On June 12th 1990, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Egon Schiele, the town of Tulln set up a worthy memorial to its greatest son in opening the Egon Schiele-Museum. The museum is situated directly on the banks of the Danube in Tulln, in the former district prison. It was Egon Schiele's stay and his creation of ten striking drawings in the prison cell at Neulengbach that engendered the idea of renovating the former district prison as the Schiele-Museum.
Today you can see more than 100 original paintings of Egon Schiele in this museum.
