The museum is truly spectacular and not nearly as overwhelming as the guidebooks try to paint it. There truly is something for everyone and a lot of surprising gems to be found, and the areas that have gotten a 'information overhaul' have some of the best descriptions (in German and English) I've seen in a museum. Few things to make... More

This is a fantastic museum in Vienna (Wien). If you appreciate fine art and particularly the old masters then you will enjoy a trip to this museum. Plan to spend at least 4 hours wandering around the museum. If you need to use the bathroom it is better to use the toilet on the upper floor instead of the bathroom... More

We walked into this museum with no preconceived notions. It wasn't even on our itinerary but it was worth the stop and I will go again any time I am in Vienna. It was astounding. Simply, the most beautiful museum I have ever been in. This is a must see!

Best Art Museum I was ever in! Breathtaking collection, wonderful interiors, brilliant artist packed on such big space. It's a must see. Prepare for 4-5 hours walk (take water with you!)

Too much too see, you can stay here for a day (... or even more). We bought a combined ticket and spend more than three hours in the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Since it was December, there was also a Christmas market infront the museum. There was a very interesting Velazquez exhibition. Besides this one cannot miss the Egyptian collection, the Greek...

We spent a whole afternoon exploring the exhibitions of the museum. All sections are very interesting with all the statues and artifacts - ancient Greek and Roman, Egyptian and Middle Eastern. The picture gallery is admirable with the masterpieces from many Italian, German and Flemish painters. There was a temporary special section, dedicated to the works of Diego Velazques. The... More

This is Vienna’s best museum by far, and one of the bests I have ever been to. They have pretty amazing collections and also the building architecture is really something to enjoy, this building was made not to be a palace but it was originally built to be a museum and still architecture is very nice inside and out. Make... More

The best part was that the museum was less crowded by the time we visited and because of which we had ample time to look around and go through all the paintings. Just as beautiful as its exteriors the interiors too are impressive in its layout and the collection. They have one after another famous masters and amazing collection from... More

We visited the specific museum a week ago during our winter vacations. The building and the exhibitions of the museum were full of interest and overall was a worthwhile experience.

A must see for any art lover, this, my third visit in many years, was a great delight. Some all time favourites, such as Bruegel's hunters returning in the snow, and the Klimt's above the stairwell. However, whilst there weren't that many people in the museum, (at least not if you try comparing with the National gallery in London, the... More
