Very good collection of Schiele art that you cannot see at other galleries in the world. And although there was only a one Gustave Klimt there was also a Monet and some very interesting paintings by lesser known artists. If you want to see more Gustave Klimt you should visit the Belverede which is a 20 minute tram ride from... More

The museum advertises in Vienna as "Klimt and Schiele collection". Well, this is somewhat misleading since there is basically just one Klimt masterpiece and the focus of the museum is on Schiele and other Austrian painters from the 19th and 20th century. Despite that, it's definitely worth visiting, if only to see Death and Life by Klimt. What a great... More

An education in one of the more entertaining side streams of modernism, the Leopold is a very well put together museum featuring a lot of art that was bleeding edge in its day. How amusing this will be will be directly related to your interest in the subject. We loved it!

This museum houses the world's largest collection of Egon Schiele works, as well as a number of Gustav Klimt works. I was expecting more artworks from both artists, but that did not detract from the overall collection. The staff are also nicer than at the Kunsthistorisches museum.

The museum is a wonderful space with four floors of very interesting art, but if you are expecting rooms of Schiele & Klimt don't. While its fair to say both artists are well represented the gallery does contain a large cross section of other artists who are known to have studied with Schiele and were active at the same time....

The collection of works by Egon Schiele that Prof. Leopold gathered in a lifetime of selected purchases is not to be missed. The paintings, drawings, and superb collection of Vienna 1900 decorative arts are washed with just enough natural and artificial light to not dull your viewing with needless shadows. You can also get a close look at the art... More

"The Leopold Museum and The Belvedere are the pick of the museums in Vienna" said Gillian, our host, and, of course, she was right!!! There is too much to do in one lifetime in Vienna so, after you have got the feel of the place and know your way around go to these two wonderful places for an insight into... More

So much to see…good introduction to the Vienna Secession Movement through the work of Klimt, Schiele and Hoffmann - Hoffman's furniture was particularly fab.
