The town museum shows in its permanent exhibition the art collection of Rudolf Kemayr, the former owner of the house. He donated his house to the town of Rust in 1986. He was one of the co-founders of DONAULAND (an Austrian publishing house and book club).
Our visitors can see lovingly designed rustic furniture from Western Austria on two floors. An outstanding object is a tiled stove built in 1895 by the artist Koschka. It made a journey around the globe until it finally reached Rust as its destination. The stove illustrates a so-called poor man’s bible. There are also various paintings, tapestries and pieces of furniture that put the house in the perspective of the 17th century. In addition, the most important document of the town is exhibited – the Declaration of the Free City.
Throughout the year we change our exhibition according to the current season (Easter market, Christmas market), but also exhibitions of various artists contribute to our collection.
Visit our museum, you will certainly discover something.
Not only from the outside does the lavishly and lovingly restored townhouse show itself to be a jewel that unites history and art in a unique way.

The idyllic inner yard is gladly used for concerts and vernissages and provides space for about 80 people.
Rental charge upon request. The rooms will be decorated by our staff. (Price upon agreement)
