About Kunsthistorisches Museum

Established in 1891 under Emperor Franz Joseph I, the Kunsthistorisches Museum houses a variety of art pieces by masters like Rembrandt and Vermeer.

Why visit Kunsthistorisches Museum?

Did you know?
  • The Klimt brothers’ frescoes: Gustav Klimt, along with his brother Ernst Klimt, were commissioned to create frescoes for the museum's grand staircase. However, Gustav's unconventional and avant-garde style clashed with the museum's conservative tastes, leading to controversy and criticism.
  • The Kunstkammer Cabinet: The Kunsthistorisches Museum's Kunstkammer Wien, or Chamber of Art and Wonders, houses an extraordinary collection of curiosities and rarities collected by the Habsburgs over centuries. Among its treasures are intricate mechanical automata, exotic natural specimens, and precious objects from around the world.
  • The Mystery of the Cellini Salt Cellar: One of the museum’s most famous artifacts is the Cellini Salt Cellar, a masterpiece of Renaissance goldsmithing crafted by Benvenuto Cellini in the 16th century. In 2003, the salt cellar was stolen from the museum but was miraculously recovered three years later buried in a forest in Austria.
  • The Habsburg Connection: This museum was established by Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria-Hungary to house the extensive art collections of the Habsburg dynasty. The museum's collections reflect the tastes and interests of the Habsburg rulers, who were passionate collectors and patrons of the arts.
  • Sigmund Freud’s connection to the museum: The Kunsthistorisches Museum has an unexpected connection to the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. Freud was a frequent visitor to the museum, finding solace and inspiration in its collections during his tumultuous life in Vienna. He often cited the museum as a source of aesthetic pleasure and intellectual stimulation.

A painting I always wanted to see was there. It was a suprise and made my day. Besides that the museum is very very good and housed in a Palace of a building. We loved it.
