Research project CROWN
The Imperial Crown is one of the greatest treasures housed in the Imperial Treasury. Made of gold, enamel, pearls and precious stones, it served for centuries as the coronation insignia of the kings and emperors of the Holy Roman Empire and can look back on a long and eventful European history.
A research project is dedicated to the investigation of the materiality, technology and state of preservation of the Imperial Crown in Vienna – find out more about the research project!

Once in a lifetime
In 2018, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna hosted an unprecedented event: around half of all extant works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder were on show in the exhibition Bruegel – Once in a Lifetime. This amazing gathering of masterpieces was a small miracle – which you can enjoy during a digital visit.
