The Schlossmuseum Linz is the largest universal museum in Austria.
On 18,000 square meters you will find an extensive collection of the natural, cultural and technical history of Upper Austria.
The mixture of historical and modern architecture of the building is also impressive.
The castle museum is enthroned high above the city and the river. The historic Renaissance castle and the modern new construction of the south wing are architecturally well done and show once again the future-oriented attitude of the Capital of Culture 2009.
The permanent exhibitions of the Castle Museum offer a varied insight and lead through the cultural history of Upper Austria.
In addition, major exhibitions dealing with national and international topics as well as smaller presentations from the museum's holdings are held annually.
The castle museum is also a highlight for families: exhibitions are prepared accordingly for young visitors.
Please note the information on the museum's website.
