If you are in Vienna don't miss the Museum Quarter, even if you are not the museum type at all, you 'll love the young crowd, the bars, the cafes, the restaurants, there. (even the gift shop was fun!)

MQ used to be an exciting place. Just go, and something interesting could be found. Now it's all snooty little wine bars and overpriced artisanal coffee stands, and less and less of anything to do with museums or art. You could possibly stroll through 'Electric Avenue', a hallway with a few decorated windows, maybe there will be a small exhibition... More

First, Tripadvisor does in fact list MUMOK. Search for "Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation (MUMOK)". The other thing is that it can be difficult to find your way around the museum quarter using the usual tourist-issue map, which tries to cover most of Vienna, so the museum quarter's only a tiny bit in the middle and the street names,...

This museum was next to my hotel. So by default I frequented it on my way to Maria Theresse Square. It displays modern type of art. As this was not for me, I pass by this v quickly. I concentrated in spending my time on Kuntshistoriches Museum instead

Over recent years Vienna has developed, with care and imagination, a full complex of museums and art galleries, ranging from very small and contemporary, to grand and historic, plus large modern buildings with changing exhibitions. You can spend plenty of time here, there are refreshment areas, open air seating (very popular in the summer months). TripAdvisor lists all the separate... More

Be picky on what you see and visit - coming from Glasgow where ALL museums are FREE - Vienna can cost you a lot on entrance monies !

The architecture of the place is beautiful and MQ constitutes the biggest museum complex in Europe. The best time to go to Museum Quarter is during the summer, when they have the big "plastic couches" out. You can lie down, enjoy the sun, read, relax, chat and enjoy a drink or an ice cream. However, the actual museums (MUMOK, Leopold,... More
