“The Voltron Of Art Museums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

If you like you're art, and wandering around museums staring at stuff then this a must. Whack it on you're to-do list. You have your Leopold for your old, and your MUMOK for your new.
Being well situated it's easily accessed, and is large enough to spend the day here as it comprises of several museums, cafes and shops. If you are planning to go to all the museums, buy a cheaper combination pass.

“All--in-one art complex with”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

MQ has various art & culture activities and museums. My favorite ones are LEOPOLD MUSEUM (particularly for Viennese Secession Masterpieces, Viennese Art Nouveau) and MUMOK (modern art). Many lovely cafes to enjoy or just chilling in courtyard. Check out their activities/event calendar to plan a trip. MQ visit is always hightlights of my Vienna trip.

They overcharge for this tour but there are many masterpieces and the building itself is incredible. Wish the service staff could manage to break a smile once Ina while.

“Grand affair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Walking through the museum quarter is well worth the time. Lots of photo ops. Come early in the morning if you want pictures without crowds.
