You find a lot of museums to visit (Mumok, Leopold Museum,etc), but you also have a nice area between them with chaira to lay down and eat frozen yogurt or sit by the water and have a beer. Nice ;)

We ended up spending a nice day there with our son as we all had our share of an enjoyable museum experience. Started with the children's museum Zoom where our son enjoyed experiencing life in the Middle Ages : he could wear a coat of armour and helmet, make some medicinal potion, learn about stained glass for cathedrals,... We then... More

One of the strategic attractions of Vienna is that nearly all of its attractions are within walking distance. So much have been said about the museum quarter .....just a few tips....wear a pair of very comfortable walking shoes, a bottle of water and hat in summer. Also the red tram all day pass is cheaper as it goes in a... More

The museums and exhibits are always excellent. But this area is a great spot to go to for drinks au plein air. Cars are not allowed in the Museum Quarter (neighborhood). It is like a series of large inner courts between buildings with cafes, open spaces to hang out (sunbathing, reading etc.), free wifi, contemporary art installations and music performances.... More

You need a full day to explore the museums quarter. In the area you will find offers to the concerts for the night, operas, orquestras, you chose. Tickets vary from 35 to 70 euros more or less.

Visited Vienna in June and really enjoyed the time in the Museum Quarter. It has multiple museums around a central courtyard. Even if you don't go to a museum, the courtyard is a relaxing spot to visit. They have these blue chaise lounges to relax in. Or come by for lunch or a snack. There are several cafe's. We stopped...

even if you can't make it to all the museums in the quartier, it is worth the visit. Start early, have lunch there, and keep going. The plaza has lots of room for relaxing and putting up your feet for a bit when you need a break!

lots of cool museums, shops and restaurants - a very nice place to spend a whole day. There's some changing activities on the main place throughout the day - also for kids.

Permanent collection in MOMAK is small and limited, entry is expensive. Outside courtyard area is pleasant, good to hang out in. Leopold museum also limited, great if you like Klimt and Schiele.
