THE AUSTRIAN NATIONAL LIBRARY’S GLOBE MUSEUM

THE AUSTRIAN NATIONAL LIBRARY’S GLOBE MUSEUM, HOUSED IN THE SPLENDID AMBIENCE OF THE BAROQUE Palais Mollard in Vienna’s inner city, is THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND WORLDWIDE. The exhibition area presents more than 250 objects, including exclusive terrestrial and celestial globes, lunar and planetary globes, as well as planetariums, lunariums, tellurions, and a number of astronomical instruments.
The focus is on terrestrial and celestial globes made before 1850, a field in which the museum holds one of the largest globe collections in the world.
