Some really good exhibitions here. We used it as a way to get out of the rain and really enjoyed it.

We enjoyed the Matisse exhibit as well as the work of his peers, most I was not familiar with. This is a beautiful museum and you can go through this exhibit in an hour. Since it was my second museum of the day, I was "arted out" and probably didn't give it as much attention as I should have.

The Albertina is an impressive palace on the edge of the Hofburg palace complex and well worth a visit. I would recommend the audio tour. The outside terrace has an outstanding view over the Imperial gardens and is free. The entrance fee is modest & gives access to a number of art/sculpture galleries and exhibitions which are refreshed regularly. Great to see memorable paintings up close with unobtrusive security.

If you are not interested in art, then the Café Mozart is just across the street!!

It cost almost 12 Euro each to enter this museum, but I am always happy to pay to see a good collection. On the floor below the entrance I was very happy to see some A couple of Monet, Renoir, several Picasso's and a couple of other favourites. However the remainder of that floor was full of modern art which I hated. Not to be deterred I continued on up to the first floor. I'd read that the building and state rooms were great to see, however the day I visited the State rooms and the entire first floor, were closed to the public. A Matisse exhibition was to open the next day but wasn't available on the day I was there. The second floor contained the Helnwein exhibition which I'd read about on Trip Advisor, and didn't think was something I'd like to see, so in the end I felt that my husband and I had paid almost 24 Euros to see a handful of Impressionist paintings and a few Cubist paintings. Left feeling extremely ripped off.
