We spent about 4 hours in this amazing museum... and it was absolutely not enough. It definitely requires more time, so a yearly ticket to Vienna museums could be a good option. The collection and the curation of this museum are stunning. Please visit the...More

We really enjoyed this museum, especially the huge collection of Egyptian artifacts, which was the first collection we viewed. Plenty of other interesting collections too.

Beautiful paintings in an extraordinary setting. Dutch masters and many more. I love how there are comfortable seats in most rooms in order to take a break and/or view the paintings while sitting down. The audio guide was well worth the 5 euros. Highly recommend.

Really fun to have dinner at the museum. Food was really good, loved the veal Tafelspitz. The museum is not only a beautiful building but has a huge selection of arts. You could easily spend a day here. Must see when in Vienna!

We purchased the audio guide. I found it very helpful since you can learn specifically about art in which you are interested. Guided tours may bypass items that interest you.
