The Bruegel exhibition runs from October 2, 2018 until January 13, 2019. The artworks on show in this special exhibition are so precious and fragile that we have to limit the number of visitors in the galleries at any one time.
Timeslots allow you to plan your visit in advance; these timeslots apply only to the special exhibition, not to your visit to the permanent galleries.
On January 12 and 13 the exhibition will be open 6.30pm till 1am. Timeslot tickets for these two evenings will be available from 9am on January 7, 2019 – both online and at the ticket office of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna.
Tickets are 20 Euro each, concessions 16 Euro. Annual Ticket-holders are entitled to a free timeslot ticket (subject to availability) or can reserve one online (reservation fee 5 Euro). Entrance for children under 19 is free and, if accompanied by an adult, they do not need a separate timeslot ticket.
Timeslot tickets for these two additional evening openings have to be booked in advance. On January 12 and 13, 2019 the ticket office will close at 6pm. On both evenings only the Bruegel exhibition will be open, the permanent galleries will be closed.

FAQ on Bruegel
For the special exhibition from 2 October 2018 to 13 January 2019 the Museum’s own collection is to be complemented by many significant international loans. Many of these works are so sensitive they have never been loaned before. Around ninety works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder are to go on show for the first time as part of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. To make your own experience at the Museum as pleasant as possible, the number of visitors to the exhibition is to be regulated, and you need to purchase a timeslot ticket.
The time-slot ticket regulates the time at which you are admitted to the special exhibition.
