Dedicated to a 1948 film starring Orson Welles, 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.

The Third Man Museum is a unique and one-of-a-kind museum. Karin and Gerhard have created a real gem of a museum. Hundreds of photos, posters and many special exhibits about the film and Austria in the post-war period. We travelled all the way from Chicago to visit this privately run museum and it was more than worth it. I would give it six stars if I could. The passion that has been put into this project is outstanding.
If you love the film and are curious about the history of Vienna this is a must! You can see how much love and dedication the founders put in to create the best possible experience for visitors. I was very impressed by the incredible collection. Highly recommend a visit!
