It costs about £10 to gain entrance and you need to be interested in 16th and 17th century painting to get any enjoyment. There are some classics here such as Durer's portrait of Jane Seymour. there are many Rembrandts and the Breugels are a joy.

First wow comes from the grand interior that greets you the moment you step into the museum. It truly was a beautiful place! As you step into the rooms with all the paintings, wow, you'll be amazed by how rich the stories of the paintings are. The audio guide was very useful. Get it! You'll appreciate the paintings better.

We spent 5 hours and I found it hard to drag the kids out. Amazing place, do not miss the kunstkamera. It's been recently innovated and when the adults are observing the collection, kids are playing with tablets that are situated in every hall. The buffet is great although a bid expensive. Be there and you will not be disappointed.

Sept 26 We decided to skip the free city tour offered by Avalon; instead we really wanted to visit this world-class museum while in our only full day in Vienna. We arrived early before opening. Hundreds of visitors also waited. To me most are tourists with Asians predominating. Once it opened at 10:00, we headed immediately to the Kunstkammer Collection... More

I spend a lot of time in museums, but this one may now be my favorite. For me, this visit was a full-day activity, and I honestly could have stayed longer. As with most museums. the picture gallery was swarming with tourists even on a Wednesday, but once I'd finished the pictures, I found myself in the cool, peaceful wings... More

This is Vienna's Louvre--same level/quality of art. Would take several days to see it all. Stunning.
