The Wien Museum’s Archaeological comprises some 150,000 objects. These have been recovered over an extended period of time that began with the city’s reconstruction in the late 19th century. It was at that time that the systematic process of safekeeping began, as well as documenting the local context of the find.

Throughout the decades, therefore, a rich repository of archaeological material has been built up so that information on the settlement of the Vienna region is now available reaching from the 6th century B.C. to the present day.
