This is a must visit museum in Vienna with excellent paintings and nicely renovated palace rooms: tea salon, audience room with a huge Christmas tree, hall of the muses, etc.

Very nice Miro collection, there is a bit for everyone here…Monet, Picasso, Miro, even Prantl sculptures, etc. It should not take more than 2 hours to see the whole thing. Normal ticket costs 11.90 euros but with Wien-Karte it costs 9.70 euros and audio guide is available at 4 euros. 0.50 euro for keeping your Jackets? not cool. If you... More

We made a wrong turn from the food market, so it took us a bit longer to get back to Albertina. I did not really appreciate the exhibition of Miro, but was swept off my feet looking at Karl Prantl's work. He knew how to get the essence of the stone and make you feel and notice its beauty in...

Nowhere we saw this was a museum of contemporary art! It's full of those weird paintings of white canvases and splashes of paint, which are just horrible. We are lucky there was a temporary Monet exhibition, but it had like 2 of his paintings. The museum even had a strange rock exposition. Well, I know some people like this kind... More

Right there in the centre of the city... with new exhibits, fabulous traditional pieces, beautiful rooms, great air conditioning, and the terrace cafe, serving really cold drinks with plenty of ice and the best coronation chicken sandwich you could hope for. Lovely experience.

The permanent exhibit really worths but the temporary exhibition was terribly bad. All in all it is wonderful and not crowded. It is a very elegant and beautiful building! Nice view!

The gallery is a mixture of classical and modern art with a suburb restaurant. Lovely hot chocolate and panini for lunch. There are also toilets located throughout the whole building which was really good.

Was not sure about this as we were travelling as a family, but found that there is something to interest everyone. Wonderful art, history and culture. Went in winter so not crowded at all - but staff said it can get very busy in the Summer. Highly recommended!

We go usually as a whole family to this museum. With my parents and my adult daughter. It's really nice to watch the modern art accompanied with some temporary exhibitions. This time it was Juan Miró. We could see artwork from his youth in Spain, then the change, after he arrived to Paris. There are many texts which explain the... More
