The Museum is easily located, the map from the Tourist Information office at Stephansplatz says to take Tram 1 and stop at Radetzkyplatz. When you get off at this stop, the brown signs direct you to the place and if in doubt ask the residents or shopkeepers on the way. It's tucked into a residential area, and you recognise the eclectic composition of colours and forms from the outside. Designed like a child's imaginative play with primary colours ad forms, it's part Emerson, part Gaudi with its back- to- nature concept and esoteric symbolism. There are only two forms, so it's manageable, but how I wish the rental of the audioguide did not require a deposit of id like passport or driver's licence ( every tourist is told to leave these in the hotel safe), so I had to do without interpretations from an authoritative source. still have to find out what those minarets mean!
The gift shop is ridiculously expensive while the Tian Bistro on site is wonderful to look out ( similar undulating floors, bright maze of colours and lots of greenery after Hunderwasser's concepts) but from my lunch there, I guess the main branch would have better food so best to seek out the central Tian vegetarian restaurant. however the Bistro is great to relax in, have coffee and tea and imbibe of their delicious cakes and snacks.
