“Something for Everyone”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Our first impression was that we felt like we had great access to the art on display. You could be up close and very personal with these masterpieces. There were six of us in our party and we all had different favorites. Don't miss the drawings by Da Vinci.

“Impressive but no directions for the visit”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This is an impressive building and art collection with a very rich and interesting history. Worth a visit. Go early and off peak (meaning, during the week if you can); if you leave it for late in the morning during the weekend you are guaranteed a huge messy line to get a ticket. Beware that there was (at least when we visited) no floorplan or map available in English; there is also no sign or direction to guide your visit which makes visiting the huge building a bit confusing and, sometimes, inefficient. But, still worth a visit.

“Wonderful alternative or complement to Kunsthistoriches Museum”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Nice museum in a few parts: 1) The Palace rooms 2) The Batliner Collection - includes Picasso, Monet, Klimt, Chagall, Dégas 3) The permanent collection - many "studies" to established works, pieces that trace the royal family's history. Photos without flash are permitted in Sections #1-2.

Perfect way to spend an hour or so, especially on a rainy day downtown. Use the W/C in the paid areas of the museum. Convenient location at Karlsplatz subway station. Must get audioguide if you can't understand German; notes in the museum are only in German. A bit pricey at ~15 Euros for everything, but worth it.

The Kunsthistoriches Museum is far superior, but can be overwhelming - this is a compact alternative.

Interesting museum in a beautiful building. Unfortunately, the Do & Co cafe in the museum was closed for renovation, from earlier visits we know that it is the best museum cafe in Vienna, with a very attractive terrace.
