Austrian Museum of Traditional and Popular Arts - Vienna


The Austrian Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions takes pride of place among the great European cultural museums. It brings together unique collections concerning old Austrian popular culture, and those of its neighbouring countries. The ground floor exhibition presents an overview of popular culture before the modern era, and outlines the treasures in the museum. It was founded in 1895 by Michael Haberlandt and Wilhelm Hein, civil servants from the prehistoric-ethnographic department of the Naturhistorisches Museum. The collections that you can admire here take in all aspects of the old Austro-Hungarian empire, as well as objects from other European regions.
