    What is the purpose of the bidet? How does the spiral work and what does Coca Cola have to do with contraception?

    Since 2007, the first and only museum in the world dedicated to contraception and abortion has been investigating these issues.

    Using objects, images and stories, the MUVS tells the painful battle for fertility control. Starting from antiquity, through the Middle Ages to the present day with an outlook on the future, medical, political and social developments are documented and discussed.

    About 100 years ago, fertility still meant that a woman's life was characterized by an average of about 15 pregnancies, 10 births and 8 children. In a long and arduous process, people first had to learn to adapt this natural level of fertility to the number of children they wanted. This is the only reason why today we can live our sexuality and fertility in many places with self-determination.

    A visit to the MUVS is touching, moving and astonished. Maybe you'll go out a little more thoughtfully than you came in.

  • MUVS panel discussion - 40 years deadline solution Play all

    Broad alliance of women experts calls for the abortion of pregnancy to be removed from the penal code.

    Medical abortion in self-medication and Internet commerce require a change in the law anyway.

    The deadline solution seemed to be cemented after 40 years, and now the debate is moving into motion. That was 40 years' resolution at the panel discussion, on 26 May 2015. At the invitation of the Museum for Contraception and Abortion (MUVS) in the full education centre of AK Vienna. On the podium, national and international experts critically examined the Austrian model of the deadline solution. In unison, they demand that the law be adapted to medical and socio-political developments.
