    At the Globe Museum you'll find an impressive collection of globes, offering a unique way to understand how we've viewed the earth throughout the centuries. Meanwhile, the Esperanto Museum tells the story of the world's most successful planned language, and the history of invented languages and where they're still spoken today.

    The Globe Museum

    Alongside various historical and ornate depictions of the earth, you'll be able to look at various celestial globes of the moon and other planets, as well as various astronomical instruments. 

    Among the highlights of this fine collection is a globe by Gemma Frisius which dates back to 1535 (making it the oldest globe in Austria and one of the oldest globes in the world) and a virtual globe where you can overlay current maps on top of a 16th-century one, to compare how far human knowledge has come.

    While you're here, be sure to check out the Gold Cabinet. This room contains impressive Baroque paintings by Andrea Lanzani, and is home to a collection of globe-related instruments such as armillary spheres, planetariums and telluriums.

    Audioguides are available in German and English for an additional €3.

    The Esperanto Museum

    The innovative exhibition includes major publications, objects, posters and archive records documenting the presence of Esperanto around the world from its creation in 1887 right up to today. 

    Whilst Esperanto is the most successful planned language its far from the only one, and the exhibition also features everything from the late 11th-century mystical language, Lingua Ignota to the late 1900s Star Trek cult classic, Klingon. 

    As you journey through the displays you'll find the Austrian National Library's Esperanto Museum answers all your questions and more about the history of human language and the decisive tactics involved in deliberately creating one.
