The Leopold Museum is a unique treasure-house of Viennese Jugendstil, the Wiener Werkstätte and Expressionism. It is the most-visited museum of the city's hottest cultural site, the MuseumsQuartier, and it houses the most significant and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world, as well as masterworks by Secession founder Gustav Klimt. Tip: The museum's panorama windows offer a wonderful view of central Vienna with Maria Theresa Square and the Hofburg Palace.

Beautifully designed art gallery which is part of Vienna's museum quarter.

Within this gallery there are some works by Klimt on the top floor, and then a major collection of work by Egon Schieles on the next floor down which are well worth seeing. I... read more

Within this gallery there are some works by Klimt on the top floor, and then a major collection of work by Egon Schieles on the next floor down which are well worth seeing. I liked the information provided by the gallery about both artists, and came away feeling I had really learned a lot about them as people as well... More

Excellent collection but the reason to go is to see the Egon Schieles. Plenty to keep one occupied for a couple hours.

I was terribly disappointed to discover that this museum has only a few minor Klimt paintings. Having paid the admission and the audio guide (additional 4 euros). The guard said "sorry" when I asked if this was all they had; the bookshop clerk explained that "The Kiss" is at the Belvedere Museum elsewhere in Vienna. Their reactions led me to... More

wide open and spaious, it has great hanging space and could be filled with wonder. However, it has a sparce curatorial feel. Angst ridden expressionism everywhere which starts as exciting and deeply involving but then become routine and dull and very, very worthy. Won't be back...

Egon Schiele's art has finally found a worthy and ample setting in the Leopold, however much of an unpleasant piece of work he was as a human being (mysogyny, absence of all compassion and tact, sky-high arrogance, greed and ingratitude). We discover in the course of this newly-conceived exhibition that one of his principal influences was Arthur Rimbaud, the brilliant... More

In this small but worthy museum you'll find the history and work of Egon Schiele. You'll have the context for his life and art, geting a good idea where he came from. There is now a nice exhibition of ancient oceanic and african art and it's relation to ocidental art, that's very interesting too.

I was so excited to see Gustav Klimt, Death and Life, and many of the works by Egon Schiele who was influenced by Klimt. The museum has audio guides in in German, French,Italian, and English. Well worth the extra fee of 4 euro. You can book in th evening with a few eats and champagne after the tour. What a... More

The Leopold Museum, located within the boundaries of the famed Museums Quartier in Vienna, offers an excellent collection of Austrian Art (Klimt, Kokoschka and Schiele) as well as fascinating temporary exhibitions that change once or twice a year. One should note that the museum has faced numerous legal restitution claims and in some cases settling financially with heirs of the... More

Not the easiest place to find from the sign posting and, because it is in the Museum Quarter courtyard you can't see it from anywhere else. Pictures are a bit limited but well worth seeing the Hoffman furniture. Free with a Vienna Pass which had me thinking I would have found it poor value if I'd paid at the door.

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
