Loved all the great artwork at this place. The building ain’t too shabby either. I didn’t get the audio guide (wish I would have) but just tried to follow along with my Rick Steves guidebook but that was a little tough to follow. There are...More

The rulers of the Austro-Hungrian empire were avid collectors and the museum features not only a broad collection of things from Austria, but items "gleaned" from all over the world. The building by itself is interesting enough and the contents are a bonus.

Highlight: Current exhibition of Pieter Brueghel paintings, drawings, & prints, honoring 450th anniversary of his death. A gorgeous building with beautifully appointed galleries and a strong collection. The Bruegels paintings in the permanent collection are a highlight even when the special exhibition isn't going on.

Fantastic. I was told I wouldn’t be disappointed by a member of staff when I emailed earlier this year and I wasn’t!

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.
