About the

After three years of renovation, Wien Museum was reopened in December 2023. As a new major player in Vienna’s museum landscape, it impressively demonstrates where the potential and social relevance of museums might lie today. Together with the permanent exhibition team, we will discuss the reference points and principles of the new concept. We will analyse the specific use of objects, the role of texts, the significance of interactive offerings, as well as the part that architecture and design play in the narrative. We will gather the initial experiences of the education team. Particular attention will be paid to the question of what new city-specific themes the museum features, and how sensitive content is handled and prepared. Finally, we will look at specific examples and discuss the new Wien Museum’s obligation to the present and future city: How can the present be captured with the means of the museum? How can a museum keep up with the times and stay up to date?
