Overview

In 1933 the museum of the Cathedral and Diocese was opened, although 50 years before this, the necessity to realize such a museum was discussed. The 500-year history of St. Stephen's Cathedral, 250 years after the victory against the Turkish army in Vienna, was the motive to realize the museum at that point. The collection houses unique objects of religious Austrian art of the past thousand years and beyond. The museum presents objects which are not used in the churches any longer, or which are in danger of being stolen or destroyed in their churches. Since 1980 the valuable collection of modern art, Austrian and international pieces, as collected by Monsignor Otto Mauer, has been a part of the museum.
