Approximately 30 minutes later and to the cheers of screaming fans, a woman in wrap-around sunglasses stepped out of a limo with five massive bodyguards in tow – but the museum employees were skeptical.
"She was too thin for Beyonce," Dahlitz said. "I thought she had probably lost weight."
Regardless of their doubts, the staff reportedly gave the woman a VIP tour of their collection.
Later, the museum was informed that the woman was, in fact, not Beyonce, but actually a look-a-like hired by local radio station, Krona Hit Radio.
"We were fooled," Dahlitz admitted while still seeing the positive side of the radio station's stunt. "We must be the most important museum in Vienna… because they chose us!"
A rep for Beyonce could not be reached for comment when contact by the mag.
