A simply wonderful art gallery and palace right in the heart of the city that oozes history, gives a glimpse of the opulence of the Hapsburg empire days and also displays superb artworks from various backgrounds and eras. The Batliner Collection is fantastic but then again so are many of the other collections. This is a must for art lovers.

On a rainy day, we stopped in this museum and quite enjoyed it. Monet, Picasso, Andy Warhol art. Flow was nice. Not crowded. In the basement were more exhibits. A very beautiful museum.

We weren't in Vienna for very long, so this was the only art museum my husband and I made it to. I know, its a crime, but that just means we have to go back! Anyway, I don't regret that choice at all. I went mainly for their "Monet to Picasso" exhibit, as I love the Impressionist painters. It's a... More

This is a great museum with four floors and a variety of exhibitions. You buy one ticket for all and also one headset for all. I ran out of steam after three exhibitions but will come back for more. Beautiful rooms and not too crowded.

On this visit to Vienna we visited this museum. A must for the art lovers.....wonderful environment and displays . Fantastic building. immaculate in all aspects. the ''Alfred Durer'' pink rabbit situated outside attracts quite a lot of attention and was being photographed many times by foreign visitors. Well worth a visit.

This is the premier art museum in Vienna that warrants a visit for any art connoisseur who finds himself in the City of Music. On a totally irrelevant note, there's an amazing sausage stand outside this museum called Bitzinger Wurstelstand Albertina that serves the best sausages in town for cheap.

Very good collection of contemporary artwork. Great way to spend a dreary, rainy winters day in Vienna. Only wish there were more works from artists on display.

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.
