The Wien Museum Karlsplatz is to be renovated and extended in the coming years. The building, opened in 1959 and designed by Oswald Haerdtl, is to be transformed into a city museum that embraces the future. It will incorporate more space for exhibitions, purpose-built areas for educational programmes and school classes, functional spaces for events and appealing cuisine. One of the city's hubs and an attractive destination for all target audiences.

Prior to the museum closing temporarily for the planned redevelopment, the exhibition Let’s Go! A New Era for the Wien Museum is once again to take a concentrated look at the diversity of our programme and, above all, arouse interest in what is to come!

To this end, five galleries on the museum's top floor are each to host a presentation on fundamental topics such as history, discourse, participation, responsibility and space.
