03Liechtenstein Museum, Vienna (by Ernst Gamauf)The Liechtenstein Museum in Vienna, Austria contains much of the art collections of its owners, the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, rulers of the principality of Liechtenstein. They include important European works of art, forming one of the world’s leading private art collections. Its highlight used to be Leonardo’s portrait of Ginevra de’ Benci.The museum, which was open to the public until the Anschluss of 1938, had various locations, including the Liechtenstein Garden Palace in the IX District Alsergrund, Vienna, and the Liechtenstein City Palace in Bankgasse, Vienna. It was reopened on 29 March 2004 and, after battling with low visitor numbers, was closed for regular visiting by the public in November 2011. According to the official website, „the highlights of the princely collections can be viewed exclusively as part of an event package or a pre-booked guided tour”.
