Event Details

After three years of reconstruction it is finally ready; the newly designed Weltmuseum Wien will be reopened on 25 October with several special exhibitions. After the opening ceremony, the Weltmuseum Wien will be accessible again after closing for three years. Visitors are free to explore the new museum until 1am at night. The centerpiece of the new museum will be the new collection, designed from the ground up. In 14 rooms, which are arranged like a string of stories, the central collections are shown and interpreted from a contemporary perspective. They will show a total of 3,127 objects as well as numerous photographs. In doing so, surprising connections between Austria and the world are often made visible. All visitors will be invited to rediscover the world-wide collections including the Two Court Dwarfs, the two worldwide unparalleled figures that are among the earliest artworks from the Benin Kingdom.
