Museums & Expositions

Museum Arbeitswelt

Founded in the course of the national exhibition "Arbeit-Mensch-Maschine" (Work-Man-Machine) in 1987, Austria's first labor museum has developed into an internationally renowned exhibition and cultural center. Inspired by the Grabe-wo-du-stehst movement, the museum is still a place of learning, a knowledge space, a discussion forum and a communication space. A house of contemporary engagement with the past, present and future of our society.
In 2021, the Museum Arbeitswelt will be part of the Upper Austrian provincial exhibition ARBEIT WOHLSTAND MACHT.

City museum I Innerberger Stadel  

Innerberger Stadel was built as a granary and warehouse in 1611. Today, the historic building houses the Municipal Museum of Steyr. The historic storehouse is a two-gable Renaissance building with facades that are lavishly decorated with sgraffitto. Steyr was at the heart of Austria's iron industry for centuries and the legacy of this thriving trade is on display at the Museum. Exhibits include folk art collections, a nail forge, the Steinparz Bird Collection and weapons from the production of industrialist Josef Werndl.

In 2021, the Innerberger Stadel will be part of the Upper Austrian provincial exhibition ARBEIT WOHLSTAND MACHT.

 

Schloss Lamberg

Lamberg Castle first appeared in historical documents as "Stirapurch" in 980. The remains of the former fortress can only be seen in fragments of the mighty bailey. In the 11th century the Castle was the residence of the Otokar Dynasty. In 1727 the whole structure was destroyed by a great fire. As a result the Castle was completely rebuilt in lavish Baroque style by the Counts of Lamberg. The Lamberg Castle Library and the precious sandstone figures can be admired in the castle´s inner courtyard.

In 2021, the castle Lamberg will be part of the Upper Austrian provincial exhibition ARBEIT WOHLSTAND MACHT.

Tunnel of Remembrance

A few metres away from the Arbeitswelt Museum, the exhibition shows the destructive interplay between the national socialist invasion policy, arms industry, forced labour and systematic destruction of human lives. The exhibition approaches the topic via biographies and displays personal descriptions, historical photos as well as written documents.
