In our educational work, it is important to us to think further, to question perspectives and narratives in the exhibitions and to find new perspectives together. Exchange and change of perspective, communication and discussion are dear to our hearts.Our focus is on the present view of the past: reflected, critical, respectful. The extensive collections of folk art and regional culture of Austria, its neighboring countries (former crown lands) and other parts of Europe, as well as a complementary collection on topics of "flight" and "migration" provide points of reference for doing research together.

Special programs for groups and school classes:
In addition to the regular programms the museum offers extensive cultural education in the special exhibitions. These can also be found in the programmes. For The Shores of Austria, the supplementary exhibition in the exhibition collection, we recommend the programme What does "Migration Background" actually mean?
For groups of adults:
Our offers for adults can be found in the programmes. We are also happy to organise workshops, in-depth guided tours or discussions with specialists and curators on various topics in our exhibitions and collections. We have plenty of material for exchange, change of perspective and discussion. We look forward to your request.
For individual visitors:
Would you like to go on a puzzle hunt through the museum? Have you ever written with a quill? Do you know what it looks like behind the scenes of a museum? Outside of our regular programme, we regularly organise special programmes for children, young people and adults. You can find these in our Event Calender (German).
