The Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, known by its local name as Österreichisches Museum für Angewandte Kunst, is essentially a design museum.

On display are glass, china, silver and textiles dating back to the Middle Ages. Particularly noteworthy are the tapestries which date back to the 16th century.

The museum's collections grew substantially after World War I, when much of the art previously owned by the Habsburgs was seized and given to the museum. Similarly, when the Nazi's annexed Austria, the museum was the receiver of many private collections previously owned by wealthy Jews in the city.

Although much of this art work has been given back to its rightful owners, the museum still has a large and impressive collection, argued to be one of the most important of its type in the world.

The museum was the first built on the Ringstrasse. Work was completed in 1871 in the Neo-renaissance style following the plans of Heinrich von Ferstel – the same architect who designed the Votivkirche which is located nearby.

The museum is open late on Tuesdays, and entrance is free on Saturdays. There are also discounts for visitors who have purchased the Vienna Card.
