What is a time slot ticket?

Your time slot ticket permits you to enter the exhibition at a certain time. Once you have entered the exhibition, you are free to remain as long as you please. Your valid admission ticket also entitles you to visit the rest of the museum before and after your visit to the exhibition during the opening hours of the other collections.

At what time should I be where?

If you have booked a timeslot ticket, this determines the time for access to the special exhibition on the 1st floor. Please allow for an appropriate lead time for dropping off your cloakroom and getting to the 1st floor. We recommend arriving at the KHM 20 minutes before the start of the timeslot.

How do I get my time slot ticket?

With outstanding works by Dürer, Tintoretto, Sofonisba, Cellini, Rubens, Borromini and many more, the cultural autumn in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is launched. At the center of the exhibition is the competition among the artists themselves, but also with famous models, first and foremost Michelangelo. Numerous artistic confrontations from antiquity to the time around 1800 are traced and rival works are juxtaposed.

Booking a timeslot is required to visit the special exhibition.
