Went to the museum and did not know there was an art fair in the -2 and -1 floor. Got in line for the tickets, when an older bearded guy approached us and gave us a free entry ticket for the art fair. Wonderful! And the Egon Schiele exhibition is marvelous!

I did not go to Leopold museum by day, but ended up there with some other backpackers at night on a Saturday, when they had a superb band playing live music and good beer at hand. A bit pricy, but worth it!

Schiele and Klimt galore. Some interesting copper masks. But too much empty space. Just a few items in each gallery. Floor after floor with no sense of layout apart from white space. The outside had art from students on display, the architecture is interesting, but so empty.

The Egon Schiele exhibition was excellent and detailed. The views of Vienna and the Mumok building were great.

The 5000 paintings collection was put together by Rudolph Leopold in the last century. That includes Klimt, Schiele or Kokoschka. It is worth visiting it.

This is not a populist museum and getting between the floors can be confusing. Having said that if you find Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt of interest, this is the place to go. The artwork is displayed in an easy manner with adequate space given to appreciate it.

This is a stunning exhibition space. It was my first visit. Both the permanent collection and the special exhibit at the time were carefully organized and brilliantly displayed. I particularly appreciated the way the museum attempts to locate the art in the context of the time in which it was produced. It's a little confusing getting from one floor to... More

The exhibition was mostly Egon Schiele with some Oskar Kakoschka, and Gustav Klimt thrown in for good measure. What was astounding were examples of the furniture and other ordinary items for daily living from the Wiener Werkstaette from the first couple of decades of the last century. This is a must see for your visit to Vienna if you like... More

You've been to the Belvedere, and seen The Kiss. But have you been to the Leopold? Check it out--it's definitely worth it, and the rest of the Museum Quartier is worth a look too!
