The courtyard of the old imperial stables is a wonderful setting for resting after visiting one or more of the museums housed here. The Leopold is unmissable. The various cafes that surround the courtyard are all good.

I visited the fascinating Klimt and Schiele exhibition at the Leopold Museum. In the light of the current interest about the British involvement in WW1, it was interesting and moving to visit an exhibition covering 1914-1918 entitled "And yet there was art". I also had delicious (and very reasonably priced) meals at two of the Museumsquartier's restaurants.

Went only to the Leopold museum which was great. The courtyard of the open Museum Quarter was a nice spot with fountains, lots of activities for kids, outdoor cafes, and places the locals were using the relax. We did not have enough time in Vienna or would have been back to visit more of the museums.

Vienna's Museum Quarter is wonderful for the museum buff who wants a place to hang out in a relaxed, artsy atmosphere. Surrounded by the smaller museums (Mumok, Leopold..) if you want a less intense experience than the Kunsthistorisch or Albertina , it's very accessible by the U-bahn, tram or a 20 minute walk from the centre of Mariahilferstrasse. There's a... More

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
