ESSL Museum opens its doors again on June 7th
Recent severe flooding in Lower Austria has forced a number of museums and cultural institutions to close their doors to the public. The opening of the solo exhibition by Tim Eitel in the ESSL Museum in Klosterneuburg, which should have taken place earlier this week, had to be postponed.
The situation in the region has significantly improved and the management of ESSL has announced that the museum will re-open tomorrow.
