Wien Museum is maybe less considered in comparison to the other big museums in Vienna, but it's definitely worth a visit! The main building in Karlsplatz is on three levels. The museum is mainly focused on the local city history, with a lot of images...More

10 Euros for a museum that sucks. Okay, so they are planning to do an addition. That only excuses a general lack of upkeep (e.g., not repairing scratches). They did a major renovation in 2006. Hello, I think museum science was well advanced in 2006....More

Much of the museum was closed to visitors due to renovations. The remaining areas of this tired building were marginal. The special exhibit on hip, cool, musical Vienna were a stretch for non-locals.

Nice paintings, armories, city minitures etc. Wished there was a little more text by some paintings since I do not know anything.
