Fascinating collection of armour, was a bit disappointed in the Ephesus Collection, but at least that means that plenty was left on site in Turkey!

One of the most impressive art collections on the planet. Well organised and laid out. Far, far, far too big to see it all in a day. Well worth a visit, even if you only have time to see a fraction of it.

The Kunsthistorisches museum is a very large building. The interior itself has some fantastic decor, including Klimt friezes. Try to decide which area you wish to focus on, since the collection is too large to view in 1 day. The European art is arranged in...More
