The abbey museum

A journey of discovery through nine centuries

For almost 900 years Neustift Abbey has been a religious, cultural, academic and not least a commercial centre that exerts a powerful influence outside its walls. Valuable works of art from the Middle Ages and Early Modern Age as well as globes, maps and historical scientific instruments can thus be seen in the abbey museum. Two new museum rooms that were opened in 2021 are devoted to the school tradition and economic history of the abbey.

The Late Gothic altar panels from the abbey church, including St Catherine’s altar by Friedrich Pacher, are a particular highlight of Neustift’s art collections. Among the other treasures on display are the beautifully illustrated manuscripts from the abbey’s own scriptorium.
