What do we know about Roman Emperors, and how do we know what we know? Are there disparities between official historical accounts and the reputation bestowed upon them through centuries of cultural imagination and storytelling? How did Caligula, Nero, and Commodus become the poster boys for megalomania, for instance?
These intriguing questions are raised in this fascinating exhibition which examines how the image of historical figures becomes coined in the public consciousness. By bringing together thousands of coins from the holdings of the Coin Cabinet that bear the faces of antiquity's rulers, we are prompted to critically examine the clichés, myths, and anecdotes that have proliferated throughout history.
Visitors can study all the artifacts on-show using an interactive stele that provides detailed information and allows you to view the coins' obverse and reverse, as well as to enlarge them. 3D enlargements of selected coin portraits will also be displayed to allow for further examination.
Brush up on your fine art appreciation at one of Europe's premier art museums. Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Art History) is packed to its lavish rafters with masterpieces, ranging from antiquity to the Rennaissance. A total must for art lovers in The Imperial City.
Skip the line and clip-clop across pristine marble floors, up elegant gold staircases, and through bright halls emblazoned with intricate frescoes. The building's stately interior is the perfect space to flood the senses with artistic wonders.
Marvel at cursed time-worn treasures from ancient Egypt, and magnificent antique statues from Classical era Greece and Rome. Then see how Baroque and Renaissance masterpieces measure up in the Kunstkammer Wien - the cradle of the museum.
The Picture Gallery showcases stunning works such as Pieter Bruegel the Elder's Tower of Babel, Giuseppe Arcimboldo's Summer, Raphael's Madonna of the Meadow, and so many more.
The building's twin, located directly across Maria-Theresien-Platz, is the Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History Museum). It was opened at the same time as Kunsthistorisches Museum and is well worth a visit if you aren't all museumed out.
