Unless you have some special interest modern art this museum is avoidable completely. The art work is average and not meant to be seen by kids, some of it is even groce. The ticket is overpriced for the gallery. I vow to read up before visiting any such art gallery. Waste if time and money.

Really excellent museum with emphasis on Schiele and Klimpt as well as other less well known but excellent Austrian artists. Beautiful displays Bonus is great views from picture windows on top floors, and a lovely cafe in the Viennese style

The Leopold is a fantastically maintained and set out museum, filled with incredible art. Despite being a very popular destination, it never felt crowded or busy - wide open space and uncluttered art significantly helped this. Take the time to soak in as much as possible, but you should definitely take 10 minutes to sit in the chairs over looking... More

I was trying to "tuck" a visit to the Leopold in where I could fit it while I was in Vienna, so when I didn't make a tour I'd booked this morning I decided I'd escape the rain by spending a couple of hours in the Leopold before figuring out something else to do. I assumed everyone else would have... More

I call it the best as here you not only see paintings from a variety of Viennese artists from the golden age around 1900, you have many paintings by Egon Schiele, Klimt's Life and Death plus Klimt's studio and applied arts items from the same era. And this year it's one of the places where there are special exhibitions about... More

I am not an art expert but I do enjoy art exhibitions and this one is very well presented. A great opportunity to leant about the work of Klimt, Shiele, Kubin etc. in a well structured gallery. Not over-powering and lots of well presented detail and explanation without an audio guide. Nice space, well lit. A good gallery, well worth... More

We visited here on a free afternoon while on a river cruise...it was an amazing place, we were also lucky to see a wonderful time-limited exhibit on drawing in addition to the permanent collection. My husband is a graphic designer so there was extra appeal for this exhibit. I knew before we went that it has a small Klimt collection,and... More

I was recommended the Leopold as THE museum to see in Vienna. I have traveled across Europe and seen many museums and art galleries and I felt this left me unsatisfied. It is centered around Egon Schiele's work. Which is good, but the rest seems poorly executed. The layout seems confusing and has no direction. Don't waste your time getting... More

Great museum to see the work of Egon Shiele and Gustav Klimt. Excellent collection of the art work. The museum itself is beautiful. I enjoyed shopping in the gift shop and we enjoyed the café in the museum.

This is a very special museum and art gallery combined in that it combines some outstanding works of art by Egon Schiele with a wide range of exhibits, multi-media experiences that bring to life Vienna at the close of the 19th Gentury and the beginning of the 20th Century. There is film of a tram ride through Vienna at this... More
