    We arranged for a tour of the Third Man Museum as well as a private full day walking tour of Vienna with Gerhard during our free day there, and had a wonderful time that we'll never forget! The depth and breadth of Gerhard's Third Man movie paraphernalia, as well as his knowledge of the intrigues of postwar Vienna, are truly amazing. Gerhard is friendly, honest and engaging. However he is not afraid to discuss the treatment of Jews during that time, and part of the museum's exhibits deals with that sad topic in a sensitive but clear way. During our private walking tour Gerhard took us to see the newly renovated Judenplatz Museum, the Hapsburgs' Imperial Crypt, and many other off-the-beaten track sights. Of course we stopped for strudel and coffee at an authentic Viennese coffee house as well. If you plan to be in Vienna we highly recommend visiting the Third Man Museum and perhaps taking a walking tour of Vienna with Gerhard. A unique and rewarding experience.

    Gerhard is passionate about what he believes in. I could tell he put so much into this museum and his enthusiasm shows. Could not help but support his cause.

    Nous étions enchantés et très émus de voir une collection aussi riche sur le film et sur l'histoire de Vienne. Si vous connaissez le film, vous allez revivre les moments et l'atmosphère du film - Si vous n'avez jamais entendu parler du film, vous devez vous y rendre pour mieux saisir et comprendre l'histoire de Vienne. Bravo aux propriétaires de cette collection qui dédient leur temps et partage cette fabuleuse collection. MICHEL ET CLAUDIE

    Great fun. Guide was full bilingual (I guessed Australian- no Austrian!) Excellent n atmospheric section on the film and excellent section on most post war Vienna, some wartime Vienna. Clip from the film was hard to hear (poor audio) but again atmospheric old timey feel. I’ve seen n appreciated the movie. I give the museum 5 stars. My wife doesn’t recall seeing the movie but still gives museum 4 stars.

    私設博物館なのに展示物のクオリティがすご い。 展示物の量も多くて映画好きには必見。 博物館の後にもう一度映画が見たくなった。 オーナーの奥さんは日本語もできるので案内 してもらった。土曜の午後のみ。団体だと要 予約で別の曜日でも大丈夫だとか。

    Das Museum ist ein Muss für alle, die den Film lieben und/oder sich für die Geschichte Wiens interessieren. Die Gründer haben unglaublich viel Liebe und Recherchearbeit in das Museum gesteckt. Und das zeigt sich in einer super coolen, interessanten Besuchererfahrung mit Infos rund um den Film, zu den Stars, den Dreharbeiten und über Wien vor/während/nach der Kriegszeit. Mein Freund und ich waren beeindruckt und begeistert.

    The museum captures the excellence of a film that I originally saw as a child and have enjoyed many times over 70 years. The rooms cleverly surrounds the visitor with the Vienna associated with the film. We visited as part of a particularly special birthday holiday in Vienna. Very recommended.

    Es una experiencia increíble! Para todos los fanáticos del cine, hay una sorpresa al final del tour. Que no quiero spoilear! Gerd and Karin son súper afables! Sin lugar a duda, un museo en el corazón de Vienna que vale la pena visitar

    Unglaubliche Sammlung an zeitgeschichtlichen Dokumenten. Man fühlt sich direkt in die Nachkriegszeit zurück versetzt, wozu auch die Räumlichkeiten im Souterrain und Ihre Gestaltung sehr beitragen. Ich bin immer wieder von der Sammlung, die mit viel Liebe zusammengetragen wird und auch ständig wächst begeistert.

    What a special and interesting experience. Not only about the movie, which I recommend to see before (but it's not required), but about Vienna in the 20th Century, from before WW2 to some decades later. True documental evidence and memorabilia about those years, and knowledge I found unique and memorable. I have been to many museums in Vienna, and seeing The Third Man Museum, in hindsight, made a more indelible memory, because more than a run of the mill museum for my collection of tourist visits in all the great cities, this feels like a labor of love and becomes so unique, and memorable. It is not large in extension but it is all very condensed, so be prepared to take your time, move slowly, and taste all the different nuances that you are being shown... while this lasts, because I don't know how they can make it sustainable with this price...
