Exhibition Halls

The museum’s 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 Austria’s largest such venues.
The so-called Weiskirchner Wing’s magnificent late-historicist entrance foyer, one of the Ringstraße’s largest and most generously proportioned such spaces, is an impressive introduction to the museum complex. Even during normal opening hours, the various halls are available for your events whenever they are not occupied by museum exhibitions.

These spaces are all fully climate-controlled and make suitable venues for banquets, receptions, première parties, conferences, fashion shows, product presentations, and trade fairs.
