We have visited this museum several times. On Saturday admission is free so this is good time to stop in. I think children and students are admitted free at any time. We have never found it crowded. There is a very nice restaurant and the shop is fun with lots of interesting contemporary gifts. Among many other things, there are outstanding collections of Biedermeier furniture, very old lace, glassware, textiles and ceramics. A large area is devoted to the Wiener Workstatte and Art Nouveau with exquisite furniture, lamps and other items used in homes. There are even some work drawings by Gustav Klimt for a frieze. Especially interesting is the Frankfurt Kitchen designed by Margarete Schutte-Lihotzky and used in about 10,000 municipal housing apartments at the time. The ideas for a small, workable yet inexpensive kitchen are taken for granted in kitchen design today. The building itself is as impressive architecturally as most Vienna museums. The cavernous central lobby has comfortable sofas where locals seem to hang out, and the restaurant also seems like a place where locals linger.
