Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, children working

Kunsthistorisches Museum (Art History Museum)

There are also ancient statues of mythical beasts to admire, while anyone interested in finding out how the children were dressed in the Spanish court 300 years ago should take a close look at the masterpieces by Velázquez.

There are children’s audio guides and regular kids’ tours (every Sat. and Sun., in German), many of which are followed by creative sessions in the studio. Special kids’ brochures are also available (in German). The Treasuries, the Neue Burg (Ephesus Museum, Collection of Arms and Armor, Collection of Ancient Musical Instruments) and the Imperial Coach Collection at Schönbrunn Palace also offer regular tours for young visitors.
