Theatre Museum in Lobkowitz Palace - Vienna


The Theatermuseum is in the Lobkowitz palace, but from an organisational point of view, it is part of the KHM. The Lobkowitz Palace is one of the oldest palaces in Vienna, and its façade, in contrast to the interior, has been conserved in its original state. The museum was originally part of the theatre collection in the national Austrian library, which dates from the Baroque era. The collection was extended after the purchase of the Hugo Thimig collection in 1923, and further in 1938 when Stefan Zweig donated his manuscripts to the museum, before fleeing from the national-socialists. Do not miss the Eroicasaal, where the 3rd and 4th Beethoven symphonies were first performed. In total, the museum has more than 1000 set, 600 costumes and accessories from the last 3 centuries! What’s more, you can admire more than 700,000 theatrical photos, 100,000 drawing and graphics and another little bonus- in the library you will find 80,000 books and journals on the theme of theatre!
