The MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art is one of the most important museums of its kind worldwide. Founded as the Imperial Royal Austrian Museum of Art and Industry in 1863, today’s museum—with its unique collection of applied arts and as a first-class address for contemporary art—can boast an incomparable identity. Originally established as an exemplary source collection, today’s MAK Collection continues to stand for an extraordinary union of applied art, design, contemporary art and architecture. In temporary exhibitions, the MAK presents various artistic stances from the fields of applied arts, design, architecture, contemporary art, and new media, with the mutual relationships between them being a consistently emphasized theme. The institution’s multifaceted mission allows for varied approaches, opening up new perspectives from which to regard historical relationships and offering frequent glimpses at artistically and societally relevant developments that are just beginning to appear on the horizon. The MAK, which defines itself as a laboratory of societal knowledge, is a place of collecting, research, preservation, education, and interactive learning, as well as a site of human encounters, interaction, and intercreativity. Thanks not least to its international branches and cross-border activities, the museum is also a forum of intercultural and artistic exchange as well as of fruitful dialog with designers, artists, and architects.

Lucky to be in town for the Vienna Biennale 2017, which took up all the temporary gallery space with a number of interestingly themed exhibitions. I was particularly fascinated by the CityFactory: New Work exhibition, and I Robot: Design Between human and Machine. Both exhibitions...More

I can't remember exactly, but it was less than €10 each (concession for coffin-dodgers like me)... but worth the money - have a look at the website; I'm sure there'll be a list of entry fees featured..
