Nice collection of Austrian art, but they put a lot of emphasis on the Klimt collection - and that is not very big. Expected more.

This gallery has a wonderful collection of Egon Schiele's work as well as excellent paintings by Klimt including some beautiful landscapes. The gallery space is fantastic with good descriptions in English as well as German giving an insight into the artists stylistic development. The gallery is home to a number of other (unknown to me) Austrian modernist artists of the... More

The Leopold (€12 per adult) is an enjoyable modern art museum, focusing primarily upon the works of early 20th century Austrian artists. The museum opened in 2001 and is mostly renowned for its large collection of Egon Schiele paintings. Here you can find an entire floor dedicated to the works of the early 20th century artist - Egon Schiele. There... More

Leopold Museum has a good collection of modern and contemporary austrian painters. Some Klimt, Schiele and other painters that were a positive surprise. The museum staff is rude and unfriendly to foreigner tourists, but it seems that it is the same in all museums (I wonder if they are trained like this!!!??). The museum cafe has good food and friendly... More

My partner and I visited the museum on 9th April 2014. It was advertised as having a collection of paintings by Klimt, Kokoschka and Schiele. There is certainly a substantial number of works by Schiele but very few by Klimt and certainly not any of his more well known works. There are one or two quite exceptional paintings of his... More

Dear Andrew G., We are really sorry to hear that your visit at the Leopold Museum didn’t meet your expectations. Please let me apologize and explain some of the circumstances that contributed to your unpleasant experience. One week prior to your visit, the museum had housed a huge art fair (“Art Austria”) which had to be dismantled just the week... More

The Leopold has a strong collection of Austrian masters (especially Schiele, some Klimt and some wonderful lesser known, but incredibly talented painters). In addition to the wonderful paintings, the text and annotations are unusually well-done and highly informative, without being the least bit boring. This museum is a special treat amongst the riches of Viennese art offerings.

We visited during the "Lang Nacht der Museen". I don't remember having seen either Klimt or Schiel's original paintings before, and it was a treat. It has a great deal of their artworks, and I am really happy of having come by.

Going to this museum was not on my original itinerary for visiting Vienna, but I am so glad that I added it! I got the audio guide and learned quite a bit about work by Klimt, Schiele, but also their contemporaries. The guide made a difference although there is also quite a bit of text on the walls to guide... More

Passion and grace. A wondrous collection of art that stands on its own merits, also displayed in context of the history of Vienna. That's about all I'll add to the other positive reviews of the Leopold. It's about the only good reason to visit the Museumsquartier. A couple things though- Hang on to your ticket, as you can't enter (or... More
