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 (in German and English, presenting 50 selected objects, for children up to 10 years), regular kids’ tours (every Sat., in German) and creative sessions in the studio (every Sun.). 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.
In March 2017, the Condé Nast Traveler named the Kunsthistorisches Museum one of the 15 most beautiful museums in the world!
