We went specifically to see the Valesquez show (a collection of his works from museums around the world). The exhibit was well presented, information and well staged. The building itself is absolutely grand with a giant staircase and wonderful pillars, statues, etc in the grand style. There is a cafe to enjoy a light lunch, coffee, desserts or a beverage....

The art is so beautiful it is breathtaking. We spent almost 6 hours at the museum and even though it was crowded, it is so large that we were not bothered by the crowds. Many of the exhibits were described in german and english

We wanted to see the Kunstkammer (Chamber of Art) exhibit which has all the wondrous, exotic curiosities that the royals/wealthy collected. The main item was Cellini’s Saliera (gold salt cellar from 1540) which is one of the only surviving gold sculptures of its kind. So many fascinating, beautiful items with the automatons being some of the best - videos showed... More

Best art display I've ever seen, with a wide range of artists. Good value for money at £14 and headsets and cloak-rooms available.

amazing museum but you will need plenty of time to do justice to the amount of art on display. The building is beautiful and would suggest taking the audio guide.

The Kunsthistorisches Museum's main moment of fame came when they managed to have a valuable little golden salt dish stolen by an amateur thief - subsequently, the director had to take his hat, much to the glee of the entire city. In addition, the country was left wondering how a little salt dish can cost so much. In terms of... More

One of the most important collections in Europe displayed incredibly well over 3 floors, my favourites being the Egyptian artifacts and the silver and golden treasures from various royal houses throughout the ages in Western Europe and beyond. The artistic rooms contain some of the most important pictures of Dutch, Italian and German origin - the works of Guiseppe Acrimboldo... More

One of the world's great art museums and a must see if you are at all interested in art. Or architecture for that matter - the building itself just takes your breath away. For us the Breugels, one of the world best collections, were the stars of the show. My only thought is that the museum could help identify some... More

Huge fine art gallery, with so many recognisable works. Un-stuffy atmosphere and a magnificent coffee shop and restaurant. What more could you want on a damp Saturday in November!
