Accessible Caravaggio & Bernini

Caravaggio’s paintings and Bernini’s sculptures arouse strong feelings, and we want all audiences to experience these emotions. We offer a special pre-visit introduction for visitors with impaired hearing: a video in ÖGS (Austrian sign language) and IS (international sign) invites visitors to learn more about the exhibition before their visit.

We also offer videos in sign language exploring two important works by Caravaggio in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. If you want to join an accessible guided tour of the exhibition please contact Rotraut Krall (
