You can access The Museum Quarter by underground on line 3 or by Hop on Hop Off Bus ( Vienna Sightseeing) stop 3 on the red route. There's probably other ways to but this is what we did. A great mix of old and contemporary buildings and exhibitions and events. Great to go at night , there's some laid back... More

Very attractive and historic buildings, pleasant parkland and walkways. Even without going in any museums, we spent most of the afternoon wandering around. We particularly liked an excavations site showing remains from several periods from Roman to middle ages to 18th Century. Shame the plan was orientated upside down which ever way you viewed it!

Love the restaurants in this area. Would visit just for this and then walk to the historical sites, or just walk around and enjoy the city - something i love to do whenever i am in Vienna

Before visiting Vienna is best to make a research about what is going on in Museum Quarter, you may be lucky enough to see a very interesting exhibition as I did! A lot of things go on there, a lot of things to see, and if you have a sunny day you could go just for a walk or lay... More

Don't rush your time here - you'd miss the best part - sit down, with the sun on your face, and soak up the atmosphere. This is undoubtedly the bohemian part of a fantastic city, with groups or individuals using the space to hangout, paint, or make films! It's a great place to take a book, or some food and... More

It's a bit overhyped and overpriced for the place. Take a stroll around to soak up the energy around, live performances, kids had good time running around. There's a nice restaurant inside.
