American Friends of the Vienna Museum

American Friends of the Vienna Museum is an organization of individuals and companies united by their love for Vienna, Austria, and Central Europe. Established in 2015, it is dedicated to the support of the Wien Museum, the city’s grand municipal institution, anchored at its hub on Karlsplatz and featuring eighteen outposts across Vienna. American Friends of the Vienna Museum seeks to help in the maintenance and expansion of the Wien Museum, including its collection of over a million objects, by raising public awareness and financial support in the United States. Headquartered in Chicago, American Friends of the Vienna Museum is also committed to serving as a forum for American-Austrian cross-cultural education.
