Lipizzaner Museum

27 03 2007

The Lipizzaner Museum in Vienna “offers a comprehensive and fascinating survey covering over four hundred years from the sixteenth century to the present using paintings, engravings, drawings, photographs, uniforms, harnesses, as well as video and film presentations.” There are some lovely photos and a nice online gift shop as well; it’d definitely be worth a stop if you’re ever in Austria!
