Kunsthistorisches Museum

The Kunsthistorisches Museum, also known as the Museum of History, has been one of the most important museums in Vienna, Austria since it opened in 1891. The collection of historical paintings and portraits is housed inside of a festive palatial building located on Ringstrasse that is recognizable for the octagonal domes that crown its roofline. Most of the collection came from the Hapsburg royal family and the Kunsthistorisches Museum was originally commissioned by the Emperor to bring the extensive collection to the public. Since then citizens of Vienna have enjoyed works by the likes of Raphael and Pieter Brueghel.

  • See ancient Egyptian history come to life in the Egyptian and Near Eastern Collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, location of one of Vienna’s top artefacts, a statue of Thutmose III.
  • Come face to face with the celebrated works of Gustav Klimt on the Klimt Bridge of the Main Staircase, where you can get a close look at Vienna’s most famous painter.
  • Check out the Coin Cabinet, an elaborate collection of ancient coins from around the world that shows the fascinating history of money.

Kunsthistorisches Museum is very close to the city centre of Vienna and can be easily reached by public transportation. The Museumsquartier and Volkstheater stations of the subway are the closest to the museum and there is also a stop for the tram within walking distance. The bus stops at the Burgring/Kunthistorisches Museum station that is just outside of the building. Parking is limited at the museum, especially on the weekends, so be sure to plan ahead and arrive early. The museum is only 18 kilometres from the Vienna International Airport and there are shuttles to the city centre.
