Don't know of many museums that allow you to see ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome! Amazing display of mummies, artifacts, and so much more! With everything going on in the world, I don't know if I will ever go to Egypt, but this museum allowed me to see so much of its heritage. For that display alone it... More

We have an annual pass for this museum and it is a beautiful place with a moving, roaring Allosaurus. In the digital planetarium, we love the 'live' presentation of the dinosaurs.

This museum is huge and have a lot of great pieces of art, I especially like the several hundred year old technical items on display. It is so much to see that I actually recommend splitting it up in at least 2 days, or a day with a break in between. If you are like me after hours of looking... More

Visited this on our Viking Cruise stop in Vienna, Outstanding! The collection said to be one of the best, was the result of the emperor's passion for armor. The size in itself is great if your into armor or military artifacts. However, even if your not, it reflects a more personal touch like father and son, matching armor as well... More

We spent at least four hours in this museum and could quite easily have spent a further four. I especially loved the collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities and the Collection of Sculpture and Decorative Arts. Beautiful museum - inside and out and worth a visit. Our only frustration the day we visited was the café was closed but we... More

We could have spent more than one day here easily. It is fabulous ! ....and for 20 euros, darn good value. Kids would love the dinosaurs exhibit - along with a moving model that roars. Lots to ooh and aah at - very impressed

A fabulous museum with a great art collection! Particularly good Caravaggios and Rembrandt's - they are beautifully displayed and there are wonderfully comfy settees where you can sit and enjoy the art. Go to the cafe on the first floor which is spectacular in itself and have the delicious iced tea!

Visited early July with 2 teenagers. The art collection is amazing as per previous comments and an unexpected and interesting Egyptian section (which usually I find dull) but the real treat is the building and rooms itself. It is quite overwhelming. We took a welcome coffee break in the restaurant on the 2nd floor which is unusual in itself. The... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
