This museum bills itself as the major collection of work by Klimt and Schiele. In fact, there is surprising little Klimt (try the Belvedere for that) and the explanatory captions try too hard to make Schiele a more important figure than he is. We found it disappointing.

I obviously went for Schiele, because I absolutely, absolutely love his work. But, being in Vienna for only four days, I could set aside only two hours to see it. Turns out I ended up making time to go back the next days for another three, because the 'Wally' exhibit was exhilarating. As expected, the works I loved; the story... More

The highlights of this museum are the Klimt and Schiele paintings but nothing else. A slew of not so famous Austrian artists from the 1920-30's are also exhibited but are not worthy of museum space. Special exhibtions near the entrance of museum are also not that great. Although this museum is 15 years old, they have little to offer artistically... More

If you into Austrian painters like Sciele, Klimt, Kokoschka this place is not to miss - also the bar/coffee/restaurant is nice to visit

Really enjoyed trip to this museum which we nearly bypassed for some of the bigger museums in Vienna. Not too busy on Sunday. Enjoyed the life story element of the art/ artist models and the relevance to the cities history. Highly recommend for those looking for some fresh art after/instead of that found in the older museums

I love the Tate Modern in London, and was hoping for something similar if smaller scale here. I was disappointed. The building itself is ideal for the job, but most of the space is taken up by just a few artists and I found none of them very inspiring, particularly the Tracy Emin material which takes up several rooms and...

Dear Fandango11, thank you very much for taking the time to give us a rating. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed by your visit at the Leopold Museum. We realize that Tracey Emin evokes many different reactions with her art, which is exactly why we are happy to be exhibiting her work. We completely understand your critique... More

Opened to public in 2001, this precious museum allows you to breathe the incredible atmosphere circulating in Vienna in the first decades of the 20th century. Egon Schiele is even on the ticket (12 euro adults, no relevant discount if you use the Vienna Pass) and so is Klimt. Each kind of artistic avant-garde of the dawn of 20th century... More

I enjoyed this gallery 6 levels of art and a level with a cafe. A large collection of work from Egon Schiele who isn't my favourite artist but his story was interesting. It focuses on his relationships with Wally Neuzil, Klimt and his influence on Tracey Emin who has a display there currently. Worth a visit.

We spent the afternoon viewing the art collection in this museum. It is located in the Museum quarter. The building is a modern building that was opened in 2001 and made especially to hold art collections. The museum houses the former private art collection of Rudolf and Elisabeth Leopold. It covers the Vienna Secession Movement and Expressionism during the early... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
