Vienna Museum Pass (6 Replies)
Hi, I'm going to be in Vienna (during the holidays) for only a 1 1/2 days. Is there a museum pass that I can purchase for that short amount of time? Also, I will be there on a holiday, Dec 8th, I hear that some museums are free that day. Is that true? Thanks so much! Robyn.
