Tracey Emin make up your own mind but the insulation not suitable for young children. It was interesting reading about Klimt, Egon Schiele etc as well as seeing the paintings. Very well laid out art gallery. My 11 year old daughter enjoyed listening to the music on the head phones. Lovely place to sit looking out of the big window.... More

My misgivings about the provenance for some of the art that Rudolph Leopold acquired for his wonderful museum aside, I very much enjoyed exploring the permanent and special collections. The first floor, after showing you Herr Leopold and a wall of shelving filled with things he loved to collect besides paintings (like ceramic steins), and a mixture of the art... More

Austria's best know modern painters - Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, are joined in one of these. There is also a special exhibit devoted to Wally Neuzil, Schieie's model and muse. And the third is devoted to the contemporary artist Tracey Emin, whose work partly echoes Scihiele's style.

I personally preferred the exhibitions across the courtyard at mumok, but these two galleries go very well together and a discount is available if the two tickets are purchased together.

Great architecture largest collection of Egon Schiele's expressionist work with the exhibition of painters that had influence in the movement Klimt, Kikoschkas, Gerstl. Very didactic presentation and explanation on relation between his dramatic life and his artwork. Do rent audio guide to make the most of your visit. A Must. Give yourselves time and enjoy as we did.

It's hard to review this museum because upon our visit I discovered I don't like Egon Schiele and his art makes up a large part of the museum. We visited the cafe in the museum and it was lovely and relaxing, and the museum has special pricing for seniors and students which is great.

I have to admit I'm not a gallery person (rather would watch football) but the museum is quite organized and has a nice collection of paintings. If somebody is interested in Schiele would be then must have to visit for such. I enjoyed the visit,

The Leopold Museum is a modern light museum with a beautiful collection of modern Austrian art. The museum has a great number of Egon Schiele's art and also Gustav Klimt beautiful "Life and Death" in its collection. Absolutely worth a visit!

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.
