Museums Quartier Wien - once the home of emperors stables and couch-houses - is now one of the largest cultural centers all over the world. There were 20 years long debates on building the center constructed in the baroque building of the stable. Finally the parties agreed, and the baroque character of the imperial stables is mixed with puritanically simple modern buildings such as the white lime stone cube of Leopold Museum and the dark gray basalt block of Ludwig Foundation Modern Art Museum make up a wonderful and many-sided complex offering a unique sight. Extremely much (more than 20 cultural) institutions are here, with a range from fine arts museum and film, theater, dance art, architecture, new media and creative children training centers to shops, cafés and restaurants serving the guests.

Main cultural institutes of Museums Quartier:

  • Leopold Museum - The material of Austrian art in the Leopold collection consisting of more than 5.000 pieces was collected by Rudolf Leopold in a period of more than five decades. Theexhibition is situated on five floors in the building. One of its biggest treasures is the Egon Schiele collection (on the second floor) which is the largest all over the world, together with several paintings in expressionist style and paintings from Austria between the two world wars.

  • ZOOM Kindermuseum - This institute vibrating with life introduces the young visitors from on the age of early childhood up to the age of 12 to the world of museums in a non-traditional way. Its goal is to help children in discovering and learning cultural knowledge in a playful way. While adults learn the mysteries of ZOOM Lab, the young may dive in ZOOM Ocean, accompanied by their parents.

  • Ludwig Foundation Modern Art Museum (MUMOK) - Mumok gives home to one of the largest modern and contemporary art exhibition in Europe. These trends are from a range from American pop art, photo realism, fluxus, nouveau réalism to Vienna actionism, arte povera, and conceptional and minimalist art, but we can meet with pieces of the contemporary Middle and Eastern European art as well. The galleries on five floors (two of them are underground levels) are arranged in a historical and chronological line.

  • Tabakmuseum - This permanent exhibition shows us the extension and development of tobacco culture from 1492 to its economical significance in our days. We can see also curiosities here, such as smoking sets, snuff-boxes, old pipes and cigarette boxes.

  • Kunsthalle Wien - This unexpected looking, red brick building dedicated to innovativeness and creativity is the No. 1. exhibition room of international and contemporary art, at the same time it is the most significant forum in the city which offers a home for interdisciplinaristic branches of art (experimenting architecture, video, photography, film and media art).

  • Architekturzentrum Wien - The exhibition located here is about the thematical and structural abundance of the 20th century architecture. Its goal is to introduce architecture to the public through showing new architectural compositions. This permanent exhibition is completed by temporary exhibitions which introduce modern architecture in architecture history connections four - six times in a year.
