Programme diversity in Linz´s museums
Ars Electronica Center
Try things out, join in and think: that is the motto of the Ars Electronica Centre! In Spring 2019, the Ars Electronic Centre underwent a major thematic redesign. Under the motto “Compass – Navigating the Future”, the Ars Electronica Centre is now a compass and guide through the man-made systems of the 21st century. The themes of the newly designed exhibitions range from artificial intelligence and neurobionics, autonomous systems and robotics, genetic and biotechnology, to the far-reaching global changes of our time.
Francisco Carolinum Linz
Francisco Carolinum Linz is the museum for the modern and contemporary art of Upper Austria. It provides information on the latest artistic trends and integrates them into 20th century art history. The programme of the Francisco Carolinum Linz is defined by the interrelationships between regional, national and international art production.
Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz
LENTOS is one of the most important museums of modern and contemporary art in Austria. Its collections give insights into the history of art since the late 19th century and exhibit important paintings by Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka as well as from more modern movements and by significant artists for Linz, such as VALIE EXPORT.
Exhibitions – events – musical events – festivals – cinema – children’s programme – international gastronomy – the OÖ Kulturquartier at the heart of Linz is a space and creative centre for art and culture – from regional specialities to international art highlights! The multifunctional OK-Platz provides space for play, communication, movement and a relaxed stay – 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
With an exhibition space of over 10,000 m², the Schlossmuseum Linz provides a comprehensive overview of the natural, cultural and artistic history of Upper Austria from its origins to the 21st century. Wide-ranging permanent exhibitions can be seen in both the historical castle and the new south wing. They range from topics of natural to contemporary history and feature a wide, diverse range of special fields.
voestalpine Stahlwelt, the world of knowledge and experience of one of the most important and modern materials of our time, offers a breathtaking insight into the voestalpine group. Steel production and processing with high-tech facilities, the ‘city within the city’ has countless working environments and impressive views of the more than 5 square kilometres of factory premises in Linz. A particular highlight is a works tour of the largest industrial site in Austria. A visit to Blast Furnace A is globally unique to Linz. In the holidays, a special programme for families with children is on offer.
ÖBB Rail Tours-Tip
What distinguishes this city from others is its character and its constant development. A particular turning point was the year 2009, when Linz became European Capital of Culture. The list of new openings at that time is impressive: the south wing of the Schlossmuseum, the voestalpine Stahlwelt, the Ars Electronica Center, the rebuilt Pöstlingbergbahn line and also the Höhenrausch, which took place for the last time in 2021. Another legacy of Linz09 is the Music Theater, which opened in 2013 and is one of the most modern opera houses in Europe. The ideas, projects and initial sparks from the Capital of Culture year continue to inspire visitors and residents alike to this day.
