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.
Following many years of complex work, these magnificent
grand objects have now been restored to their former
glory. Selected exhibits, such as Ajax, Steinbrück and
others, can now be seen again in the museum.

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
