Museum Quarter History

The buildings were built in the 18th century, and were intended for barracks, stables, cavalry arena, and other buildings that served the imperial court as the location of vehicles. After the overthrow of the monarchy, the building lost its relevance, and in 1921 it was transformed into an exhibition complex. Until the beginning of 2001, the complex was restored, completed, supplemented with new buildings, and finally, the Museum Quarter acquired the form that we can see today. Now this place has become one of the most visited by tourists. More than a million visitors are here annually. A tourist attraction combines ancient Baroque architectural buildings with modern art objects and decorations.

Among the many institutions of the Museum Quarter, there are several places that you definitely need to visit.
