The modern art museum was quite boring for us. It probably was because of the excessive number of museums we saw in Vienna, bu, nonetheless. There were many floors closed as well. Overall we weren't impressed and would recommend doing something else rather than seeing Kunst Haus Wien.

For a modern art museum it seemed underfunded. The shows were backwater. There were storage grids displaying parts of the collection which was a 'fun' approach and gave insight into what was happening in relation to funding? Many floors closed (for rehang?)

Worth going to that part of the city and walking along the canal, although probably nicer in the summer than in November.

The building is very cool, hundertwassers work was great and we even got to go to an photography exhibition for only 1 euro extra (which was really nice as well). There was an mini hundertwasser docu in the museum which was very fun to watch.

I discoverd by a chance this Austrian architect, he left spots of his coloured vision of life in town. I appreciated the house, even I have known once it could be visited. Pity for the standing crowd of people trying to get the best pic! (me too, of course!)

We were passing in our way to the Prater and the building took our attention and we decided to visit it. We do not regret it and we loved it. The mix between the architecture and the paintings you will find inside make it in my opinion a must. I recommend it 100%

Friedensreich Hundertwasser's Kunst Haus is one of our favourite exhibition venues. During our 2016 visit to Wien (Vienna), we were delighted to find that Martin Parr had an exhibition there. We met him when he came to speak at an Arena Weekend Seminar a few years back. Only one question, "Martin, why NO CATALOGUE ?!". I don't think I've ever... More

We visited this museum after reading a flyer about a photography exhibition I wanted to see so I was pleasantly surprised at the building. It was unusual to visit somewhere that the actual building forms part of the visiting experience. The actual works of Hunterwasser did not do a lot for me although the exterior of the buildings were unique... More

Interesting facade design, very unique. I didn't get inside the museum, just checked out its exterior, that is fascinating especially for art and archutecture buffs.
