Colour photo of the grave of Ludwig van Beethoven at Vienna Central Cemetery

Beethoven and his contemporaries

On the occasion of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, the exceptional artist and Viennese by choice, the Funeral Museum is now presenting a special exhibition that takes a special look at Beethoven's life and death.

Special highlights are the exhibited death masks by Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Schubert, which allow visitors a moving encounter with the individual death mask as the "last portrait", a captured expression on the threshold between life and death.

The exhibition also pays special attention to Beethoven's lesser-known companions such as Nannette Streicher, Anton Schindler and Stephan von Breuning and presents fascinating objects from Beethoven's most important companions, such as the invitation to Beethoven's funeral from the Funeral Museum's archives.
