The House of Austrian History is the republic’s first museum of contemporary history. Presented in a modern and insightful way, the new museum invites visitors to the Hofburg to examine and discuss Austria’s history. Starting with the founding of the democratic republic in 1918, the exhibition focuses on social change and political fault lines. While the questions it asks are aimed at the past, they remain relevant to the present as well.
Conceived as a discussion forum for Austria as a whole, the museum opens up new perspectives on the country’s past and present – with an eye to the future. It also offers a wide range of educational services and an innovative web platform.
