Vorarlberg Museum

Top choice museum in Bregenz

Following a three-year, €34 million makeover, the Vorarlberg Museum reopened in June 2013 to much acclaim. Its striking new home is a white cuboid emblazoned with what appears to 16,656 flowers (actually PET bottle bases imprinted in concrete). The gallery homes in on Vorarlberg's history, art and architecture in its permanent exhibitions, including one on the Roman archaeological finds of Brigantium. It also stages rotating exhibitions, such as recent ones spotlighting the Bregenzer Festspiele and mining in the Eastern Alps.
