My 2 favourite museums are both in Vienna! The Sissi museum and this. I paid 15 euros for a youth entry ticket + English audio guide, and spent a whopping 4.5hours there ("Longer than the movie Interstellar!", my friend said.) Just the interior of the museum alone is enough to wow you - the intricate designs on the ceilings and... More

as per title the setting of the restaurant is admirable situated in the atrium of the museum. The food was no more than adequate but there was nothing wrong with it.

While the price of a ticket isn't that cheap, it's still a huge trove of old style art. Very impressive indeed.

Do not skip going to this beautiful building. Just the lobby and main staircase are amazing. The collections of paintings is impressive. Get the audio guide--it is well done and easy to use. Great visiting exhibits as well.

To my mind, along with the Prado in Madrid, this is the best gallery in the world. Outstanding Northern European and significant Spanish collections with the added bonus of Antiquity reminiscent of the British Museum. The Breughels Room is overwhelming and unforgettable. Devote at least one complete day but preferable two and be sure to have coffee and strudel under... More

We went to see the Velasquez exhibition that is currently at the museum. It was fantastic and we did not need to book i advance on a Sunday. I have been to the museum a lot of times over the years and always find something new to see. The Cellni Salt Cellar and the carved ivories in the collection are... More

The place for us was just amazing. Igi our son loved it a lot. First, we could dress up and pretend that we are kings and queens:) Then it got even better:) We walked from palace's rooms and enjoyed the place. We could touch everything. There was even a slide in the palace! Imagine that:) Igi sat by the table... More

This is a stunning museum. If you are interested in Egyptian, Greek, Hapsburg history (to name a few) you will be very impressed. Similarly the gallery on level 1 is quite excellent and amazing they have so much fit into one space. It is no short visit, so be sure to leave the whole day if you're the type of... More

I spent a lot of time here as a student. There are a lot of dark northern European paintings but a few gems, like the Raphael Madonna of the meadow. Parts of the museum were closed - part of the Italians, of course. The Klimt paintings in the stairwell are must-see!
