I do find some of Vienna’s museums just too avant-garde; this is an outstanding collection of craft and design that is well worth a few hours.
The MAK is one of the most important museums of its kind worldwide.

Vienna Museum
#25 of 143 Museums in Vienna
I love museums of cities, as they tend to show more than just fine art - a social and economic history comes across, as well.
Wien Museum is maybe less considered in comparison to the other big museums in Vienna, but it's definitely worth a visit!

Rarely do wax museums allow visitors to ''connect'' with the figures, take pictures and even have props prepared for you.

Clock Museum in Wien is one of the lesser known museum of the Museums Quartier.

Silberkammer
#30 of 143 Museums in Vienna
The Imperial silver collection is the first of a trio of adjoining museums found in the Hofburg complex.
Most likely, you will start your tour here since the normal route takes you through the Silver museum on to the Sisi museum before entering the Imperial apartments.
