    This is a beautiful building that used to be someone's residence and now its a wonderful art museum. We enjoyed our visit there on our recent trip to Europe. The building itself is gorgeous and the art, especially the Gustav Klimt collection is amazing. Highly recommend a visit.

    Great way to spend a couple of hours if you are a very big art fan. I was there only because of some Monet and Picasso paintings. It was still a rather good museum with plenty of modern art exhibits

    The Leopold Museum is a must-see museum if you are interested in the early 20th century art and architecture of Vienna. Their permanent Vienna 1900 exhibition includes a gallery dedicated to Klimt, including a reproduction of his studio plus a room dedicated to the life & work of Klimt’s long-time friend and muse, Emilie Flöge. There is a separate gallery for the Vienna Secession with photographs and artifacts. The Leopold has an extensive collection of Egon Scheile paintings including a number of landscapes (which are amazing!). Oscar Kokoshka and other contemporary artists are represented as well. There are galleries devoted to the architects of Vienna: Loos, Hoffman, Otto Wagner, Moser, Olbrich, and more. This museum provides a great overview of the artists and the architects and designers, bringing context to what we have been seeing as we walk about Vienna. Thanks to Rudolf and Elisabeth Leopold who spent some 50 years collecting art!!

    My partner and myself went to see a theatre performance in Halle E inside the Museumsquartier of Vienna (June 2023). On the whole, this is a quite amazing place with colourful seats, spread all around, inside, on the square, to sit abd watch the world going by. It is simply amazing as well as heart-warming how LGBTQIA+ friendly Vienna has become nowadays, a great move forward indeed. Go go go to Vienna🌈🌈🌈

    Many folks know of the Hundertwasser House - but this is the place that is a museum of much of his work - painting, silk screens, architecture. And a ton of info on his philosophy and ideas. Fascinating - one of the more interesting artists/architects that I've ever seen. His concepts and viewpoint were striking.

    I had a very wonderful morning at MAK due in no small part to the very kind and very informative woman at the museum's reception. There seemed not to be any English language maps and this woman (sorry I didn't ask her name) very kindly explained not just where and what to see but also gave all the exhibits a context that a mere map would not have provided. If you would like to experience a bit of what ground breaking Viennese design was like at the turn of the twentieth century, as well as, other equally amazing exhibits, please visit MAK.

    This villa is certainly worth a visit. Ernst Fuchs was one of the most famous Austrian painters and sculptors. He was a co-founder of the "Viennese School of Phantastic Realism". E. Fuchs also was a composer, author, architect and planned the scenery for operas. His former residence plus its gardens are a wonderful sight for one's eyes.

    2 adults and a 13 year old. Great fun, takes about 1 hour. It's not very big, but enough illusions to create great memories (and photos). I would order tickets up front to skip the line.

    I was in this museum before its reconstruction. Coincidentally, I was in Vienna at the time when it was reopened to the public after long time renovation (reopen on December 6, 2024). Upon entering, I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that admission is free. Those who booked entry online for a certain hour could go inside immediately. Those who did not have this reservation had to wait for a while at the entrance before a museum employee let them in.

    The exhibition inside shows the history of Vienna. The name of this permanent exhibition is “Vienna. My History”. There is a 20ft-model of St. Stephen’s cathedral and two models of the city in different time periods. Paintings (including Gustav Klimt’s portrait of Emilie Flöge), clothes, armor... You can see here museum’s mascot Poldi, the Prater Whale.

    On the third floor there is a restaurant and café and a terrace with a spectacular view of the Karlskirche.

    Just a few blocks away from the better known Kunsthistoriches Museum, the Academy of Fine Arts has a wonderful art gallery which is open to the public. I came for Hieronymus Bosch's "The Last Judgment" and was pleasantly surprised to find a number of other old master paintings. The current exhibit "History Tales: Fact and Fiction in History Painting" is well worth a visit.

    Beautiful building. The admission is cheaper if an installation is in progress. That was the case for me, so I paid 7 EUR rather than 12, which was all good because I was solely interested in the Beethoven Frieze anyway.

    I agree with other reviews that 12 is a bit on the high side. But worth it if you can net a cheaper admission fee like in my case! Finally, if you have the Vienna City Card, you can rent the audio guide for free. They will want to keep your ID card as a deposit, so be aware of that. (I got by with an Amex credit card because Secession doesn’t take Amex anyway.)

    For fans of Gustav Klimt, this is worth a visit. The original cottage that Klimt rented from 1912 to 1918 is faithfully preserved as part of the larger villa. Klimt's studio provides a feel for the artist's way of working. There is no original art here, but there is a sense of history and presence that provides insight into the artist's unique style. There are also photos of lost Klimt artworks that were destroyed in a fire during WWII.

    This was worth the trip of 3 hours on a rainy day. The photos are out awesome and displayed well with great lighting in a beautiful space. You can easily spend an hour or more here... take it slowly and enjoy a time gone by.

    The amount of the collection is beyond anyone ‘s imagination. I can’t believe that so many crockery was necessary at that time.
