Our Mission


Here technology is an experience²

Technology and science are two of the main forces driving our society. They shape and surround us in our daily lives. The growing complexity and ever quickening pace of development cycles mean that we are constantly faced with new challenges.

At the interface between past and future the Technisches Museum Wien (Vienna Technical Museum) invites visitors to discover, experience and reflect on different fields of technology and its history, catering to all ages and interests.
Historical exhibits, many of them unique, are showcased in their cultural context, with fun ways and methods of transferring knowledge making it literally possible to get to grips with technology.

A place of lively encounte

We also see ourselves as a platform for controversial debates, addressing topical issues and fulfilling our educational remit with scientific responsibility. As a result the Technisches Museum Wien is an example of a lively museum constantly striving to evolve further. And so we invite you to engage in an exciting encounter with technology at our Museum. 

The mainstays of our work

Our work is founded on legislation following the 2002 Federal Museums Act and, in particular, on the Museum Rules and Regulations for the Technisches Museum Wien together with the Österreichische Mediathek. They set out the legal form, general and particular remit, tasks, organisation, management and tasks of the board of trustees as the supervisory body for all economic matters.
