The Weltmuseum Wien is one of the world’s leading ethnographical museums, situated in the Hofburg Palace on Vienna’s Ringstrasse. In 14 distinct exhibition galleries, the focus is on unique cultural treasures from all over the world. The aim is to communicate to visitors the cultural diversity, stories and ways of life in an entertaining way. The highlights of the Museum represent more than 500 years of high-quality collecting activities on the part of the Habsburgs – among them objects from the Cabinet of Curiosities of Emperor Rudolf II, the unique Mexican feather headdress »Penacho«, the world-famous collection of James Cook, and objects from the voyages of discovery and research of the 19th century. Your Weltmuseum Wien ticket also grants you admission to the stunning Imperial Armoury and, from autumn 2018, the Collection of Historic Musical Instruments.
