“Schiele and Klimpt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This museum holds two fantastic galleries for Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimpt. If you have any desire to see these two incredible artists, the Leopold Museum is the place to go. It is an incredibly modern museum with fantastic galleries. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to view some fantastic modern artwork.

“A day at the museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The whole experience of visiting this museum was wonderful for me.

My teen-age son was shooed away on his own adventure of riding the very convenient Viennese trolleys and subway while I spent several hours experiencing art history and culture from Mr Leopold's collection.

It was amazing to me that Austrians do not charge admittance to museums for those that cannot afford to pay, because culture is for everyone. But I could pay, and took the elevators from floor to floor, transported from Klimt to Schielle, the late 19th and early 20th century Vienna Secessionists and Art Nouveau crowd; scenes of people, individuals, and deeply meaningful expressions of landscapes for a few hours on my own. Walking from one exhibit to sit and ponder another tangible concept.

It was closing time, and I was on the top floor looking out a window to the top of nearby buildings toward the setting sun, then the elevator ride down to the main entrance and out a piazza where hundreds of young people were sitting in small clusters, visiting, singing, sharing a few hours during Easter holiday.

“Egon Schiele”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is a lovely museum but for me the absolute hightlight of this museum was Egon Schiele. I was personally disappointed with the Klimt exhibition. I thought there would be a lot more paintings on display. However, once I walked into the Schiele exhibition, I was blown away. His art is fantastic and it was so interesting reading about him and his life. We didn't havie time to sit in the museum's coffee shop but it is really funky and trendy. If you have time, and feel like resting your legs, this seems like a great coffee shop to sit and enjoy the views.

“Welcome to the Klimpt,s again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Very good modern building well laid out with good a access to each floor. The Sesesion works are everywhere including furniture and other high quality artefacts . There is also a good Resturant. Outside in the square there are also many resting points without going into a cafe, but also,good quality cafe in the square too.
