Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna
The Main Staircase and the Cupola Hall combine baroque decorative features to one of the most precious interior rooms of all European museum architecture. The original ceiling and wall paintings are amongst others by Mihály von Munkácsy, Hans Makart and Gustav Klimt. Antonio Canova’s statue of Theseus Slaying the Centaur is the focal point of the landing and is particularly well suited for welcoming your guests personally, or for starting the evening with a performance of music or dancing.
*If the staircase is also booked, 700 or 220 people are possible
The impressive Entrance Hall leads to a series of wonderfully decorated rooms. You may choose to welcome your guests with a cocktail reception held in the Entrance Hall. This area offers access to the Egyptian and Near Eastern Collection and to the Kunstkammer – or use the Mezzanine for small receptions and as an effective entrée to the Kunstkammer.
The Lounge on the 2nd floor with a breathtaking view into the Cupola Hall is the perfect location for a private cocktail party. Enjoy delicious food and fine drinks, while looking at the amazing Maria Theresien-Platz and the Naturhistorisches Museum Vienna. Events are only possible outside our opening hours.
