Vienna Furniture Museum

During the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph the  Imperial-Royal Furniture Depository was the central storage facility for the furniture and furnishings owned by the Habsburg family. Today it is one of the largest collections of furniture in the world, housing some 165,000 objects.

The collection is dedicated to the renovation, preservation and administration of its holdings, and is open to the general public as a museum. On display is furniture from more than three centuries, ranging from imperial furnishings, furniture from various stylistic eras including the Biedermeier and Historicist eras and the Vienna Modern movement to contemporary furniture design. It also mounts temporary exhibitions which are devoted to the history of architeture, design and twentieth-century furniture.

The building has also undergone visible transformation in terms of its appearance: for the opening of the musem in 1998 it was given an attractive modern exterior designed by Italian star architect Alessandro Alverà.
