The name of this place pretty much tells it all: if you want to get a very useful and pleasant introduction to the history of Vienna this is your place. In fact, it is the only such venue I know of that will get you up to speed on city history.
With a few exceptions the museum is organized chronologically, the chronology more or less ending in the 19th century. Particularly interesting are models and images of the city through time.
While not an art museum per se, there's quite a lot of pictorial art available, including a nicely presented set of Biedeermeier paintings and lots and lots of Klimt sketches.
Entrance is free on Sundays!
