Sitting in the corner of the Imperial stables this white cube of a building looks a bit out of place.Up the ramp and inside you enter a lofty white space lit from skylights and quite amazing. I felt there was a good overall mix of exhibits and felt Klimt was adequately represented, I liked some of his portraits.,I was new... More

Very good collection of Schiele art that you cannot see at other galleries in the world. And although there was only a one Gustave Klimt there was also a Monet and some very interesting paintings by lesser known artists. If you want to see more Gustave Klimt you should visit the Belverede which is a 20 minute tram ride from... More

The museum advertises in Vienna as "Klimt and Schiele collection". Well, this is somewhat misleading since there is basically just one Klimt masterpiece and the focus of the museum is on Schiele and other Austrian painters from the 19th and 20th century. Despite that, it's definitely worth visiting, if only to see Death and Life by Klimt. What a great... More

An education in one of the more entertaining side streams of modernism, the Leopold is a very well put together museum featuring a lot of art that was bleeding edge in its day. How amusing this will be will be directly related to your interest in the subject. We loved it!

This museum houses the world's largest collection of Egon Schiele works, as well as a number of Gustav Klimt works. I was expecting more artworks from both artists, but that did not detract from the overall collection. The staff are also nicer than at the Kunsthistorisches museum.
