9 Tips for Museums

What exhibitions do you find exciting? Contemporary art, street art or an open-air museum outdoors? In addition to art galleries, you can also visit great small museums or browse through folk culture museums in Styria. No two museums are alike. In the city and country, each museum has its own style.

In searching for the muse, you will come across completely different exhibitions in the Green Heart of Austria: folk culture museums, such as the open-air museum in Stübing, invite you to actively experience history and stroll through the green valley. At the Graz Art Museumon the other hand, you delve into the architecturally playful spaces and can then linger in the trendy art café. Another option is the museum experience at Eggenberg Palace: the wall paintings are magnificent and stately.

Participation welcome! In some local museums, guided tours or workshops are offered where exhibitions are explained in a way that is fun. Ask at the museum of your choice and be inspired.

Our recommendation for city visits: Styria is equally rich in galleries. From small peculiarities to popular works of art, creators of culture show their creative and innovative side in the city and country.
