The audioguide can be a bit too informative at times but gives a great deal of detail on many works. The Faberge eggs on display was a nice touch at Easter but the lighting could have been better. We have a 9 yr old and she enjoyed sketching several pieces as there was plentiful seating in the larger salons throughout.... More

Hubby's favorite European museum. Got to see it all this trip, with the addition of visiting Russian Faberge exhibit. Awesome.

Saw the Faberge Egg exhibit... Have lunch in the cafe which is in a gorgeous setting. Don't try to see it all in one visit. Spend the extra Euros to get the Audio guide.

This place is really bursting with artifacts! Exihibits are well segmented into different themes. You must get the audio guide in order to have a meaningful/informative day at the museum. They have a discount when you get two audio guides! :)

This art museum is extensive. The audio tour in English is a must. I wish that I could have had more time to have taken more in. Staff is helpful when I had a question.

I wish I had devoted more time to this museum. There was so much to see but we were on a time constraint so were not able to see everything. It was such a pity that in the end we just had enough time to walk through the many works of art without time to enjoy them in detail. I'm... More

Give yourself at least one-half day to enjoy the incredible treasures of the Kunsthistorisches. Definitely worth the time!

This is one of the finest collections of Old Masters in Europe..an amazing collection of amongst others..Titians, Bruegels, a superb Raphael, Caravaggios etc. The building is well worth a visit as well with a superbly ornate marble main staircase and cupola. Under this is a lovely café on the 1st floor. The museum is close to the Museums Quarter and... More
