Impressed with the building, amazing.....then it was full of such a rich display of art & sculpture & crystal & gold..... beautiful. Loved that I could take photos, it was all worthy of being photographed.

This museum has a wonderful collection of European Art. It's well worth a look. Look for the Klimt frescoes. They are amazing.

This is a fabulous - and very large museum. Plan to spend an entire day just at the main museum and have lunch in the beautiful cafe. Also, be sure to get the audio tour, otherwise you won't necessarily know what you're looking at.

Excellent museum! Very nice atmosphere on the museums cafe. Very quiet even though the place was stormed by people due to the Romanof Faberge collection. Worthy to visit and try not to miss it chaps.

Give yourself enough time to enjoy the collection...and be SURE to check that it is open on the day you plan to visit (it often is closed).

What an amazing gallery. There is just so much to see that it bedazzles. The museum is spacious and ornate and this lend to the experience. The museum holds a great collection of Rubens as well as many Bruegel's. Even though it was peak season the gallery wasn't too crowded.

Yes the art is outstanding and yes the building is outstanding but these are a given in a world class art gallery. What it does have extra is the best situated museum cafe in the world.

First rate. Don't miss the audio guide - well worth the $4 charge. Comfy couches in each gallery made viewing the artwork enjoyable. Wish I had allotted more time to this place. A must see on any visit to Vienna.

Highly recommended as a must see while in Vienna. We had a wonderful day visiting the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Amazing mix of art and history. I loved all the displays and the thoughtful arrangement. The building itself is a work of art. This is the first time we’ve been kicked out of a museum at a closing time. My only disappointment...
