Vienna’s House of Music in Mexico
Vienna’s House of Music Museum is being replicated in the Mexican city of Puebla.
Just like the original, the ‘copycat’ museum in the Central American country will feature programmes and exhibitions about classical and contemporary music.
One of these features will be the interactive ‘virtual director’ exhibit, which allows visitors to try their hand at “conducting” the Vienna Philharmonic – a digital version that is.
At the end of the performance, the conductor is rewarded with applause if it was good or jeers if it wasn’t.
The opening date of the museum in Mexico has not been decided yet although it will be housed in a former textile factory in the city.
