We were very much looking forward to seeing this museum because of its famed Graphic Arts Collection, which includes work by Durer, Da Vinci and Rembrandt. The information at the entry is not very specific, saying the ticket covers the So-and-So Collection. If you're not up on who donated what, you're pretty lost. We saw some wonderful Impressionist work, and... More

spent part of an afternoon going thru the museum and amazing collection and display of part of the Batliner collection. Have to look into how they collected this amazing variety of artists. The museum is easy to get to on the U bahn, and has a wide variety of art on display along with some rooms from the Hapsburgs staterooms.... More

The lineup can very from extremely short to extremely long depending on how many tour buses roll up at the same time. It's worth standing in line and you could definitely spend several hours there as we did.

I spent the most part of a day walking the exquisite halls of the Albertina, enjoying the excellent collection of artworks spanning a wide array of artistic periods. The Egon Schiele and Klimt paintings were worth a visit on their own. The staterooms also afforded a good sense of the fine master craftsmanship of the period - from exquisite inlaid... More

A wonderful gallery with great selection of paintings. One of the best I have seen. The Miro exhibition (until January 2015) is amazing. There are authentic palace rooms are lovely ( much more than the schoenborn palace)

I have been to this museum several times but each time I am awed by the collection. The impressionist collection is great- Monet, Degas, Cezanne, Matisse etc. And the late works of Picasso and Chagall. . The staterooms are predictably grand, opulent and ostentatious but tucked in the rooms are Michaelangelos which are really great. They have two special exhibits... More

I've paid more for museums which i have not appreciated as much as i enjoyed the art at the Albertina. Well laid out, not very crowded, a beautiful building and last, but most important, a good selection of art. I enjoy impressionism of which there was a good display.

The Albertina has many different things to see under one roof and it's not nearly as crowded as other attractions like the Hofburg or other art museums. No line up for tickets. various art exhibits from impressionism to 60s film and photography. And very quiet state rooms that were nearly deserted. Felt like you were in someone's grand home while...

Coming here from the nearby Kusthistorische Museum you are in for a bit of disapponting. Beautiful halls but nothing to compare with the other.Interesting collection of more modern pictures, many Picasso. A big minus is warranted as i had my Ipad crashed when i handed it over at the cloakroom in my backpack. Such a pity.

Dear giorgiom60 We are so sorry to learn, your I pad was crashed at the Albertina cloakroom. Fortunately, accidents like these happen rarely! If there is a similar occasion, the Albertina offers a damage report: Actually, this damage report is not an administrative barriere, but the base for the Albertina insurance, in order to idemnify costs quickly and easily.
