Adopt a Masterpiece

Did you fall in love with a particular artwork during your visit to the museum? By adopting an artwork from one of our collections you help us preserve our rich holdings.

In return for your commitment and support we offer unexpected insights into our collections, and the opportunity to learn about the research conducted by our curators. And becoming a patron does not have a time limit - your name will forever be connected with your „godchild“ in the museum’s electronic inventory.

Treat your loved ones to a very special gift – adopt an artwork for your children or grandchildren, or as a unique present to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary or a wedding. Join us and support art.

»We’ve always enjoyed visiting the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, but adopting an artwork has made this relationship much more special. In a way, it’s now a little bit our museum.«
