Globenmuseum

Museum in The Hofburg & Around

Part of the Nationalbibliothek collection of museums, along with the Esperantomuseum and Papyrusmuseum (admission covers all three; audio guides are €2), this small museum situated inside a former palace (Palais Mollard) is dedicated to cartography. Among the collection of 19th-century globes and maps are some gems dating from the 16th century. Look for the globe made for Emperor Karl V by Mercator in 1541.

A combined ticket that includes the three museums plus the Nationalbibliothek Prunksaal and the new Literaturmuseum costs €15/12 per adult/child.
