Terrific compound containing several halls, shops and restaurants, you could probably spend a couple of days looking at a wide selection of contemporary, digital and older art works for adults as well as special provisions for kids. My purpose was to see the Schiele and Klimt works at the Leopold so that's all I'm reporting on here. Gorgeous hall with... More

Located within the first district, it's a great place to relax and have a few drinks while lounging in the sun, people watching or actually going to some of the museums.

Best spot for art and architecture. My fafourite bookshop is hosted there. You will find all the contemporary and ancient viennese masterpieces of art. Also a really nice square to hang out, have a drink, a fro yo or attend to special events. You can easily spend a day there.

It is a must see for everyone who likes museums, there is something for everybody. I enjoyed MUMOK the most, because I am a fan of modern art. Other museums were also very cool and I thought it wasn't too expensive. And you can also rest in front of the museums, as there are many resting places. It is really... More

From the street, you don't realize the layout of MQ, as it's called. The two main museums there, the Leopold and the MUMOK (Museum of Modern Art) are not visible or accessible from the street, only from the vast courtyard reached by rather poorly marked access porches. The courtyard itself s a popular spot for hanging out and texting, which... More

The series of buildings that make up the Museum Quarter, located opposite Maria Theresa Platz in central Vienna, were once home to the imperial stables. Converted to a series of art galleries and theatres in the 1990s, the area is now one of the main attractions during a visit to Vienna. I found the Leopold Museum particularly worthwhile. This is...

The museum quarter, and all of the city of Vienna, is a delight to the senses to walk. The sites are breathtaking.

We found Vienna quite expensive, in particular the galleries, but the choice here is fantastic - you could spend weeks in the Museum Quarter alone. Weather was terrible when we were there but believe the outside areas are really popular during better weather.

Just away from the bussle of MH Strasse the MQ is a great place just to sit and chill have a glass of wine and people watch.

Great atmosphere in this area - really nice area to wander and soak up the atmosphere. Go at night and absorb the live bands and music
