If you like modern art, this is a must visit place. During the time when we visited, there was also a photography exhibition that was simply fantastic, but it's not a par on the paintings upstairs. You can spend easily half a day here!

Well, you think you are going to see one of the world's largest collection of prints: there is absolutely nothing!!! The few things on display are fac simile, just read the information on each of the very few works: unbelievable! As for. The rest, Monet and Picasso have estabilished themselves as 'art brands' across Europe, virtually tourist traps: this is... More

The Albertina museum is one of the premier art museums in Vienna, along with the Leopold museum, to be sure. In July 2014, the Albertina featured three principal collections, each engaging, interesting and very well explained. From Monet to Picasso, the Batliner Collection presents some 500 trail-brazing works of modern art. Plus, a collection of Alex Katz works depicts cool... More

We spent about 90 minutes here enjoying the Monet/Picasso special exhibit. We also took in the regular exhibit, the Katz exhibit and the special film/photo exhibit. The regular exhibit is housed in palace rooms which we appreciated as much as the art on display. We picked up one audio guide and shared it which worked out well.

Having spent six hours at Kunsthaus Zürich (I had to leave because it was closing), I was worried that I would not have enough time to see everything here. I allocated a maximum of two hours for this visit, in between arriving in the city in the morning from Zurich and going back to the pension to collect my big... More

This time, I was lucky to visit Albertina while there was a temporary exhibition of Albrecht Durer which is a rare opportunity to see his works ("Young Hare" and others). It was a wonderful experience.

We saw the Monet to Picasso exhibition and I think we both assumed this would be more extensive then it turned out to be. Modern art - meh. Blow up exhibition full of trendies, not for us. Staterooms were interesting but we were through the whole place in less than an hour.

After spending hours in other (better) museums in Vienna (Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Natural History, etc), Albertina was a huge let down. Entry fee of 12 Euros is quite expensive. Permanent collection (Monet to Picasso) was quite interesting and i did spend considerable amount of time admiring the fine work. But other collections (Blow up, etc.) were disappointing,... More

Located in a vibrant cultural hub, the Albertina is an impressive gallery housing both modern and Austrian culture. The strong solid building is cleverly designed......a beautiful red carpet staircase leads to several pleasant surprises .....a modern art gallery and grand old Austrian period interiors and furniture....and brilliant chandeliers....matched with string bold colours. The restaurant cafe is stylish. It is one... More

After Leopolds' Museum I felt hunger for Klimt and I was also counting for exhibition "From Monet to Picasso" The exhibition was impressive, but one floor, 2nd, was closed and I didn't knew about iit buing a ticket. There was one more exhibition "Blow up" but in my opinion is better to watch a movie than some pictures and snippets.
