Kunsthalle Wien is Vienna’s exhibition space for international contemporary art and discourse.At its two venues at Museumsquartier and Karlsplatz, contemporary art is not only shown, but also presented in its specific contexts.Thematic group exhibitions, solo exhibitions by international artists, retrospectives by well-known representatives of contemporary art as well as exhibitions by emerging artists add an outstanding profile to Kunsthalle Wien that highlights its relation with both the international and the local art scene.With its broad program Kunsthalle Wien emphasizes that the subjects taken up by contemporary art are manifold. The combination of artistic practice and its theoretical reflection are therefore most important for its many exhibition activities. The intense debate on important questions of our time is also reflected in an extensive program of events such as talks and discussions.

Museum within MuseumQuartier exhibiting a series of changing contemporary art. There’s a pond outside the museum that’s great to hang out and enjoy the energy. There’s even art installations that is made to sit and hang out. Pretty cool.

I know it will depend on what sort of art you like but going to see the current exhibition - Big Objects Not Always Silent was a total waste of money. The exhibition was just in one large exhibition type hall with not a lot going for it at all. The poor chap on the door must have been bored... More

The Automation poster around town got our interested, so we visited the Kunsthalle. The Automation is the only exhibit in this museum. It is a modern exhibit and it would be fair to say, it was a real stretch to suggest this exhibit or museum had anything to do with automation. There is no a lot to see and the... More

It is very difficult to evaluate a venue where there is only temporary exhibitions. This was my second visit to the Kunsthalle and it was very good. They had a free exhibition about political populism. Some of the exhibits were mesmerizing, in particular the blue box with this crazy video. My suggestion is to check out the agenda before coming.... More

I've visited all the museums in the Museumsquartier but the Kunsthalle stuck with me the most. It has a big and open exhibition space, the staff was really nice and there was also free coffee! The exhibition (Individual Stories) itself was great, especially for those who collect themselves.

The modern art museum is housed in the old Royal Stables. No worries, they've shoveled out all the old horse poo and put down some lovely flooring. Ha! The building is not much to look at from the outside, but the installations inside are fantastic. There's also a few cafes in the building where you can grab and afternoon espresso.... More

Do NOT go here unless you are very much into weird stuff. 8 Euros for entrance, and I got to see an exhibit of pencil drawings a child would draw better. The exhibit was titled "the wonder of life" or something like that, and these drawings were supposed to represent life and all its various sides. Well, to say I... More

The fella below put it quite well. The literature Kunsthalle puts out really gives you the idea there will be a stunning display of mind blowing sights and sounds, but don't believe the hype. I just paid 6 euros (discounted) to look at 400 childish doodles arranged on room dividers. See pic attached. I was the only person in the... More

The ads for this museum's Salon Der Angst exhibit make it look fascinating. The reality is more in line with pretentiousness. The exhibits made very little sense. Some of them seemed to be an homage toward an effort to see how ridiculous one could be and still be exhibited in an art museum. There are a lot of phrases like... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
