Museum of Art Fakes

Museum of Art Fakes


Löwengasse 28

1030 Wien


Another of the capital’s private museums takes an occasionally sideways look at the world of art forgery.

Located opposite the Hundertwasserhaus in the third district, the Museum of Art Fakes tells the tale of spectacular criminal endeavors by notorious counterfeiters, and uses various entertaining devices to show visitors how to spot the difference between originals, copies and fakes. It doesn’t necessarily take an encyclopedic knowledge of art to fully appreciate the 80 or so exhibits on show at the museum.
