    Databases on motor vehicles in Austria

    As part of a research project at the Technisches Museum Wien (2009-2012) important sources on motor vehicle ownership in Austria in the 1930s and 1940s were collated and analysed.
  • Provenance research

    Provenance research examines the origins of exhibits from individual collection areas and checks whether they were unlawfully taken from their original owners during the Nazi era.
  • Stock-take project

    The Technisches Museum Wien has a very large inventory of exhibits dating as far back as the 18th century. Those exhibits are only made available for museum purposes once they have been listed on its inventories and catalogued in terms of location.
