I'm not a big fan of contemporary art, so the musem quarter was not on my to do list; however we had a couple hours to do something on a Sunday before taking the train and the museum was close to our hotel. What a gem! This museum was based on a private collection, so many of the works were... More

A must see for contemporary art lovers. Impressive building in Museum Quartier. Not suitable for children. Guided tour reccomended.

A far better experience than the Belvedere museum, which looks old and dated compared to the Leopold Museum. Go visit the Klimt KISS room in the Belvedere and skip almost everything else there. Instead focus on the Leopold museum. A truly tremendous collection......

An extensive collection of the works of Egon Schiele and numerous Klimts makes this a must visit museum. The building is ultra modern and it's vast clean lines and open spaces makes this a memorable place to visit. If in Vienna you must go there and enjoy the experience.

If your are in Vienna be sure to visit this temporary exhibition, a rare opportunity to see schiele's work in not only in an historical context, but also in relation to his personal life. Very important if you really want to understand the focus on love-relation-and family in his later work. Just a pitty that to important works in this... More

I've visited this museum to see Klimt and Schiele, but neither impressed me. What I did like was a small exhibition of photographs from Vienna on the turn of the century (19th to 20th) and a story of Egon Schiele and Wally Neuzil. I wouldn't call this museum a must see museum, but it is worth a visit.

Nice museum with pictures from Klimt, Schiele and others from this period. For sure not everyone will like Schieles' paintings and expressionism, but who like it will be excited.

This is a more modern museum located in the Museumsquarter of Vienna. I specifically went here to see the Gustav Klimt pieces that are on display. The building inside and outside is modern, open and spacious, a nice change of pace. I spent a couple hours roaming around and totally enjoying every minute.

Situated in the Museumsquartier of Vienna, this museum is a gem ! For lovers of Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt - don't miss it !! Wonderful spacy and bright galleries, artwork you always wanted to experience live, in addition to a nice restaurant where both food and drinks are more than acceptable. Enjoy !!

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.
