Donations for the collection

The Technisches Museum Wien (Vienna Technical Museum) has a large collection, some of which has been able to be provided thanks to generous donations from companies and private individuals. If you think that you have an item of technical equipment with an interesting history that would be worth putting in a collection, or important archive materials on the history of technology, please contact us. But we do ask for your understanding that, given the huge number of donation offers we receive, we have to be highly selective in our choices.

We need the following information to decide whether to include an object in the collections:

  • Its name, history of use, manufacturer and year of manufacture (if available)
  • Photos documenting its actual state

Beyond that, we are regularly on the look-out for particular exhibits that are still missing in our collection, through our initiative ‘Dream Job: Museum Exhibit’.
