TECHNISCHES MUSEUM WIEN

ADVENTURE²
Embedded in the protected art nouveau atmosphere of the Technisches Museum Wien, unique objects from the past and the present tell of the lives and works of famous personalities. The Etrich II “Taube” (or “Dove”), for instance, takes us back to the pioneer era of engine-powered flights; the Mercedes W 196 “Silberpfeil” (or “Silver Arrow”) tells us about its striking adventures and the imperial saloon car used by Empress Elisabeth looks back on numerous journeys with its royal owner.
Automatic musical instruments, fully functional steam engines, a lifelike coal mine - the exhibits of the Technisches Museum Wien invite you to be amazed, to participate and to experience. Make your own announcement in the television studio, test the strength of your own voice in the shouting chamber or watch lightning and charges make your hair stand on end.
Furthermore, the Technisches Museum Wien is the owner of the most valuable railway collection in Austria.

Musical Instruments
Organ, violin, automatons

Since its foundation, the Technisches Museum Wien has also taken care of the craft of instrument making. Primary focus is given to the piano makers, who also made organs at the beginning of the 19th century. It is not widely known that the accordion was invented in Vienna in 1829. The instrument makers have always tried to improve their products by trial and error. An additional part of the exhibition is dedicated to these experiments, which finally brought the development of electronic instruments in the 20th century.
