The layout of this museum is superb. Spacious saals create great experience for visitors to admire the beauty of each piece of artwork. The architecture of this museum wouldn't fail to impress you, with colorful frescos and stuccos. The museum cafe is not too pricey and very well decorated, and services were great.

Don't miss it. An incredible of late medieval, early modern paintings that will just blow you away. The real paintings that you have been seeing in books for years. Overwhelming and just spectacular. You could spend days here.

How can you even encompass this magnificent place in words? I guess it would suffice to say that for those of you that like history, culture, and shiny objects (like my girlfriend and myself), you will want to set up a tent in here and never leave. Ever. In all honesty however, the museum's collections are quite impressive. They have... More

We went for the Egyptian and Greek/Roman exhibits and enjoyed them. My husband had read a review which mentioned the collection of cameos, which was something. My husband really enjoyed the Egyptian collection--a bit of something from all the dynasties. We only had a couple hours at the end of the day by the time we arrived, so we were... More

Set in the Museum Quarter opposite the symmetrically designed Natural History Museum The Kunsthistorisches Museum makes a spectacular sight even from the outside particularly on a fine sunny day in early July. Inside you will find a very grand entrance area which is described very well on the Audio Guide which they supply free I found it takes a while... More

This museum has an amazing collection of Italian artwork, but also includes some items from the Hapsburg collection. I particularly loved that I could sit on a sofa and take my time gazing at the artwork

Spent a wonderful day at this first-rate art museum! Made sure I was first in line by turning up at the door at a quarter to ten. The gracious and welcoming staff handled the crowd of group and student visitors efficiently. Do get the audioguide (4 euros only) because the information given is different from the descriptions beside the paintings,... More

The selection of pictures, Durer, Rubens, Van Dyck. Many rooms, requires about 4 hours. Took many pictures, audioguide is good. In most rooms each picture has a paragraph of explanation.

Imagine a place that has just about every old master artist you have ever wanted to see, in a fantastic palatial building that is a work of art in itself, world class in every respect, comparable to the Louvre or Hermitage: that's the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum.
