The Third Man Museum shows a vast array of original exhibits relating to the international film classic "The Third Man", filmed in 1948 in Vienna.
The museum is THE place to go not only for film fans but also for all those interested in the pre- and postwar history of Vienna. An extensive exhibition within the museum explains the historical backdrop of the film and shows many original documents from the period.
The Third Man Museum is the project of two enthusiasts: Gerhard Strassgschwandtner and Karin Höfler.
Specialists and generalists, we have created the museum ourselves from scratch, including the basic concept, design, realisation, marketing, catalogues, web presence and, of course, the welcoming of all our many visitors. A completely rounded piece of work, with no outsourcing, the Third Man Museum contains much heart and soul. And you can feel it!
13 rooms, 2000 original exhibits and documents, 400 cover versions of the "Harry Lime Theme", the zither used by Anton Karas to record the film music, original scripts, cameras, , a short screening with a projector from the time, the cap of Little Hansel and much more...
This a living collection that grows and grows. Please visit us from time to time on this website or in the museum to see what's new.
