It is a very huge beautiful building with lots of collections. You will enjoy it better if you are very into Roman, Greek and Egyptian history or you have studied a bit beforehand.

Surprisely, the heavily bulit audio reception man is not very polite and with "the I don't care attitude" . He seems preoccupied with the computer in front of him. And did not give me the floor plan for audio. I have to run back there to get it after seeing some people having them on their hands. Though I rent the audio guide for €4, I did not make use of it much like most of the people. We are just browsing and walking to cover everything. 90% of the paintings are religious like most of the Roman style paintings. You will see a lot of Eygptian tombs and Roman sculptures as well.

They have a bridge for people enjoying Klimt's paintings on the arches. Just a few pieces. This is the highlights.

We bought the audioguide for the museum, 4 Euro each. We were told if we listened to everything it would take us 18 hours to the see the musueum. The first floor had artifacts from Egypt and Rome. The second floor had room after room of beautiful paintings. We spent approx. 3-4 hours in musuem, including lunch. There is a small cafe in the center.

This is the most magnificent building by itself, but inside are some works of art that I have only seen in books.. Sublime and amazing collection displayed with taste and grace.
