Do not confuse this museum, which is excellent, quirky and full of information about Hundertwasser, his philosophy and examples of his work and art, with the Hundertwasser Village nearby, which is really a series of shops selling reproductions of his work, and that of Klimt.
Kunsthaus Wien occupies 4-storey building, though the top two floors were given over to SHOEting Stars, an exhibition of the shoe in design and art when we visited. You can visit either the museum itself, or for a couple of euros more take in the exhibition too. Better still, if you have a Vienna card, you'll get a 20% discount off the entrance fee.
The building itself carries through his dislike of straight lines - even the floors slope away in all directions. The museum has a detailed timeline of his life and then numerous examples of his work, including paintings, prints, tapestries, models of housing developments and power stations, even flags and stamps, together with his notes explaining his philosophy behind some of the works. I didn't know about him before I went, but was intrigued by the leaflets in the hotel - this was a great introduction.
