Enjoy the colors no matter what was the original reason why artists experimented with so called unnatural, better say unusual colors, take your time to get used to this refreshing style. Inspire yourself and be brave to become creative too. Beauty around us means beauty in our hearts as well.

If you want to see some of the Albertina's world famous collection of graphic art don't bother. Not a single work is on show. When we went the top floor was given over to works by Austrian and German artists, the middle floor had a show by Matisse and the Fauves (there's a very good reason the movement only lasted three years!) and the ground floor to modern Russian stuff. We felt we'd been robbed.

Dear salehurstkate, I see, we did not meet your expectations, we are sorry about that! In many guide books you can read misleading informations: Yes, the Albertina does own more then 900.000 graphics by Michelangelo, Rembrand, Rubens, Raffael, Durer.. etc etc.. BUT works on papers are extremely sensitive to light and therefor very fragil. Thats the reason, all these treasures are on display temporarily within temporary exhibtions. @ Dear tripadvisors, if you want to know what to expect in the Albertina - just let us know right here or check the expositions calender on our Website - in any case we would love to inform you in order to reassure you will spend a nice time in the Albertina!

Great exhibition, but no other masterpieces to see in Albertina. where are the 65.000 prints that the museum website advertises? The exhibition is truly excellent, but I think the museum should be more honest with the description and adjust the price of entrance fee accordingly.

Albertina is a huge building that apart from some historical rooms and a good collection of prints organize top exhibitions of twenty century art. I visited twice the Matisse and the Fauves exhibition, that was really impressive.

I went in to see the Matisse special in late October and it was well presented with a detailed history of the artist and the movement.It was quite crowded.The surprising part of Albertina were a series of rooms decorated in imperial neo classical style with chandeliers,ornate mirrors and statues.Definitely worth a look.
