Worth a Visit

This museum is definitely worth a visit when you're in Vienna. The collection was great and it's a fantastic place to spend the afternoon.

This is a really dazzling building at the center of Vienna, interiorly as well as exteriorly! Besides that hosts a really impressive collection of paintings such as Flemish, Dutch French and Italian painters masterpieces (p.es Brueghel and Caravaggio). It was a great surprise since i didn't expect such a collection. It is really worth visiting! The museum cafe-restaurant is also... More

I know I'll be shot down on this but to me this was not one of the great art museums like the Prado. Much of this is personal taste - I just didn't like many of the artists represented. The Durer's were good and the Bruegel's fantastic, a nice Vermeer. There was also an outstanding lack of information against the... More

I will put this very simple, this museum is the Louvre of Vienna... after that you must know if you visit or not. If you still indecisive, what are three hours of your life to cultivate your mind? You will discover unique pieces which certainly deserved to be seen.

This will a long visit because there is so much to see. Rafael, Titian, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and many of the great masters. Also an excellent area of Roman, Egyptian and ancient artifacts. If you are lucky enough to be there on a cafe night and get reservations, you can dine amongst the masters and magnificent architecture.

The Egyptian and Roman/Greek antiquities area was huge and absolutely fascinating! Some great art too, particularly by my favourite German, Dutch and Flemish artists. The grand marble staircase is worth the trip alone!

A must see when in Vienna - even if only to look and stare at the Bruegel collection. Tip: Plan only one floor for a day, it is humanly not possible to cover the paintings, ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece and the other exhibitions on the same day.

I had read a lot about this museum and was very much looking forward to visiting. The Ancient Egypt, Greek and Roman department was well portrayed and interesting, although none of the explanations were in any other language than German, a small detail that makes a huge difference: I can understand some German, but this was out of my league...
