This museum visit can give you a taste of many of the various local more modern artists. Particularly impressive was the Alberto Giacommeti - not a local but his large sculptures are extremely well presented- heads up to the curator- it was a wonderful experience to stand in the room with his giant sculptures- worth going to the museum just...

Based on the art interests of a couple of private collectors, this museum was a surprise and outstanding. It featured Austrian artists, some who had been banned during the war, and had a special exhibit on Giacometti, Egon Schiele, and others. See it.

The Leoplold Museum is a unique collection of Austrian excellent modern art. From a private collection it has turned into a national great museum. The Egon Schielle and Gustav Climt collections are unique and very interesting. We enjoyed it a lot. Yael & Shahar

The museum has really good pieces of art. I enjoyed a lot the experience. BUT, if you are expecting like the ads say "an extensive collection of Klimt"... don't count on it. The downside of the museum is the way they arranged (mixed up) the artists and their works. BEWARE: The kiss is not in this museum but you can... More

The Leopold is in the very heart of the Museum district in Vienna and houses a great collection of twentieth century art that is presented in an accessible way with out being overwhelming. You will also beat the queues for some of the other more well known galleries and have a swift entry. My 13 year old enjoyed the great... More

The art of Klimt, Schiele and Brauer are all amazing to look at. 2 hours passes in a flash. If you want to eat then book ahead as place was packed.

Take the subway U-2 to the station Museumsquartier and when you come out you are right there. Walk up Maria Hilfer Strasse a few steps and then on your right walk into a square and there are three museums. It's as easy as that. The Leopold Museum is a fantastic place. It has many works of art especially by Klimpt... More
