“Bonvenon” to the Esperanto Museum Discover the fascinating world of language invention and the faceted history of Esperanto spanning over 100 years in the Esperanto Museum at the Austrian National Library: from the publication of the first textbook in 1887 and its rapid spread before the First World War to its suppression during the time of National Socialism and, ultimately, its use today.

For years, I’ve been curious about Esperanto, so when I read about this museum in Vienna, I immediately added it to our itinerary. It’s admittedly tiny: my travel companion and I read absolutely every placard and tried all the interactive exhibits and were finished in...More

This is worth a very short visit if you've bought the combination ticket, including the Globe and Papyrus museums. I spent 15 minutes here, with it being directly downstairs from the Globe museum. Wouldn't ordinarily choose an attraction such as this, but once I went,...More

Maybe it's me, but I was a little underwhelmed by this. It was not very educational. It is very small and somewhat disorganized. It looks like a thesis project for a graduate student. I had heard of esperanto and when to see this hoping to...More

If you are looking for an interesting museum a little off the beaten track, visit the Esperanto Museum. It has a lot of history about the Esperanto movement as well as some surprising articles about the attempts to repress the Esperanto activities. There is also...More

This museum is on the ground floor of the same building that has the Globe Museum (upstairs). The entry is combined by default (4 euros per adult) and you cannot see this separately. Which is good because this is not worth the admission price by...More

The museum is pretty small but everything there is interesting and is well worth the entrance (which is very cheap). It not only gives you information on esperanto but other invented languages, for example you can hear an excert from hamlet in klingon. The ticket...More
