Spacious, beautifully laid out, over 5,000 great works of art I would have travelled to Vienna just to see this museum - one of the galleries that I have most enjoyed in the world.

It's a really nice museum -one of the nicest museum I've ever been to actually- and it should be visited especially by the fans of Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt. I've been there 3 times and never been bored! Also it has a very nice cafe inside, a good place to take a break and eat&drink while having a tour... More

The Museum Quarter is itself already an interesting place to spend the day with a few art museums (notably Kunst Historisches Museum Wien and Albertina) and an incredibly number of attractions scattered so near to one another the temptation is to see all of them in a single day! Buy combined tickets like the one to visit both Leopoldo Museum... More

One of the busier museums in Vienna but its popularity is understandable as it is well laid out, with a lovely collection and wonderful cafe/bar. I definitely recommend.

We enjoyed the large and impressive collections of Schiele and Klimpt as well as many other works. The museum has a lovely layout making for a pleasant visit. There is a cafe on the second floor which affords a welcome respite during the visit.

We loved the Leopold Museum in the Museum Quartier and especially loved that there was a Giacometti exhibit on there. Also an Egon Schiele exhibit. The Giacometti exhibit was very impressive and extensive, offering at least 6 or 7 galleries, videos too. Nice cafe as well. We had a lovely lunch there. Highly recommend this museum!

How lovely to be able to stroll through a museum and take in the works of art without the hustle and bustle and crowds of people with rucksacks and mobile phones getting in the way. Leopold beats that for Tate Modern any day.

It was very exciting to see such an Art. I was hoping to see more Gustav Klimt's paintings and it was a small disappointment for me, as there were only a few of them. Great Schiele's exhibition which I can fully recommend. On the top floor there is a room with beautiful view. You will not regret for sure.

Dear Visitor, thank you for your feedback. We emphasized mainly on Schiele and Klimt. Our collection is hosting the largest Schiele collection worldwide, with 41 paintings and 188 works on paper. Indeed our Klimt collection is smaller, but his works in our museum are not to be underestimated. As a matter of fact, our collection comprises not less than 8... More

Excited to visit my all time favorite artist, the commercial of the museum reported Klimt and Schieles' art but I would say mainly Schiele. Regardless of the beauty of Schiele, the museum advertised Klimt and Schiele instead of Klimt art there were only 9 pictures and only two of the most important. I also found very confusing the layout of... More

Dear Visitor, We are sorry that your visit of the Leopold Museum did not fully meet your expectations. Indeed, we emphasize on Klimt and especially on his unchallenged masterpiece Life and Death in our advertisements for the museum. Although Klimt is, as opposed to Schiele, less present in our permanent collection, his works in our museum are not to be... More
