Can't!!! Apartment booked, plane tickets booked Waaaaah :-) But there was a spectacular exhibit, one of the largest in the world, in Richmond VA a few years back.

But thanks for the reply. The fantastic thing about Vienna is that there is always an unending selection of things to do. The Albertina's Durers will be back in Vienna this trip after being on tour last time.

We visited the Kunsthistorisches and saw the Faberge temporary exhibition, finding it similar but noticeably smaller than the Faberge exhibition held in Hong Kong last year. There are a few of the famous Faberge eggs and a fair number of other Faberge works, jewellery and other items on display. The exhibition area is a bit small and crammed with visitors so be prepared to be a bit patient to see the main Faberge eggs.

In the end, the exhibition is quite small and probably not worth the high museum entry fee to see on its own. However, if you are intending to visit the Kunst, its included in the general entry ticket price so you might as well visit the temporary Faberge exhibition while it is showing. Check out the Kunsthistorisches website for details about the special exhibition if you need more details.

We were pretty disappointed as the number of items was very small with only a few must sees. A waste of time to be honest. Also some of it very poorly lighted as you stand in the light whilst reading and looking.

I also wish the Art Museum would get a proper exit as having to fight through all the people trying to get in through the small entrance is ridiculous.

Spent some quality time with Hunters In The Snow though ...
