The Albertina may be overshadowed by the Kunst Historisches Museum and the Museum Quarter, but it is a fine museum, with an interesting permanent collection and frequently excellent shows downstairs. da Vinci, Michaelangelo, and Raphael drawings. Durer. Lots of stuff about the Duke and the Hapsburgs around 1780 (pretty uninteresting to me -- so I skipped it, except to inhale the sense of empire in the collection), Picasso, Klee, Modigliani, a fascinating room of Russians (ca. 1900-25), did I say Picasso -- one room has two Klee, a Bacon, and maybe a dozen Picassos -- you could spend all day there. Excellent late 19th/early 20th century German paintings.
Don't miss it.
