Dipl.Ing. Wolfgang Stritzinger

Custodian, Transport Collection Section

With the Vienna Technical Museum since:

November 1999

My duties include:

1999-2004: Museum educator in the Museum Education Department
Since 2004: Custodian with the Collections Department

  • Expanding, developing, documenting and providing scientific support for the collection groups on Aviation & Space Travel as well as Navigation
  • Curating exhibitions
  • Publications
  • Curator’s guided tours of the demonstration model of a mine and the high-voltage room
  • Working on planning and organising energy debates

My recommendations for you:

One stand-out exhibit on your tour of the Transport exhibition is the painstakingly restored working model (more than 4 m long) of the steam-powered dredger by Samuel Bollinger from 1839.

I also recommend that you visit the demonstration model of a mine and the Heavy Industry exhibition, which features among others the exact replica of the 1914 model of the Erzberg by the mining company Österreichisch-Alpine Montangesellschaft.
