
