Kunsthistorisches Museum

The Kunsthistorisches Museum, also known as the “Fine Art Museum” is home to an array of ancient Egyptian and Greek art. The museum is the largest art house in the country and was opened by, and funded by, Emperor Franz Joseph I in 1891.

Collections and exhibitions

Permanent collections include works of the Habsburgs, Ferdinand of Tirol and Emperor Rudolph II. There’s also plenty of rotating temporary exhibitions year round which has previously included stone and bronze statue works and contemporary art pieces.


If you’re wanting to delve a little deeper into art history, or simply want a little help while exploring the museum, why not join a guided tour? Alternatively, if you’re interested in learning about the ancient Egyptians, classical Gods or the Holy Roman Empire in a little more detail a private tour might be for you.
