Wien Museum MUSA - A Small Gallery with the Best of Austrian Art

Join us for a visit to the collection of the Departure of Culture of Vienna and find out the best of contemporary Austrian art.

MUSA presents contemporary Austrian art of the collection of the Cultural Department of the City of Vienna. With its approximately 30,000 objects by about 4,500 artists, the museum will give you a full picture of Viennese art since 1945.

The largest collection of Austrian contemporary art at the MUSA sports everything that you can imagine in art – painting, graphics, sculpture, statuary art, photography, film, video, installations, and "art on the building" such as mosaics, graffiti and frescos. A high-ranking panel purchases new works from Viennese artists guided by the greatest possible stylistic range and quality, as well as a reference to Vienna.

The MUSA Wien is located in a city office building from 1916, just next the the fantastic City Hall which you are going to see anyway during your visit and thus, a visit to MUSA should be a natural continuation of your visit.

The museum started as “Museum on Demand” with an exhibition Into the Light in the Volkshalle at the City Hall. The goal of the museum has remained the same throughout the years: to present the city’s art collection to the public be it domestic or foreign.

Since 1979, MUSA also includes a service facility, Artothek allowing everyone who lives in Vienna to borrow art for a small fee - brilliant idea if you ever move to Vienna!.

The museum shop in the foyer offers a nice selection of books and art stuff with the necessary souvenirs related to Vienna. Access to the shop is step-free and unrestricted.

There is no restaurant but you will find a vending machine containing cold drinks is available in the foyer. A drink after your museum visit is not a problem, though, as you couldn't be more centrally located and the restaurants and bars of the Museumquartier and the in the inner centre are but a few steps away.

There is no cloakroom but a freestanding coat rack and lockers are available in the lower entrance area at Rathausstraße 14 where there is also a step-free access to the museum via an elevator. All exhibition areas including a fancy 1970's styled loo are located at the gallery, step-free, and fully accessible with a wheelchair/baby stroller.
