“Treasures of the Hapsburgs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The title says it all. Room after room of the most amazing and precious antiquities that you'll ever see. The quality of the workmanship is amazing as is the fact that one family could amass such a hoard. The travelling and shooting ship model blew me away- pun intended.

“Fantatic Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The building itself is already an art, of course, the huge exhibits inside will make spend a day there. You can't miss it when you visit Vienna

“Brilliant - Even for someone who doesn't like museums”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Being not much of the museums' type, we had decided that if we had to go to just one museum in Vienna, this would be it and by the looks of it, it definitely was a wise choice. The museum is huge by any standard, covering 3 floors and has collections from different regions of Europe and had a special exhbition on Giza when we were there. The sheer variety and number of paintings, sculptures and artefacts in this place is overwhelming and even though we 'walked through' most of the collections, it took us almost 2 hours to cover the main rooms on display.
Couple the ticket with the Vienna Schatzkammer for 20eur and you can visit the places anytime for a year. If I was so impressed with it, I can only imagine how much an art lover would love it.

“Titian Out the Ying Yang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The collection of Renaissance art in this place is amazing, especially in terms of quantity. There was plenty of stuff by various Dutch Masters, as well as a room full of works by Titian. While they might not constitute his best work, they nevertheless are certainly worth the price of admission all by themselves.

“oldfashioned lovely grand scale museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great museum to visit. A real artistic treasure. Conservative and on a grand scale. A museum you can visit and then revisit the parts you like best.
