Collecting tradition

Admont Benedictine Abbey can look back on a long tradition of collecting items on natural history and art history. With the opening of the new museum in 2003, it has expanded its activities with a view to the co-creation and reflection on contemporary art in the future. The curatorial focus of the collection is on Austrian contemporary art, expanding it with international art and the targeted promotion of artistic productions.
