The Josef Hoffmann Museum, situated in the house where the artist was born in 1870, has been run conjointly by the Moravian Gallery in Brno and the MAK in Vienna since 2006. The museum hosts temporary exhibitions featuring themes related to Hoffman and his circle aimed at keeping the life and work of this pioneering Austrian architect alive in the public consciousness. After his parents died in 1907, he refurnished his family’s Baroque town house using it as an experimental arena for his design ideas.

The changes comprised a rearrangement of his parents’ surviving late-Biedermeier household goods and template-based wall decorations as well as wooden décor and furniture additions inspired by Hoffmann’s designs for the Wiener Werkstätte. Since the completion of the restoration in 2004, the interiors of the Josef Hoffman Museum showcase the architect’s vision of a modern home style.
