Cultural Patronage

Objects form the basis for each story told at the Weltmuseum Wien. Every piece in the permanent exhibition has been carefully selected, and is brought into context with other objects in the gallery in a number of unique presentations. As a Cultural Patron, you have the opportunity to undertake the cultural responsibility for one of these objects in a very personal manner.

In return for your commitment and support, we offer unexpected insights into our collections, and the opportunity to learn about the research conducted by our curators. And becoming a patron does not have a time limit – your name will forever be connected with your “godchild” in the museum’s electronic inventory.

Treat your loved ones to a very special gift – adopt an artwork for your children or grandchildren, or as a unique present to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary or a wedding. Join us and support art!
