in detail

Cultural History Collection
The collection contains about 35,000 objects belonging to all domains of artistically designed lifestyle from the Middle Ages up to the present: testimonies of Styrian history, examples of aristocratic and bourgeois home décor, handcrafts made of metal, wood, ivory, ceramic, glass and textiles as well as a collection of wrought iron items, a collection of costumes and a collection of musical instruments.

Multimedia Collections
With over 2.5 million items in the inventory, the Multimedia Collections are among the most important audiovisual collections in Austria. Their photographic, audio and film documents are of historical, cultural, regional and technological relevance, and document Styria and its populace in transition to the digital age.
History Museum
Since May 2011, the Palais Herberstein has been the new home of the Cultural History Collection, at the ‘Museum im Palais’. It accommodates not only the permanent exhibition, but also the Collection’s temporary exhibitions. As of April 2017, the new History Museum combines the Cultural History Collection and the Multimedia Collection and presents the history of Styrian society from various perspectives from the high middle ages to the present.
