Celebrate in traditionally grand style amidst the classic ambience of one of the most famous representative buildings on Viennas 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 eventsand will make yours an unforgettable experience.
The museums exhibition halls, accessible via the main entrance on Weiskirchnerstraße, were built between 1906 and 1909 according to plans by architect Ludwig Baumann, and their total floor space of 2,700 m2 puts them among Austrias largest such venues.
This suite of rooms formerly occupied by the director and his staff is steeped in the atmosphere of the Viennese Art Nouveau, to which works of contemporary fine and applied art provide a counterpoint.
