Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Informative and welcoming
May 2019
we found this by chance when visiting Vienna . We had a nice chat with an English speaking intern from former Yugoslavia and were shown the stories of peacemakers we had never heard of but who have done wonderful and courageous things. The peace museum also does reconciliation work Well worth the visit, despite being small as it is near other sites like Mozart's house.

Watch for Windows for Peace around the museum
Oct 2017 • Couples
I was following a self-directed walking tour that took me down a side street, and although not mentioned in the guide, I noticed a number of street level windows with photos and descriptions of peace activists and leaders around the world; one drew my attention to early local pacifist, Bertha von Suttner, who not only encouraged Alfred Nobel to add a Peace Prize to the list of annual Nobel prizes to be awarded, but won one herself a few years later. The museum itself is really just a one-room office with more peace profiles on the walls and some t-shirts for sale. When I visited a volunteer invited my partner and I to compete a short questionnaire, mainly asking what peace means to us. Back outside, it’s unfortunate vandals have spray painted over some of the “Windows for Peace” — hopefully the museum can clean up the windows or move some of the profiles to new windows, we need to be reminded that striving for peace is something we need to work at.

tiny hidden interetsing museum
Aug 2016 • Family
we stumbled across this little hidden museum on our way to the Mozarthaus and had a quick look. It brought about many memories about my former work for the UN human rights pogramme - as I know or had worked with quite a few of the messengers of peace whose photographs adorn the walls of the museum. The Japanese intern explained a few interesting things to us.... well worht a quick visit.

Hidden gem in Vienna´s inner city
Jul 2016 • Friends
This was a pretty small museum, but the service was nice. It was actually free (although donation is welcomed), and there was a staff that was really helpful. The exposition consists of people who live for peace. We had a great discussion about peace in general. The staff also gave us an advice on where to visit and eat in Vienna. She is not Austrian but has lived in Vienna for a long time, so she provided us a proper advice from tourists´ perspectives.Thanks to her, we were able to enjoy Vienna in a cheaper way.

Peace Museum Vienna
Mar 2016
A Museum thats located in the heart of Vienna, in the „Innere Stadt“. It is right beside the Mozart House. It has a lot to offer; peace kitchens, concerts and lot of other events. All the information about peace that you want to know! Its open every day from 10h till 18:00h. A very ineresting aspect of the Museum are its „Windows for peace“ project. Windows for peace is a project where you can „visit“ the museum even when it is closed. Because outside of the PMV building, on the windows, you can find photos of various peace heroes and learn about their lives and achievments. The main idea is not only the cultural aspect of the museum but also the educational. We think its very impotant to educate the visitors, groups, school classes a quality peace education. The museum consists of two parts; the outside yard, where various events are being held, and the inside of the museum. Inside the PMV you can see a lot of peace heroes that are part of our permanent exposition. The Museum's guides will happily respond to all your questions and queries. Once in interior of the museum there are the moving pictures borrowed by the Hiroshima Peace Museum, Japan. The pictures, as part of our itinerant exposition, are also playing a big role because trough their art they are simbolizing peace. The Museum has a free entrance however the visitor can purchase various peace related souvenirs to help the Museum's peace projects.
I would totally recommend everyone to come and visit the PMV, while enjoying your holidays in Vienna.
