  • Without going into the building, it is absolutely essential to access the terrace to enjoy the night view on the Vienna Opera: mandatory photo shoot!

  • Regarding to the advertisments we had high expectations about our visit. Sadly we have been rather disapointed about the amount of artwork and the organisation of the museum. 
  • Since I had not yet exhibitions on many art! I can only say that if you have seen! A beautiful exhibition!

  • A nice place in the city centre.. you can spend some nice time here watching other buildings, taking photos and the crowd movement in general.. a must one time visit place.. onwards is your own choice.. I visited thrice..
  • Brilliant gallery with a variety for all to enjoy. I especially enjoyed Stoitzner's winter landscapes in woodcut. I can recommend the gallery to anyone even if for a short quiet moment. Worth the money!
  • A very fine gallery, somewhat inhibited by its purposefully narrowed scope and lack of major pieces. Recommend scouting out the temporary exhibitions before you schedule a long jaunt.
  • Incredible! The most fantastic part was the secret toilets in the staterooms There was also some art Which I suppose was cool. The contemporary section had its ups and downs. Apparently the "black on black" exhibit is supposed to be for the "patient viewer". But after 3 floors of art, my patience was lacking... Being under 19 means it's free! So get some culture into your Viennese trip for free!
  • Fantastic art museum with high quality exhibitions and some state rooms to explore. There is ample information on each painting in addition to well organized rooms and explanations of art movements so that you can fully understand and appreciate what you are looking at. There is also a nice terrace to relax with a view of the Burggarten and surrounding architecture in central Vienna.
