Information

The Weltmuseum Wien is one of the major museums of its kind. It was founded as an independent institution in the New Imperial Residence/Palace in 1928. Up to this date the ethnographic collections had formed part of the Museum of Natural History founded in 1876. The museum's collections document Austria´s relations to the non-European regions as well as the diversity, richness, and creativity of people and cultures from all around the world. The earliest of them came to Austria already in the 16th century. Presently the collection consists of ca. 185,000 objects and 25,000 historical photographs.
