In the 17th Century, today's Johanneum was known as Lambrechter Hof, after its first owner. In 1811, Habsburg Archduke Johann took control of the building and donated his scientific collection as the basis of the museum's exhibitions. Soon after, the collection was made available to the public and was subsequently expanded. Presently, the main building of the Johanneum in Raubergasse, houses the geology, zoology, mineralogy and botany departments as permanent exhibits. The Alte Galerie also shows visiting exhibits (such as works by Schiele and Gaugin).
