The GrazMuseum is the culture-historical museum of the city of Graz. It´s collections and exhibitions reflect upon the history and presence of the city.

Present-day History

Museums give knowledge that has become placeless a place in real life again. The GrazMuseum as a historical museum is obliged to be decidedly contemporary; hence it always looks at history from a present-day perspective and communicates it with the formal means of today.

A Forum for Urban Subjects

The city museum is a platform for contemporary urban subjects that make us feel like dealing with and perceiving the city. It is a space for investigating and discussing contemporary urban subjects. The GrazMuseum as a permanent identity laboratory continuously looks for both scientific and artistic answers to the question how reasonable, not irrational, identity can be found at all in the more and more complex society of a “Europe of the Regions”.


The museum is a visitor-oriented but by no means populist place. In the GrazMuseum as an open place for cultural participation, local experiences can be organised as a resource for social processes.
