Fantastic art collection, wide range of Impressionist/Realist artists and interesting exhibition of art and drawings from WW1. Well worth visit and admission fee. Shop also pretty good, nice range of souvenirs.

Lots to see, but erratic scheduling makes "dropping in" impossible. Make sure you enquire in advance of travelling as the museums alternate opening hours, and often close some of their galleries with special exhibitions.

Many fantastic museums within walking distance of each other. The Leopold and Upper Belvedere Museums have the largest collections of Klimt and Schiele's in Europe.

Well worth time exploring the many facets of the area, the Leopald Museum is particularly important.

Easy to get to and loads of options for all the family. Tests your culture threshold and needs more than one visit to appreciate all that is available.

Apparently there were some 20 museums in the complex but we only had time to see two, so check out my reviews on the Leopold and Mumok museums. Well worth a visit but allow loads of time. There's lots to see.

the current exhibition at the Leopold museum: Trozdem Kunst is a comprehensive exhibition dedicated to the fate of Austrian artists who were active between 1914 and 1918 and Egon Schiele's work as a soldier is just stunning... exactly 100 year old... stop by at the Leopold cafe's terrace for drink...
