Dom Museum Wien
The Dom Museum Wien houses the historic treasures of Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral and the archdiocese of Vienna as well as avant-garde classics from the collection of Otto Mauer. A highlight of the collection is the world-famous portrait of Duke Rudolf IV "the Founder" from the House of Habsburg (1339-1365): It is considered to the oldest, most realistic portrait in Western World and was probably created in around 1360. The painting is on permanent display in the Dom Museum Wien. Rudolf IV himself was buried in the catacombs of St. Stephen's Cathedral, right next door to the museum.
The contemporary remodeling of the historic building with its view of St. Stephen's Cathedral enables an exciting setting and comparison of old and new. Alongside the permanent exhibition of historic objects, two special exhibitions each year deal with current and relevant topics at the interface of society, religion and art.
