“Cool concept, missed some on execution”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went to Vienna without much of a plan, so after some quick research on Trip Advisor and Lonely planet, we decided to spend an afternoon at Museum Quarter.

It is a brilliant idea - use historic buildings in a one block radius and sell package tickets to see as many or as few as you would like. However, the museums we chose weren't exactly what we expected. We went to the Leopold Museum and the Museum of Modern Art (MUMOK).

Leopold was interesting and I especially enjoyed the collection and life story of Gustav Klimt. MUMOK was showing a fashion exhibit, which I had much higher hopes for. While some of it was interesting, there wasn't much there. It took us several hours to get through the Leopold collections, but less than an hour at MUMOK.

Overall, it is not a bad day to spend a steamy August afternoon. I would recommend it, if you want to get out of the elements, but Vienna has such beautiful architecture and parks, I suggest staying outside, if you can.

“Spend all day in the Quarter!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

See historic old stuff (Museums), and modern new stuff (MOMAK)... there's literally something for everyone all in one place! There are always new exhibits at the MOMAK, and the Architecture building - we came across a fashion as art exhibit at MOMAK and the Best of Architecture Awards 2011 when we went in September. We also found time to lounge in the now iconic Quarter 'lounger' chairs.

“Variety of Museums”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Take a look at what museums are there before you go, but also let yourself decide once you get there. There is so much to see! Great artwork and a beautiful area.

“Might be okay if you have kids”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Stores, play areas, and museums that are not worth seeing unless you're going to see modern Art. Not quite sure what the point of this place is.

“Do not miss”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Great place. Here you can feel Vienna. Buy the ticket pass that suites you ( i bought the 3 Museums pass - Leopold / Kunsthalle / Mumok for 17€ ) and have fun. I was staying 4 days very close so it was a perfect combination.
