The Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon

The Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon, equipment governed by the Metropole of Lyon exhibits works that trace the history of Lyon from prehistory (- 9000 BC) to the seventh century. It offers visitors one of the richest archaeological collections in France that addresses all chapters of the public and private life of a capital of the Roman Empire. The museum, which also manages several archaeological sites, including two Roman theaters, receives nearly 110,000 visitors a year.

The Strandingmuseum St. George

The Strandingmuseum St. George (STM) is part of De Kulturhistoriske Museer i Holstebro Kommune (The Cultural Historical Museums of Holstebro Municipality). The museum was founded in 1992. In 2015-17 the museum underwent a modernisation, and reopened in the spring 2017 in new buildings and with new exhibitions. The STM is a site specific museum located at the west coast of Jutland in the small fishing port of Thorsminde. The museum shares stories of dramatic shipwrecks along this perilous coast and of the local populations’ encounter with sailors, ships and goods from all over the world. The STM holds the maritime archaeological responsibility for a large part of the Danish waters in the North Sea, the western part of the Limfjord, and lakes and streams in a substantial part of Central and Western Jutland.

The Universalmuseum Joanneum

The Joanneum was founded in 1811 by Archduke Johann as Austria’s first public museum. Today it is considered the biggest of its kind in Central Europe. Science and history, as well as art and culture of Styria were the focal points of the Joanneum Collections around 1900 in terms of content. In the course of the 20th century this profile was extended and refined. About 4,9 million items in the collections form the basis of a richly faceted ‘universal’ exhibition and events schedule.
