In seven new exhibition rooms on 300 m2 the Museum Monastery Wilhering

provides an insight into its cultural heritage and the everyday life of the

Cistercian Monks. The monastic life is characterized by community and

spirituality. This duality is reflected in the museum's design by creating two

horizontal spheres: authentic handicraft represents the grounded basin of

fraternal humility, while cultural treasures are inspiring the detached spiritual

mind. In the shop and café area visitors can get in touch with the Cistercians.
