Description

The rather boring exterior of this museum does not in any way reflect its contents. Its time of construction was, rather clearly, after World War II. The subject matter of its special exhibitions is always specifically Viennese, with connected themes, and these exhibitions are recommended to visitors. The collection in the museum shows a detailed summary of the development of Vienna from its beginning in prehistoric times to the present, all illustrated by plans, maps and artifacts. Important Viennese personalities such as Adolf Loos or Franz Grillparzer; paintings by Klimt, Schiele, and Biedermeier painter Waldmüller make the tour through three floors very interesting.
