Highly underrated, the Art History museum in Vienna is one of Europe's most impressive art collections. The interior of the building is also spectacular in itself - especially the cafe.

You will have time to see them both and they are both well worth it. We had a private guide who was very good at moving us around the exhibits and very knowledgeable in art history. We saw them both in 3 hours.
