The Egon Schiele-Museum was planned in 1980. The jail in Tulln which was built in 1898 has been renovated for that reason. Schiele has been in jail in 1912. The opening of the museum was on June 12, 1990, because of the 100 anniversary of Egon Schiele's birth.
There are more than 100 objects shown in 12 rooms. 90 paintings of Schiele and many photographs of his life and his family are exhibited. On the ground floor there are pieces related to Schiele's Childhood in Tulln, as well as relics of his school-time in Klosterneuburg and his time as a student in Vienna. There are a lot of drawings by the young artists.
Famous paintings include Blick über verschneite Weingärten auf Klosterneuburg which Schiele painted in 1907, and the Old Mill from 1916
