I hadn't even heard of Hundertwasser before I visited with Kunsthaus with my family just after Christmas. I was looking for a museum that would be interesting for my 11 and 9 as well as me and my husband and this was a home run. The building is super cool, fun and green, making it the perfect setting in which to display the artist's singular, purposeful work - in the same joyful, creative spirit as Gaudi, certainly, but not derivative. I loved the quotes throughout the museum by Hundertwasser himself, which gave insight into the artist's passion and purpose. Aside from his artistic talent, he is worth admiration for his environmentalism. I am a fan now and so are my kids, with whom Hundertwasser's art - so full of joy and color and life - really resonated. The temporary exhibit on photo booths was fun, if not profound. You can even take your own photo booth picture (we did) in the lobby for a couple Euros. Parents be advised that the Photo Booth exhibition includes some hilarious, but definitely rated R pictures of knuckleheads, um, exposing themselves in photo booths. It kind of sneaks up on you so walk a few paces ahead of the kids. Make time to have lunch or a snack in the funky museum cafe - the food was surprisingly good and the service was quite friendly, as was the patient, helpful guy at the ticket counter. The Hundertwasserhaus apartment block is a quick walk from the Kunsthaus and worth a visit, as well. Overall the most fun and unique museum experience I've had in a long time - highly recommended!
