There are several museums in Vienna, but this is an important one (if not the most important). Impressive collection of paintings covering a broad time span, very well presented (in a classic way). The building itself is a work of art!! Elegant coffee-shop at the center of the second floor. Rather reasonable ticket price - free for teens and children.... More

Once we found the art museum all was well- but we had to find it first. The signage is very poor and one docent didn't know what museum the "Art" was in. Once we got there, though, we were blown away! The Rubens alone where overwhelming! The collection of art was astounding and gave us pause for wonder at how... More

What a superb gallery. The building with its marble stair case is wonderful if nothing else it is worthwhile just to see the interior of the gallery. And you will be in 7th heaven if you are an art lover. Every great artist in the world is displayed there. We have visited all the major galleries in the world and... More

Although the art collection can't compare to the museums in Rome, Florence,Madrid and other cities, it does have a beautiful and diverse collection from many masters. We spent a little over two hours just in the painting galleries. It's worth a visit and is a nice repast from the myriad of other typical tourist attractions. The museum has lockers for... More

I am a pretty lazy traveller so I often do not do lots of research before visiting a place. So it was a pleasant surprise to find a complete Egyptian collection there. They even have real (I think, according to the self help audio) mummy displayed in the casing, which is pretty creepy. The collection is extensive! I allocated 3... More

One of the world's foremost collection of Old Masters, the picture gallery includes paintings by Durer, Cranach, Raphael, Titian, Pieter Bruegel the elder, Vermeer, Rembrandt, Rubens and Velazquez. Precious works made of gold, silver and gemstones, bronze, ivory and marble. A cultural highlight of any visit to Vienna.

This is one of the world's best museums. Superb Egyptian collection and Breughel paintings of particular appeal to me. As with ALL museums on this scale allow plenty of time OR be selective in what you go to see - otherwise exhaustion will set in.

Not a great start. The entrance/ticket office areas were too small to cope and the ticket machine on our side didn't work, so it took 15 minutes to get in. Then we had to dump a rucksack, which meant (as the lockers were all in use) waiting for someone to return to collect their stuff. We loved the Greek, Roman... More

If you go to only one museum in Vienna, this should be it. usually after one to one and a half hours in a museum, I am ready to go. Here, four hours passed without my noticing. wonderful collections of Rubens, Velasquez, Bruegel. I thought the paintings were the highlight, but they have very nice exhibitions from ancient Egypt and... More

Went here primarily for the marvellous collection of Breughel paintings. There are also some splendid Reubens. Many Old Masters are represented in this wonderful museum, which is pleasantly uncrowded.
