Had never heard of this museum before and it is small and dedicated to German and Austrian art. Klimt’s portrait of Adele is its central feature and it is beautiful. There are other pictures by him too. The collection of Art Deco jewellery and household...More

And that's Gustav Klimt's portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. There's a Mona Lisa aspect to this piece: is it famous because it's great or is it great because it's famous? Either way it's wonderful, more so because the gallery forbid selfies EXCEPT below stairs, where there...More

We went to see the famous golden woman, gustav Klimt’s masterwork and that alone was worth the trip as it is so hard to reproduce that luster and detail. But also the Josef Hoffman furniture, jewelry, glassware and many other pieces is astounding. I loved...More

First, they will take your water/bottle. Security will check your bag, then you go through the metal detector. Now until September, I think it will be half price admission. The gallery was on two floors. But, not really, the second floor was only open. Very...More

Please read the info for visitors on the website. When I arrived people were dithering about what to do with their bottled water & holding up the line. No food or drink - not even empty bottles - allowed in your bags so come prepared....More

The museum can be hard to find, but once you are there one can enjoy the great mainly Austrian art, mainly from 1900-1930.

This museum is pricey and had only two open floors in July, but its offerings are powerful. Seeing so much work by Oscar Kokoschka was worth the admission. Klimt's golden portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauche is a highlight.There are Egon Schiele landscapes and work from the...More

My wife simply had to see Gustav Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (Woman in Gold) and chose the day on which there was free admission. This is because the entrance prices are high for such a small gallery. I found waiting in line for over...More

Walked in straight off the street. Lost our drink bottles and I can say the Woman in Gold was amazing to see but left a little underwhelmed by the none friendly staff and loosing our water. In and out in less than 20 minutes.
