The Kunsthistorische Museum is to be mentioned in one sentence with the Louvre, the Rijksmuseum, Prado and British Museum. Impressive collection of painints, sculptures, books, coins and many things more! Reserve the time to explore. But also if you are not so much interested in art - worth to have a peek!!

The museum is a nice walking distance from the shopping area and other attractions in Vienna. The museum has an excellent permanent collection (from mummies to modern art) as well as featured pieces. Gift shop is good. This is a place that you need 2-3 hours

More Breughel -- Elder, Younger, Son -- than anywhere I know of. And a well-organized display in a gorgeous setting. I spent the whole day and still saw only some of it. A perfect escape from the rain!

A real gem. The stairway alone could worth the visit. Everything spells beauty, grandeur, fine taste. We went there mainly for the picture gallery. It was an immense pleasure to walk trough beautiful halls, differing from colors but each with comfy sofa to rest a little while admiring the many masterpieces: Raffaello' Arcimboldo, Peter Brueghel the Elder among those to...

This museum is a must, it displays the full Habsburg collection across centuries and is one of the most impressive museum I have visited so far. The collection and quality of Egyptian, Greek and Roman statues is outstanding. The museum has been build for this collection and is just impressive from A to Z...

Good variety - we loved the art and the ancient history exhibits, cafe wasn't very user friendly though. LOVED the plentiful seating throughout the art gallery

The building alone already makes it worthwhile. The marble staircase, the Klimt frescos (look for the telescope in the first floor, to get an extreme close-up), the fancy café... everything is magnificent and will leave you in awe. The collection is equally spectacular, especially Vermeer's "The Art of Painting" (one of his signature works), Bruegel and Rubens displays. If you... More

I loved the Brueghel and the Rubens, but also the Rembrandt, Velazquez, Vermeer, Raphael and many other beautiful paintings. When you are tired, eat and/or drink in the beautiful restaurant of the Museum.

You need plenty of time and stamina if you want to enjoy all that there is to offer here. The collection is extensive and the setting is grand and impressive as you would expect of a palace created to house the treasures of an empire!
