“A Terrific Museum, Stylist, Enjoyable and Educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

To think that in four days in Vienna we almost missed this gem. Given other "priorities" (which should have been lower) and a thunderously rainy afternoon, we arrived at the Albertina less than an hour before closing. We rushed a bit but still managed to see the core collection, including the fabulous Durer , Da Vinci and other prints. So give this more time and put it at the top of your list for Vienna. If I had had more time, I believe it likely that I would have profited by getting the audio guide. There's so much to see in Vienna. I'd have in retrospect to put the Albertina at the top of my list, although the Treasury and the National Library, for instance, weren't shabby either. Read and believe some of the other more articulate glowing and recent "excellent" reviews. While we spent less than an hour, obviously 2-3 hours would be ideal.

“A nice mix of arts and styles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Located in the heart of the city, this place really offers a wide range exhibitions accessible to the most and less educated.
Whether you only like to see some exhibitions or you are a fan of a precise artist you always find the right exhibition.
The set-up is usually very clever which avoids affluence in front of certain pièces.
Apart from the beautiful permanent collection (from Monet to Picasso) I personally appreciate the photography exhibitions there, the lighting is always very well set.
You can take a guided tour and audio guides are also available in numerous languages.
Definitely recommend!

“A Gem of a Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

When doing my research for this trip, the Albertina didn't hit my radar. However, I wandered in one rainy afternoon, and was so glad I did. The Durer exhibit was incredible, and the museum has a ton of amazing art collections. I went to Schonbrunn, Belvedere, Hofberg, Kunsthistorisches Museum... Albertina was the best!

“Amazing Albertina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Fabulous place steeped in history and culture. Saw paintings by Picasso, Durer, Michaelangelo, Ruebins to mention but a few. Wonderful story telling of the Duchess and her husband (Albert). Well worth the 11.50 euro entry fee.
