Kunsthaus Bregenz KUB

Angelika Kauffmann Museum
Invisible from the outside, the 450 year old Building includes a modern exhibition room in the former economic wing. The modern room hosts annually changing themed-exhibitions with original works of the famous painter. The initial museum of local history was built in 1913. With the third relocation in 1928 the museum has found its place in the so called “Kleberhaus”, together with the Angelika Kauffmann Museum.

Hittisau Women’s Museum
Rumour has it, that particularly strong and self-confident women live in the Bregenzerwald. As a matter of fact some interesting traditions on this subject reinforce the assumptions, and the women’s museum specifically revives those traditions in its work. The museum exhibits the world (past and present) from a woman’s perspective. Furthermore, it critically demonstrates the confrontation of women with their natural and societal surroundings and the thereby resulting women-specific culture.
