Liechtenstein National Museum in Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein National Museum in Vaduz, Liechtenstein
The Liechtenstein National Museum is home to a permanent exhibition showcasing the history and culture of Liechtenstein as well as a number of temporary exhibitions. The Postage Stamp Museum in Vaduz is affiliated to the National Museum and displays artefacts and documents relating to the postage service in Liechtenstein. There is also a local history museum in Schellenberg giving an insight into life in the Principality around 1900.

Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein is a museum of modern and contemporary art at the heart of Vaduz. The museum building, opened in 2000, a black cube with a subtly reflective façade, sends out a strong message to the outside world. Inside, spacious exhibition rooms stretch out over two levels, of which the upper one receives daylight through a glass ceiling. The profile of the collection of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, which is at the same time the state art collection of the Principality of Liechtenstein, is specifically defined by three-dimensional artworks: sculptures, installations and objects. A particular emphasis is on arte povera and post-minimal art. The collection is showcased in temporary presentations accompanying the major changing exhibitions of international 20 – and 21st-century art.

The new Hilti Art Foundation exhibition building was added to the Kunstmuseum in 2015. This important private collection from Liechtenstein comprises outstanding works of classical modernism and contemporary art. 130 years of art history are thus waiting to be experienced and discovered at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.
