19 departments and institutions with over 300 staff members on 12 locations, more than 4.5 million objects in 500 rooms. What’s hidden behind them? Austria’s oldest and second-largest museum: Landesmuseum Joanneum. Moreover, it is also the most important regional museum of Austria – due to its size and extensive collections.
A place of history: in 1811 Archduke Johann founded the Landesmuseum Joanneum and committed it to presenting a comprehensive picture of the historical development of the nature and culture, of the country and its people.

Your personal guide through Kunsthaus Graz

Exploring an exhibition at your own speed, with all the interesting information readily available ...

… impossible? Not at the Kunsthaus Graz! This is made possible by the new SpaceGuide. On entering the exhibition, the visitor is equipped with a Nokia 770. This way, interesting facts about exhibits and different walking tours are at the visitor’s disposal, simply at the push of a button. Additional material available on the SpaceGuide includes interviews with artists, material on exhibition construction and other video material.

SpaceGuide – your personal guide

Each exhibit carries a number. Just enter this number and listen to the information presented. If you find an object particularly fascinating, just mark it using the “memory” function. At the passage to the Needle, there are computer terminals providing yet more information on the objects you marked. Multi-media features such as interviews with artists, material on exhibition construction and other video material are also offered, inviting you to take a break and find out more about the exhibition. If you want to take a structured tour, just choose one of the tours offered on the SpaceGuide. There are tours focussing on the architecture of the building and exhibition tours. There are plans to introduce special tours for children using the SpaceGuide.


Educational Services

Developing interesting and diverse programmes to the current and permanent exhibitions, our large team is going to reduce the children’s and adolescents’ fear of the unknown. In this respect it is of particular importance for us to promote creativity and to sensitise children and young adults to the interaction with art and cultural goods. Visiting a museum is an exciting experience and should appeal to all ages.

Museumsakademie Joanneum

Within an international network of museums and museological institutions, the "Museumsakademie Joanneum. Competence Centre for Museology and Art" offers a setting for innovative forms of museological education and training, conduct research and documentation and functions as a platform for discussions of museology theory. The Museumsakamdemie Joanneum works closely with educational establishments, amongst others the Joanneum Technical College and Graz University.


Restitution at Landesmuseum Joanneum

The "Acquisitions and Reserves from Jewish property 1938-1955" association is run by employees of the Landesmuseum Joanneum. At the beginning of April 1998 they were given the task of examining and analysing records from the war and post-war period in relation to the questionable acquisition of objects in the collection. Its objective is to establish whether there are today still objects in the museum that do not rightfully belong there, and to return these to the rightful owners or their heirs.

At the end of 1999, the results of this research could be presented to the government of the Province of Styria in a full report of around 400 pages. Investigations had revealed that essentially three of the Landesmuseum Joanneum departments were affected: the historico-cultural collection, the Neue Galerie and the Alte Galerie. The following archives were contacted: the archive of the Bundesdenkmalamt (Austrian Federal Office for the Care of Monuments) in Vienna, the archive of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, the Steiermärkisches Landesarchiv in Graz and departmental archives. Both correlations and contradictions to the archive records were discovered from the old and new inventory books. The report includes such famous names as the Rothschild, Bondy, Gutmann and Pollak collections, among others. It deals with acquisitions made via the Vugesta, the Gestapo, the Dorotheum and various other auction houses as well as through trustees and galleries.
