Owner description: The Leopold Museum is a unique treasure-house of Viennese Jugendstil, the Wiener Werkstätte and Expressionism. It is the most-visited museum of the city's hottest cultural site, the MuseumsQuartier, and it houses the most significant and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world, as well as masterworks by Secession founder Gustav Klimt. Tip: The museum's panorama windows offer a wonderful view of central Vienna with Maria Theresa Square and the Hofburg Palace.

This was the one museum we chose to visit during our stay in Vienna. My only regret was not having more time. I'm not a big museum goer or a big art aficionado, but this museum was a fascinating introduction to Austrian art and the Secessionist movement. I even found myself in the museum store afterwards buying art books to take home. My only criticism is that the notes accommodating paintings would benefit from a little less of the esoteric hyperbole that tends to be common in the art world

Just loved the Leopold. Loved the way the art was set out. Most enjoyable. Great history of Viennese painters. Very interesting photographs too. Well worth a visit.

A great collection of European art from 19th and 20th century. Nice modern setting in the old city center.

I have to admit that I went here right after Kunthaus, which I didn't particularly enjoy, so it's possible I took more away from this given the preceding experience. But I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits here. The Leopold did an amazing job featuring two Austrian painters and provided great background on their careers and progression. The exhibits were set up sequentially and covered the phases of their technique. The guide also covered background on the collector and his passion in collecting. There were also smaller exhibits throughout. The collection was just the right size, and you were able to make your way through the museum without feeling like you were simply seeing the same art in repetition. You only need about 2 hours and it's part of the museum quarter so it it's not your cup of tea, there's a lot of other options immediately nearby.
