Venues at the MAK

Celebrate in traditionally grand style amidst the classic ambience of one of the most famous representative buildings on Vienna’s Ringstraße, or take advantage of the unique atmosphere of the exhibition halls for your special event.

The MAK was founded by Emperor Franz Joseph in 1863 as the “Imperial Royal Austrian Museum of Art and Industry” and moved into its present-day quarters on Stubenring in 1871; it was the first museum to be built on the Ring. Today, it serves as a museum and laboratory for applied arts at the interface of design, architecture, and contemporary art. Thus situated between tradition and the present, the MAK offers space for all kinds of events—and will make yours an unforgettable experience.

At your request, we would also be happy to arrange a exclusive tours as part of your event—in the halls of the MAK’s Permanent Collection through the  Study Collection or though current temporary exhibitions.
