The Collection of artists was a pleasant surprise. Art from Michelangelo,Picasso,Degas, Peter Paul Rubens and so many more. We enjoyed the significant collection of impressionist art. A museum not to be missed.

We enjoyed our visit on the recommendation of a friend who has visited multiple times. The displays rotate with special exhibits coming and going. The permanent collection is large and dominated by the impressionists. This building is perfect for the purpose of displaying great art, done with expertise and a flair for even the most casual visitor.

The Monet exhibit brought me inside but the palace surroundings were enchanting and provided the perfect background to display the impressionist paintings. Being up close to the masters work and then wandering the grand palace was a delightful way to spend the afternoon.

We really like Impressionist art, and the Albertina not only had a wide array of Impressionart art but other styles that were great to see. The museum was well laid out and we highly recommend it.

We were very lucky to see this exciting exhibition! The Albertina is a beautiful building and perfect setting for any exhibit. Very reasonably priced and easy to get to by tram.

This was a nice, cultural mix of art from many cultures as well as one separate floor mostly dedicated to a 60's movie called Blowup. The photography was outstanding!

There are some stunning artworks mixed in with the sublime and ridiculous. I need to make it clear at the beginning of this review that, for the most part, I do not get Impressionism. I am not sure if some artists have an imagination that is not matched by their talent. Monet and Signac I like but most works by... More

Although by no means did I have a negative experience, I didn't enjoy the Albertina quite as much as most of the correspondents below. Don't go there expecting to see a large variety of old master prints and drawings! My understanding is that the collection is world leading, but if it is, very, very few of their pieces are on...

Fantastic art museum and it was free for under-19s!! The Batliner collection is amazing, with Monets and Picassos, and the Alex Katz exhibition was also very cool. The film/photography exhibit is also well worth seeing, it was very interesting. There are lockers provided for bags, and you can take a camera round and take as many photos as you like,... More

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!
