“Museum Total”: Over 30 program items for the 10th anniversary

1 Ticket, 4 Days, 7 Linz Museums

(Linz, February 5, 2024) Once again museums in Linz are joining forces: from February 22 to 25, 2024, “Museum Total” offers the opportunity to explore seven museums and take part in special guided tours and exclusive workshops with just one ticket. The Ars Electronica Center, the Lentos Kunstmuseum and Nordico Stadtmuseum, the OK, the Schlossmuseum, the StifterHaus and voestalpine Stahlwelt are all taking part.

Mix & Match: Program Variety with Experience Character

Discover Austria’s largest crocheted coral reef in the Schlossmuseum, tinker with sustainable urban utopias in the Nordico Stadtmuseum and embark on an adventurous flashlight tour in the voestalpine Stahlwelt; these program items and many more can be tried out with just one “Museum Total” ticket. The StifterHaus offers an exclusive insight into Adalbert Stifter’s life, while the Open Studio at the Lentos Art Museum explores the design of the Danube of the future and the Ars Electronica Center takes visitors on an immersive 3D journey to Venice or through Anton Bruckner’s world of sound. At the OK, you can follow performance artist Carola Dertnig into her world of thought and experience Esra Gülmen’s first solo museum exhibition in a very personal way.

From Thursday to Sunday during the semester break, visitors have the chance to experience a colorful mix of activities – a museum rally entirely according to their own ideas. In other words, “Museum Total”.

Ticket Purchase and Discounts for Children

Interested people of all ages are invited to get to know the wide range of offers for 12 or 6 euros (children up to 14 years) per 4-day ticket. Admission is free for children under the age of six. The continued cooperation between “Museum Total” and the Family Department of the Province of Upper Austria offers a further discount: Children up to the age of 14 have free admission on presentation of the Upper Austrian Family Card.

“Museum Total” is a joint initiative of the City of Linz and the Province of Upper Austria with the Linz museums and the tourism associations of Linz and Upper Austria.


“One ticket, seven museums – for ten years, this has been an invitation to everyone to experience the highlights of Linz’s museums up close. Where else can you experience Anton Bruckner as well as a 3D journey to Venice or explore the voestalpine steel world with a flashlight? I am delighted that this offer is available again this year.“

Thomas Stelzer, Governor of Upper Austria

“Museum Total stands for the vibrant and networked cultural landscape in Linz. I am delighted that we are able to offer this joint initiative again and that so many cultural institutions are once again taking part. Being able to visit seven museums with just one ticket is a great offer that many people, especially families, take advantage of every year.”

Doris Lang-Mayerhofer, City Councillor for Culture, Tourism and Creative Industries

“The super cultural year 2024 with Anton Bruckner’s 200th birthday and the European Capital of Culture Bad Ischl Salzkammergut brings an enormous density of cultural offerings throughout Upper Austria. In this environment, ‘Museum Total’ is creating low-threshold access to culture for the important target group of families for ten years with adventure programs during the semester break. In addition, digital, AI-supported services offer a clear orientation aid in the diversity that makes up Upper Austria’s culture. The online cultural experience planner myKulTour from Upper Austria Tourism creates individually tailored excursion and travel plans.”

Andreas Winkelhofer, Managing Director of Upper Austria Tourism

“We are happy to realize ‘Museum Total’ with the Linz cultural partners and thus offer an attractive program for excursion and overnight guests in the often gloomy February.”

Marie-Louise Schnurpfeil, Managing Director Linz Tourism
