The quest for what is good for the soul
Live tour on Instagram (English)
As the Weltmuseum Wien is currently closed to the public (due to the latest COVID-restrictions), we invite you to a special tour via Instagram Live.
The tour will lead us to our gallery ‘1873 – Japan comes to Europe’. We will have a look at the fabulous model of a daimyō residence of the Edo period (1600 – 1868), learn about tea ceremonies, the Nō theatre, and hear stories about people setting out to do good for themselves and for others. Slowness, immortality, beauty, mindfulness, tranquility, compassion and gratitude are the qualities that we come to grips with during this tour. The history of the Buddha, who regales us with his laughter, rounds off our shared journey.
