Collection and library
One of the most important objectives of our museum is to chronicle the history of working people in and around Steyr. In this, we focus on a photo and document archive as well as a collection of videos relating to the various exhibition topics. Due to space constraints, we can only store a very limited number of three-dimensional objects that are closely associated with our exhibitions.
The photo archive counts more than 10,000 pictures with a focus on Steyr. Most pictures relate to the field of social and economic history. The document archive contains over 2,000 files, the majority of which is made up of personal documents from people’s work life. Moreover, we have a large semi-public specialised library and video archive.
