The many museums of Admont

Fine arts, contemporary art and natural history. Here, not only will you inform yourself about these subjects but you will also learn lots of new things – about the Benedictine monks, the National Park and its nature and also about barrier-free art.

Apart from the well-known monastic library with its 70,000 antiquarian books, which is incredibly impressive in real life, there are many other things to be discovered at Admont Abbey. The walls of the Benedictine Abbey contain several museums. You’ll be spoilt for choice – you can either visit all of them in one day or you can take it slow and visit them one by one; they definitely constitute an all-day activity. Besides the permanent collections there is also a temporary exhibition each year.

Variety in the museums

Prick up your ears and listen to the sound of nature in the National Park Room or learn about the lives of the Benedictine monks. Follow in the footsteps of Father Gabriel Strobl by visiting the Natural History Museum or marvel at contemporary art that has been especially commissioned for the museum in Admont. If you prefer something more classical you can visit the church treasury and see works from the Romanesque to the Baroque period, from sculptures and paintings to textile art works. This way, everyone will find their own favourite sight at Admont Abbey.
