Dietmar Linzbacher

Deputy Head of Team, Energy & Mining

With the Vienna Technical Museum since:

I began working on various exhibitions on a contract basis in 1991. In March 1993 I joined the permanent staff, working in the Energy & Mining collection section

My duties include:

  • Expanding, developing, documenting and providing scientific support for the Mechanical Engineering Collection Group as well as the Electrical Engineering Collection Group (jointly with Andreas Vormaier)
  • Providing support with the Energy exhibition (steam engines in particular )
  • Working on the complete inventory of collections at the Technisches Museum 

My recommendation for you:

Immerse yourself in the model recreating the raising of the Egyptian obelisk on St Peter’s Square in the “Time of the Arts” section of the Energy exhibition. A wonderful example of the complex organisation involved in lifting heavy loads before the age of machinery.
