Heraus Mit der Sprache!
The Erasmus+ project combines language didactics and art education: Together with the University of Duisburg-Essen, we have developed learning and teaching materials for students between the ages of 10 and 12. They support young visitors in discovering the museum as a place of learning and experiencing it with all their senses.

Our new app tour "A Snowball's Chance?!” follows the tracks of climate crisis and is now available for kids and adults, so visitors of different age can get to know the museum and learn new things. Here you can discover further offers for families.
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.
