Stand back and marvel at world-famous cultural treasures from all over the globe.
The Museum of Ethnology in Vienna is one of the most important ethnographic museums in the world and is located in the newest part of the Vienna Hofburg on the Ringstrasse.

Highlights from the museum can be traced back to over 500 years of collecting by the Habsburgs themselves -  these include the art treasures of Emperor Rudolf II, the unique Old Mexican feather jewellery, the world-famous collection of James Cook as well as objects from the discovery and research expeditions of the 19th century.

Exhibition highlights 2021/22

Dust and Silk
03.12.2021 - 03.05.2022

From 3 December 2021, the Weltmuseum Wien will be showing a major exhibition on the legendary Silk Road
Splendid fabrics made of silk, tea and "wild apples" found their way to Europe via the myth-enshrouded trade routes of the steppes and Silk Roads. The exhibition invites visitors to a multi-layered search for traces through history and the present and asks about the connections between the historical routes and the "New Silk Road".
For this purpose, historical objects, artworks and photographs are juxtaposed with contemporary artistic perspectives and voices of various actors.
