The Austrian theater Museum is situated in Vienna's first remarkable baroque palace, built in 1683 and designed by G.P. Tencala for the Dietrichstein family. The building was later owned by the noble and generous Lobkowitz family. Since 1991, the doors of this splendid palace have been opened to visitors by the Austrian theater Museum. The Museum owns a huge, international collection of stage dioramas, costumes, props, photos and drawings. There are about 1.5 million pieces of theater memorabilia, among them a collection of manuscripts by the writer Stefan Zweig. After a visit to the museum, ask about the annexe on Hanuschgasse, which houses memorial rooms of the composers, writers and performers who greatly influenced Austrian theater (for example Max Reinhardt, Caspar Neher, C.M.Ziehrer, Hermann Bahr).
