Via our social media channels, we offer exciting and unique insights about our current exhibitions.
Every Wednesday at 5 p.m. (CET) director Danielle Spera presents the exhibition “Little Vienna in Shanghai”. In the entertaining episodes, she not only takes you on a trip to Shanghai, but also tells you about the stories of the 22 Viennese families who are portrayed in the exhibition.

Yiddish in Viennese
What a Bahöö! My best Haberer! Are they completely meschugge now? It’s a shame that the Beisln are closed!
From the middle of the 19th century, the Yiddish language found its way into Viennese dialect. Every Monday in a new series “Yiddish/Viennese” on our social media channels, we will present a Viennese word that is actually also a Yiddish word or vice versa.
Subscribe to our social media channels now and take part in the weekly digital language experience!
Do you miss our exhibitions and museum stories?
Theodor Herzl’s bicycle, “Victoria Blitz,” is wondering what Viennese are doing in China. Do you know how to play Mahjong? Where did Friedrich Kantor get his stage name “Torberg” from? Why are there four receptacles in the museum collection for accepting donations for the impoverished and for poor brides?
We introduce objects on our museum blog, tell background stories about the exhibitions or let the objects themselves speak.
