AUS­TRIA

Upscale Living Magazine - - Art + Culture -

Housed in its fes­tive pala­tial build­ing on Ringstraße, the Kun­sthis­torisches Mu­seum was opened in 1891. Crowned with an oc­tag­o­nal dome that is 60 me­ters high, the mu­seum fea­tures eight col­lec­tions rang­ing from a col­lec­tion of Greek and Ro­man An­tiq­ui­ties, Im­pe­rial Ar­moruy and the Kun­stkam­mer Wien. The lav­ish in­te­rior of the build­ing houses the col­lec­tions of the Hab­s­burg em­per­ors and arch­dukes from an­cient Egypt and Greece to the late 18th cen­tury.
