MuseumsQuartier Vienna

The MuseumsQuarter Wien (MQ), one of the largest culture and art complexes in the world, is a playground for culture seekers. You could spend an entire day diving into the vibrant sprawl of renowned museums, exhibition halls and art spaces.

Nearly 300 years span the period from the construction of the Imperial City Stables at the beginning of the 18th century, their later adaptation as trade fair and exhibition grounds and the official grand opening of the MuseumsQuartier in 2001.

Today, baroque buildings and contemporary architecture, cultural facilities in every shape and size representing a variety of art sectors merge and coalesce to form a scintillatingly contrasting whole.

Here is an overview of the most important museus that are part of the MQ:

Leopold Museum
The Leopold Museum is home to one of the largest collections of modern Austrian art. It is an impressive treasure trove of Viennese art nouveau, the Vienna Workshop, Classical Modernism and the Expressionist period, featuring art by Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Richard Gerstl and the world’s largest collection of masterpieces by Egon Schiele.
 
mumok
The Museum of Modern Art Foundation Ludwig, known as the mumok, is a collection of around 9,000 modern and contemporary pieces, spanning classic Modernism, Pop Art, Fluxus and Viennese Actionism to present-day film and media art. Major pieces include works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Pablo Picasso, Claes Oldenburg, Franz West, Nam June Paik, Wolf Vostell and Gerhard Richter.
 
Austrian Architecture Museum
The Architekturzentrum Wien is the Austrian Museum of Architecture and sees itself as an exhibition, events and research centre that focuses on the theme of architecture and the culture of building. The permanent exhibition, “a_show. Austrian Architecture in the 20th and 21st Centuries”, shows highlights of the history of Austrian architecture, while temporary exhibitions present the wide spectrum of contemporary architecture.


Also thehe vast inner courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier is a culture oasis in a class of its own.
During the summer months visitors and locals relax on weatherproof furniture, fondly dubbed the Enzis and enjoy contemplative leisure stroll, acommpanied by the endless stimulation of culture.

Wander the complex to find thoughtfully placed outdoor cafes, restaurants, music venues and a calendar of events that spans all seasons.
