Nudist tour in Leopold Museum

The Leopold Museum in Vienna is offering a "nudist tour" through its successful exhibition "Naked men" today evening (Mon). Only naked people are allowed on the tour.

Fans of nudism have now the chance to stroll through a museum without wearing clothes. Several groups and tourists have recently asked the Leopold museum whether they offered nudist tours.

The management of the museum decided to fulfil their wish and is now offering a nudist tour today at 18.00. The number of participants is limited to 30 people. Only nudists are allowed to join, as the museum wants to prevent voyeurs to take part.

The exhibition "Naked men" is a great success in the history of the museum.

Not only the number of visitors but also the reports in the media are astonishing. More than 1,000 media reports in different languages were counted. Posters around Vienna with naked football players polarized. The naked "Mr Big"-sculpture in the main court of Museumsquartier in Vienna was even damaged.

Those who want to see the exhibition will have time until 4 March. However, they will have to keep their clothes on.
