A couple of small rooms with some posters and a few interactive displays, not particularly well done. Almost no explanations about the language. Not worth the time.

Only visited it because I had it included in the ticket for the Globe Museum. It was a nice surprise. This museum presents you in about 15 minutes the history of an artificial universal planned language.

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks
such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),
Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’
former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as
Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse
and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
