MUSEUM HOURS is a drama set in and around the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, in which a woman forms a relationship with a museum guard.

Sex

Moderate sex references occur in a sequence in which the guard draws an analogy between 'soft porn' and some of the paintings in the museum collection. To illustrate his point the camera then focuses on a painting in which a man squeezes the exposed breast of a woman. The scene also includes a passing reference to 'Internet porn'.

Nudity

Many other paintings in the museum feature female breast nudity, but there is little or no sexual context. In another scene, a picture of a topless female model is seen pinned to the wall of a Viennese bar.

Natural nudity is also briefly seen when patrons of the museum are shown wandering about naked.

There is a montage of paintings depicting women holding severed male heads. The images, however, are not particularly grisly.

Very mild language in the film includes the terms 'god' and 'ass'.
