What to Expect
Founded as Austria’s first public museum in 1811, the Universalmuseum Joanneum presents a broad range of art, culture, and the natural sciences at 12 architecturally valuable locations.
Kunsthaus Graz is an essential landmark in the urban identity of the city of Graz. As an exhibition center for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus exhibits Austrian and international art from 1960 onwards. Its BIX media façade—designed by Berlin designers realities:united—constitutes a unique fusion of architecture and media technology. Effectively a large screen in the middle of the city, it acts as an instrument of art communication.
Visit the Bel Étage of Eggenberg Palace furnished with original 17th and 18th century designs, furniture, tapestries, and decorations circling 24 state rooms, among the most significant ensembles in Austria. You will also discover the huge landscaped garden dating back to the Romantic period. See the Alte Galerie which shows the fascinating universe of European art and experience the Coin Cabinet and the Archaeology Museum in Schloss Eggenberg.
The Styrian Armory attracts around 55,000 visitors annually. It is Joanneum’s most-visited institution without an exhibition role. Moreover, as the largest historic armoury in the world, it is a living memorial to a chequered, conflict-ridden past, whose bogeymen and prejudices are still present.
