I am usually the least likely to like Modern Art; however, there were several exhibits especially those of the visual arts with moment that I enjoyed. In addition the Museum Quarter is an history architecture and structure and this building sticks out but I really loved the black stone edifice. The art inside was different than most modern art studios and I really enjoyed my visit here. It was my favorite part of the Museums quarter.

I am usually very excited to visit modern art museums, this time I was very disappointed. My son joined me, and while he really enjoyed the Banksy exhibition in Prague, he kept on asking ‘what is the point of this?’. Sadly I have to agree.

The exception to this was the Roma exhibit, which was small but hauntingly beautiful. The combination of the music and the plants was absolutely mesmerizing.

A previous reviewer stated ‘pretentious and lacking substance’. This ia probably the best description I’ve come across.

Terrible staff. Very rude and arrogant "students" of art. They told us that we do not respect the paintings because we were in 0,5 meter distance.
Additionally, site was advertising Andy Warhol and there was nowhere in the museum.
Some paintings were terrible and THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME!!

I don’t know much about modern art, but I’m open minded and like to do different things. However, this was a complete waste of time and money. Several floors of the museum were empty and out of use, those that weren’t were full of pretentious garbage that means nothing to most people. What a rip off. Stick to the Albertina and Belvedere.

The exibtions where tottaly dispointing with an introductory text that generally did not fit with the objects exposed. The visitors seemed "lost on the (lack) of translation". There was some videos with some political/cultural interest lost in the midlle of exhibitions. I think that before going is necessary to check carefully what is happening there.

The very first time I came here it was a stunning exhibition of new and 20th century art. It gave me faith in culture, and I was proud for Vienna to hold such a collection.
But... this big grey box has gotten worse every time I come. A year ago it was a bunch of wedding dresses. This March was a bunch of 'conceptual art', which is ironic because I think they missed the concept of a museum or exhibition. Junk. Nothing but junk. Kind of embarrassing at first, but by the end I felt physically ill that such a once-great institution has sunk to such a level.
Now let me be clear- I enjoy all genres and eras when it comes to art. I appreciate concepts that I may not be to my liking. But this was pure crap. A carpet with things hidden underneath. Bar stools of painted cardboard. Videos of objects not moving. Ya get me? Sheer lifelessness.
Considering the garbage they put in here, I'm wondering if it was bad that only half the space of this huge building was used. (Old joke- 'This food tastes horrible, and the portions are so small.') Now the areas (and floors) that weren't used were not roped off or anything, which gave the security guards an excuse for yelling at me. What, I'm forbidden to look through this open door into this empty room?
Even though I only paid the 5 euro Thursday night entry fee, I felt like a sucker.

I would have gotten more artistic pleasure in setting the 10 euro note I used for admission on fire. Avoid. This. Place.

The museum was quite an experience. It was very modern, as you would expect. There were a lot of floors but the lift was fast and efficient. Not sure I would recommend it unless you are a really big fan of modern art. My photos paint their own photo.
Note: the Picasso is worth seeing, of course!

A brutal building, and not an enjoyable visit at all. Most of the “art” was laughable. The building interior was as unwelcoming as the exterior.

What a shocking waste of an incredible space and interesting building. We have just visited Mumok museum and found it to be an UTTER waste of money and time that I will never get back. I am an artist, and I appreciate art from all areas and ages, yet this is a display reminiscent of a low level GCSE art class. Poor quality exhibits, without any talent whatsoever.
But what really ruins that whole experience is the overzealous student 'guards' who follow you around and shout across the room when you walk within a metre of these tatty non descriptive 'treasures' in an attempt to publicly shame you for having the audacity to look at an exhibit. No one is actually touching these things (most are framed with glass anyway) and quite frankly if anyone did, then a little damage could actually add some interest. These pretentious students are clearly wanting to show some authority here, but the boy who was young enough to be my grandson, who shouted at me across the room because I leaned towards a print , was the last straw! We walked out.....I wish that I had read previous reviews before wasting my money!! It's the worst museum that I have ever visited and not one exhibit was worthy of being there...
