#1 of 16 in Museums in Cesky Krumlov
Learn more about the life and art of a major figurative painter of the early 20th century and protege of Gustav Klimt at Egon Schiele Art Centrum. Apart from paintings and drawings, the center houses an exhibit about the artist's life and work, including childhood photographs, sketchbooks, his studio furniture, and a plaster death mask. His nude portraits are rich in anatomical detail and were controversial at the time, forcing the artist to leave town after only two years. A big painted city map, in a small room on the top floor, shows the locations of the various landscapes in Schiele's paintings. Amenities include a cafe and a shop selling books, posters, postcards, and T-shirts. A visit to Egon Schiele Art Centrum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cesky Krumlov trip itinerary maker app to plot your vacation.

  • The memorial museum where the mother lived was visited a lot of years ago, but there is a Seele museum in the Vienna suburbs tool now. The museum, which remodeled the prison building, is located on the Danube, with paintings from the Leoporte Art Museum and the Belvedere Art Museum, along with the materials, and a wonderful statue of Seele. Access to Heiligenstadt at U4 Metro station and get off at the S40 Stadt. The museum is about 500 meters away. It is better to check the opening hours and access when visiting.

  • The cultural center is named after the most prominent Czech artist. The historic building of the old brewery was purchased to accommodate the exhibits. In less than a year, the buildings of the former brewery were repaired, and the new exhibition complex was opened with a total area of 3,000 square meters for the public. The halls contain valuable works from Czech painting in the early 20th century.

  • Not that big a fan of Egon Schiele, but the ambiance and structure of the museum was very interesting. Their exhibition was about the woman's view (the world through the eyes of woman artists). The art in that exhibition was amazing. You can really feel the theme of each artist there. You can read about the controversial life of Schiele there. The museum does get hot in the summer, so don't assume it's well air conditioned. (Like if you found this useful)
  • This museum has a huge collection of Schiele’s paintings that are impressive. You will also learn about the biography of the painter and will discover the historic border relations between Austria and Czechia.
  • Small museum with a few works and bit of a story about Egon Schiele. Entry price 8EUR per person I thought was a bit much and the other exhibitions aren't very interesting. Disappointed you couldn't take photos inside the Egon Schiele exhibition.
  • Really nice ambience and atmosphere, comfy.
  • Great! I have visited this gallery not so long ago and I gotta say it is amazing. Combining their architecture with amazing showcase of art. Vast and big. Recommend to soend about an hour or two visiting this place.
