The Museum is well planned and offers a good selection of important works. If you like Klimt there are a few of his paintings. They have quite a few of works by Egon Schiele.

I am no arty person but a review somewhere said if you have nerve for only one museum in Vienna make it Leopold, and I did. I started with Tracy Emin in the UG. I was stunned. Then I went from Klimt to Schiele. I was very glad I did in this sequence. First see what inspires the work of... More

This is a great museum in the Arts quarter of Vienna. Some really interesting pieces of work by well known Austrian artists. Give yourself atleast one solid hour here.

The museum has a large collection of Schiele's work, really liked how they portrayed it by examining his relationship with Wally Neuzil and thus the role of women in the process of creating art. Great exhibition of successionist works, was pleasantly surprised by the furniture collection included. Overall, a wonderful experience.

I walked into Leopold's only because I was told, "how can you go to Vienna and not...". I can't claim to be an art critic now, but I know I spent a very interesting couple of hours in understanding the culture of the city through the eyes of a maverick. The relationship between the artist, Egon Shiele and his muse... More

Schiele floor is very interesting as is Klimt. Currently Tracey Emin exhibit on lower ground. Interesting use of space in the museum, helpful text around exhibits. Very enjoyable visit.

I really enjoyed the current exhibition at Leopold Museum, my first art experience in Vienna. It was interesting to see the story of Wally Neuzil alongside Egon Schiele. The rest of the works are also worth the visit particularly Klimt and Richard Gerstl.

An intense survey of the work of Egon Schiele, viewed through the prism of his relationship with his model/muse/mistress, very informative and well curated. Plus an assortment of seccessionist works - Klimt etc, Hoffman and other furniture and objects, and a less interesting collection of more recent Austrian art. And currently Tracy Emin. Who is definitely not channelling Schiele.

Came here for the Klimt and Schiele exhibition and were not disappointed. Superb stuff, with Schiele's life and work exceptionally well covered. Can't comment on Emin as we aren't fans, so didn't visit. For extra Klimt, combine the Leopold with a visit to the Upper Belvedere. Ace cafe, with a good roof terrace.

They have the largest collection of Egon Schiele. They have a lot fron the viennaise Art Nouveau artist. The temporary exhibitions what they organise are excellent - this April Wally Neuzil, the modell of Schiele.

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.
