Vienna would not be Vienna without its theatres
At Palais Lobkowitz, just a few steps from the Hofburg Palace, the Theatermuseum conveys a sense of the history of theatre from the late 15th century to contemporary experimental theatre. With around two million objects the Theatermuseum is one of the largest documentation centres of its kind. Here the vast diversity of theatre genres – from stage acting to dance, puppetry to film, and pantomime to opera – is showcased in temporary exhibitions organised in co-operation with international partners.
