The THIRD MAN MUSEUM is the project of two enthusiasts: Gerhard
Strassgschwandtner and Karin Höfler. Specialists and generalists, they have
created the museum themselves from scratch. A completely rounded piece of
work, with no outsourcing, the Third Man Museum contains much heart and soul.
And you can feel it!
To enable you to “take home” our collection, two catalogues are available in the
museum shop: The museum catalogue and the catalogue on post-war Vienna.

ORSON WELLES’ 100th BIRTHDAY !!
Special exhibition until end of 2015
Orson Welles (May 6, 1915 - Oct.10, 1985) was an American actor, director,
writer, producer and magician, who worked in theater, radio and film.
All three media were strongly influenced by his innovative work. His radio
broadcast "The War of the Worlds" (1938) caused mass panic, his film 'Citizen
Kane' (1941) consistently ranks as one of the all-time greatest films. His
appearance as "Harry Lime" in the classic film "The Third Man" shot in Vienna in
1948, achieved iconic status.
The Third Man Museum in Vienna celebrates Orson Welles' centenary with a
special exhibiton showing 250 photos, 40 posters, interviews with Oja Kodar and
Christian McKay, some nice memorabilia, and as always: Originals only!
