Protestant Diocesan Museum Murau

The early Baroque church of St. Elizabeth emerged from the Gothic chapel of the former Bürgerspital (community hospital) in Murau, erected by Otto III of Liechtenstein. The Protestant Church of Murau and the Protestant Diocesan Museum of Styria have been housed here since 1979.

The Protestant Diocesan Museum in Murau has reopened in a new guise and invites all those with an interest to learn more about the Protestant church in Styria. It boasts an interesting space concept, with information distributed across several levels, providing ample opportunity to wander through this museum. Its modern educational and methodical approach makes it easy for visitors to seek out whatever they are particularly interested in.

Children and young people are given age-appropriate information about the content of the exhibition. Visitors can wander through the exhibition by themselves or spend some time at the media stations; however, guided tours and of course connections with other museums in the region are included in the visitor services.

Adults: € 5.00
Young people up to 15 years: € 3.00
Students: € 3.00
Groups (per person): € 3.00
