On March 1, 2013 the Kunstkammer Vienna reopens to the public! The Kunstkammer of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is unique: in the late Middle Ages, but also during the Renaissance and the Baroque, emperors and princes collected rare, curious and exceptional objects and commissioned objets d’art that documented the artists’ virtuosity.
Among the highlights of the Kunstkammer Vienna are outstanding goldsmith works such as the celebrated Saliera by Benvenuto Cellini, magnificent sculptures like the Krumau Madonna, fabulous bronze statuettes, delicate and bizarre ivories and vessels cut from semi-precious stones as well as precious clocks, complicated automatons, strange scientific instruments, precious board games and much much more.
This unique collection will be displayed on over 2.700 m2: from March 1, 2013 come and enjoy 20 newly-installed galleries that present a world of beauty and esprit, of all that is curious and magnificent.
