1972 was when this educational and historical treat was first conceived. Come to the first Viennese municipality district Inner City to experience the Bezirksmuseum Innere Stadt, the county and local history museum.
This quaint museum is housed in the Old Town Hall at Wipplingerstraße 8. There is an interesting history of how the museum has changed both its original intended purpose as well as its location a handful of times.
The museum has many incredible displays, including finds from Roman times, a collection of Old Vienna engravings and watercolors, and exhibits from 1848 to the present day, including 99 subjects of the Archduchess Valerie. The museum contains an extensive library with around 1,000 volumes about the history of the city. Take a peak at the Zabusch Collection, which has an historic house map of Vienna's city center.
The museum is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 4PM-6PM, and admission is free.
