Krems is increasing it's appeal through the new State Gallery. At the same time research is essential for the insight and experience of the visitors. The Department of Art and Cultural Studies of the Donau-Universität is immensely important for the museum as a central player. The State Collections of Lower Austria are as well concerned with comprehensive research assignments and appear together with the Donau-Universität and the new State Gallery. Those task sharing and collaborations are crucial factors for the furture offering of this art location.
