Wonderfully grand surroundings. Super art work and regular "special exhibitions". Recently showed Faberge Eggs and Jewellery.

The building and the collection are well worth a visit. Both are extensive, and can be overwhelming. We have been three times, but anyone planning a single visit might want to do some research first depending on your interests. The newly renovated Kunstkammer section to the left of the rotunda is not to be missed. The collection in this section... More

The first thing we did was get a light lunch in the spectacular cafe housed in the rotunda of this grand museum. While our main goal was to see the Klimts and Schieles on display, it has other excellent examples of fine art from all over Europe (Middle Ages through the Romantic era), as well as some Ancient treasures (which...

The building itself is already an attraction. Enjoyed every part of the museum from the picture gallery to the egyptian collection. Glad I visited during my third stay in Vienna.

For one thing that the museum deserves an appreciation is the fact that the whole building in itself is beautiful and worth swooning over and then there is the collection itself. I loved the various dutch artists at the place and even the Egyptian collection was a delight to watch. Loved the whole display at the place as well as... More

This museum was, without a doubt, my favorite museum in the world (and i have been to s fair bit!) They currently have an ancient greek and roman exhibit that is phenomenal. The best part, though, was the automaton exhibit. These are all moving, working clocks that are so beautiful and intricate! On the sides of the exhibits are video... More

I'll be the first to admit I'm "not a museum person"; I dislike crowds of people, reading display cards, and walking around only looking with my hands behind my back. So when I plan a trip, I am really picky about which museums we bother going to, and often just skip many altogether that others usually consider "must-see". My only... More

Loved this museum - beautifully and thoughtfully displayed exhibitions of some of the worlds greatest treasures. We spent 4 hours there and still felt like we didn't have enough time. The building itself is also very impressive - definitely worth a visit to see so many famous pieces of art. Top tip - check your coat and store your bags... More
