This is a nice size gallery with an interesting collection of well know artists, as well as less know (to me at least!). They combine the paintings with video clips to provide time period information. it was a nice way to spend a few hours!

Must visit if you would like a sneak peek into the Imperial abodes of Austrian Royalty. The rooms are simply breathtaking and impeccably well-maintained. The works of Picasso, Gustav Klimt, and some features in the contemporary art section will make for an absolutely worthwhile visit. I was extremely happy after my visit to this classy museum. Highly recommend it.

Albertina is an interesting smaller museum. Often exhibits for old masters are upstairs, while very modern Art inhabits the basement. Do not miss either one.

A great museum with some of the most interesting temporary exhibitions. Later in the afternoon it is not too overcrowded but opening hours are a bit short.

If you have a limited time in Vienna then this is the museum to visit. Located just behind the Opera House it is just the right size for a Lay person. Works by the most famous artists, like Monet, Picasso, Renoir. Drawing and sketches from the notebooks of De Vinci, Rafael , Michelangelo. And you get to see the drawing... More

A lot of art and if thats your thing, this is the place, for a casual art observer, something that is mildly interesting and definitely a lot of background to each exhibit

The museum has two floors of paintings , including those by Monet and Picasso. There a gallery for photography on the ground floor. The museum can take you a couple of hours to go through.

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.
