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.

Vienna is one of the best capital cities of the museums in Europe. Albertina is one of the "must"! Take as much time as you need to visit it, you will get out with a clear idea of how art can make the world a better place.

This museum houses some beautiful impressionist artists including several Monet's, a Renoir portrait, and a Cezanne to name a few. You will enjoy the Picasso's if you are a contemporary art enthusiast. Some excellent works are on permanent display, and some special exhibits were on display during our visit which included "Blow Up" and an Alex Katz exhibit. I found... More
