Vorarlberg Museum Bregenz

Cultural history in a new outfit

In the immediate vicinity of Lake Constance, next to the Kunsthaus and National Theatre, the new Vorarlberg Museum opened on 21 June-2013. The listed building of the Cultural History Museum was extended by a two-storey heightening and a five-storey, block-shaped outbuilding. The striking facade is dominated by the "concrete blossoms" that were formed from the bottoms of commercially available disposable PET bottles.

The extensive collection presents archeology, history and art of the province of Vorarlberg. The exhibitions are to give visitors of all ages sensual experience and intellectual knowledge. On the one hand, the PHOS 20 projection systems illustrate and comment on the exhibits, on the other hand they project a directional system on floors and walls over the whole building.
