Prater Museum in the 2nd district close to the giant Ferris wheel

Grotesque, poetic, Viennese!

Not just for tourists! A bizarre museum with groundbreaking entertainment!

Here you find objects such as the fortune teller automat “Internationales Heiraths Vermittlungs Bureau” (international marriage arrangement bureau), the legendary ventriloquist’s dummy Maxi, which inspired the Viennese comedian Helmut Qualtinger, or a lindworm from the long demolished fairytale grotto. Grotesque, poetic, Viennese!
