The Third Man Museum, Vienna

4.9
#16 of 116 in Museums in Vienna
Dedicated to a 1948 film starring Orson Welles, The Third Man Museum appeals to movie buffs and history enthusiasts. Shot in 1948 in Vienna, "The Third Man" originally received mixed reviews and only ran in theaters for a few weeks. Today, the film is considered a classic thanks to its evocative portrayal of a damaged city in the years immediately following World War II. The museum contains a collection of film-related artifacts, including signed photos of stars, posters, and a 1930s projector used to screen a short clip from the black-and-white movie.

  • A place created by a lover of the film Carol Reed is certain, we can not read everything but the detour is worth the shot for the moviegoers! There are even posters of the Lumière Institute of Lyon and especially in the shop 1 small book that lists all the filming locations of the film, awesome! Pity that the sewers not so far from the museum open only in May.... Attention open Museum only on Saturdays

  • What a wonderful surprise to visit this fascinating museum in Vienna. They have an incredible collection of artifacts for the movie "The Third Man" filmed in Vienna shortly after the end of the war and the extent of the destruction is real in the film. I immediately rented the movie when I go home. It is worth it to visit this museum for the movie history alone but the museum has much more including a fine collection of materials from Vienna and WWII. The photos and stories are moving and fascinating. The collections adds depth and detail to what the war and aftermath was really like as the world slipped into the cold war. A visit is well worth the time.
  • One of the most unique museums dedicated to cinema. Highly recommended!
