Not for the faint hearted. It is a small collection with a handful of stand out pieces, and a number which do challenge the visitor. The current Cathy Wilkes visiting exhibition is bleak and baffling. I confess I left pondering how the pieces which span 11 years fitted together, though the large exhibition space worked really well. The permanent audio... More

I'm a huge modern art enthusiast so I had a great time here. For 2 Euro you can get an audio tour. It's a relatively small collection but provides insight on Austrian artists. Lighting is natural wherever possible providing good lighting for the pieces. On the first floor is a small collection of up and coming Austrian artists. I appreciate... More

If you love trash art, you visit the right museum by visiting lentos. The visit of various exhibitions of international and national artists sums up to that perception.

This museum of modern art, really is modern. I did not understand much of the art we saw, but the facility was very interesting.

This is a complete waste of money. A huge building with nothing in it apart from a few pieces of modern art which are absolutely terrible. There is an entry fee of €8 which is a complete robbery. Cloakroom and toilets are in the basement and the exhibition area is on the first floor. Avoid this place at all costs.... More

It's an art museum...If you like modern contemporary art you may find this interesting...If like me you don't then this may not be your cup of tea. The building itself is very striking architecturally, particularly at night. Nice setting too just by the mighty Danube. There is a decent cafe on the ground floor to add. Personally that would be...

This fabulous building which house the Museum of Modern Art, is lit up at night. On the other side of the river to the main town it vies for attention at night.

The building itself is unique as it is nestled among some of the original houses of Urfahr (the other side of the Danube) overlooking the not so blue but rather brown Donau. The exhibits within the structure are very unique, one of a kind experience which will make u think outside of the box. Each floor offered a different exhibition... More

Explored this museum during riverboat cruise stop. Main exhibits on upper level; lower level more like amateur artwork. Mosbacher was very interesting. Rented the headset for more detailed commentary re left side of museum artworks/portraits/sculpture; also used portable seat. Wish headset info had included commentary re Mosbacher, et al exhibits on right side of museum!

This gallery does not meet up to it's own, and others ' advertising. The blurbs we had read and the vids one can see of the Lentos illuminated at night led us to have high expectations. Unfortunately the gallery is well below expectations. The building inside is a concrete warehouse, dull , bland ,unstimulating and a very poor venue for... More
