The Regional Museum Lienz with its Albin Egger-Lienz Gallery is located in the venerable walls of Bruck Castle
Bruck Castle, impressive residence castle of the Counts of Gorizia, is owned by the Town of Lienz and houses the Regional Museum. Furthermore, the inner courtyard is often venue for theatre performances and concerts, such as the well-known event "Kultursommer Schloss Bruck".
The Regional Museum Lienz (Museum der Stadt Lienz) houses the Egger-Lienz-Gallery (1868-1926), one of the biggest public collections of the East Tyrolean expressionist - together with the ones of the Leopold Museum in Vienna and the Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum in Innsbruck. His paintings illustrate art between the poles of modernity, abstraction and regional art. Bruck Castle also shows contemporary art in the new adapted western wing, and the younger past of the town in the donjon - in collaboration with the "Tyrolean Archive of Photography" (TAP).
However, beside the Art Collection the museum presents three additional thematic areas. The Archaeological Collection shows prehistoric and protohistoric findings from the area and from Aguntum near Lienz. In addition, there are the Folkloristic Collection with East Tyrolean objects such as traditional costumes and looms, and the Nature Collection with minerals and various animal preparations. From the parking space at the foot of the castle hill, a path takes you in five minutes to the museum which was awarded the Austrian Museum Quality Seal.
