How lovely to be able to stroll through a museum and take in the works of art without the hustle and bustle and crowds of people with rucksacks and mobile phones getting in the way. Leopold beats that for Tate Modern any day.

It was very exciting to see such an Art. I was hoping to see more Gustav Klimt's paintings and it was a small disappointment for me, as there were only a few of them. Great Schiele's exhibition which I can fully recommend. On the top floor there is a room with beautiful view. You will not regret for sure.

Dear Visitor, thank you for your feedback. We emphasized mainly on Schiele and Klimt. Our collection is hosting the largest Schiele collection worldwide, with 41 paintings and 188 works on paper. Indeed our Klimt collection is smaller, but his works in our museum are not to be underestimated. As a matter of fact, our collection comprises not less than 8... More

Excited to visit my all time favorite artist, the commercial of the museum reported Klimt and Schieles' art but I would say mainly Schiele. Regardless of the beauty of Schiele, the museum advertised Klimt and Schiele instead of Klimt art there were only 9 pictures and only two of the most important. I also found very confusing the layout of... More

Dear Visitor, We are sorry that your visit of the Leopold Museum did not fully meet your expectations. Indeed, we emphasize on Klimt and especially on his unchallenged masterpiece Life and Death in our advertisements for the museum. Although Klimt is, as opposed to Schiele, less present in our permanent collection, his works in our museum are not to be... More

A must for any serious Schiele fan. The paintings currently displayed are stunning to say the least. One could spend hours just with them. However, there was also a Giacometti exhibit that was splendid. Had no idea at the scope of his art and was thrilled to see paintings as well. What a great day there. Truly a wonderful museum,...

I am a big fan of Egon Schiele so this was the perfect place to visit. His paintings are beautifully exposed and you can really enjoy. Also paintings of Klimt are exposed, and I love Klimt :) The only frustration: you wish you can see more paintings of the 2 artists but some are in others countries for exhibits and... More

This is an excellent museum, I would say a don't miss for Klimt and Schiele. It is an art museum not a palace that displays art, so it is well curated and the art is well displayed. For me a don't miss.

We went here to see an exhibition of Schiele and it was excellent, wide-reaching and comprehensive. Well mounted and a great deal of historical context made it all the more reqarding. Directly in the middle of the Museum Quartier.

Set up with the private collection of Rudolf & Elisabeth Leopold in 2001, this Museum is a part of the Museum Quarter. The Schiele collection was a beautiful arrangement of this man's work & I learnt so much more about him thanks to this collection. There was little on display of Klimt as most was on loan to the Museum... More
