The building is fantastic. Anyone who knows anything about Egon Schiele must go. The collection of his artwork is incredible as well as others by Klimt, impressionists and modernists. The fact that it was very uncrowded was great. Very nice building as well.

Art super stars, modern masters, innovators, contemporaries and acquaintances ..., Klimmt and Schiele moved the art world. Get the story at the Leopold. This is a must. Easy to find. Go. Schiele found that he hated being a (conscripted) soldier after one week or less, so he said. He died very young, a victim of the Spanish Flu epidemic. Recently,... More

I really enjoy this visit. First of all I was counting mainly for Klimt's painting, but honestly, they don't have much of them. But now I'm aquainted with works of Schiele - they have the best collection of his arts. The prices in museum shop are reasonable, albums coted from 10-15 euros.

This was hands down my favorite museum after a month in the EU. Get the audio guide - it's worth it! You will be treated to Austrian artists, history, and just very cool works by Egon Schiele. We stayed about two hours.

Husb and I visited the Leopold Museum and were totally blown away by the experience. From the modern public seating area for lounging outside to the treasures housed within, the Leopold is one of the best art museums I have ever visited. They have an extraordinary collection of work by Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt but also introduced me to... More

We did not want to leave Vienna without seeing some of the Klimt works on exhibit here, and we were not disappointed. Truth be told, I preferred his landscapes rather than some of his later works, but we enjoyed our visit here, limited though it was.

This was the one museum we chose to visit during our stay in Vienna. My only regret was not having more time. I'm not a big museum goer or a big art aficionado, but this museum was a fascinating introduction to Austrian art and the Secessionist movement. I even found myself in the museum store afterwards buying art books to... More

Just loved the Leopold. Loved the way the art was set out. Most enjoyable. Great history of Viennese painters. Very interesting photographs too. Well worth a visit.

A great collection of European art from 19th and 20th century. Nice modern setting in the old city center.
