Owner description: Situated in the very heart of Vienna's City center, the Albertina houses one of the most important art collections of the world. Founded in 1776, the Museum today owns masterpieces by Da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Duerer, Rembrandt etc. These collections are presented in temporary exhibitions. The Batliner Collection "From Monet to Picasso" is permanentely on display and shows the most important works by artists from the age of modernism. The Habsburg Historic Staterooms of the Albertina give an air of Imperial glamour.

Fantastic art museum and it was free for under-19s!! The Batliner collection is amazing, with Monets and Picassos, and the Alex Katz exhibition was also very cool. The film/photography exhibit is also well worth seeing, it was very interesting. There are lockers provided for bags, and you can take a camera round and take as many photos as you like, photography isn't prohibited. We spent a couple of hours here and had a really good time.

If you like modern art, this is a must visit place. During the time when we visited, there was also a photography exhibition that was simply fantastic, but it's not a par on the paintings upstairs. You can spend easily half a day here!

Well, you think you are going to see one of the world's largest collection of prints: there is absolutely nothing!!! The few things on display are fac simile, just read the information on each of the very few works: unbelievable! As for. The rest, Monet and Picasso have estabilished themselves as 'art brands' across Europe, virtually tourist traps: this is what the culturalindustry wants, ok, but Albertina was a real disappointment, don't go, don'twastemoney!

Dear Alessandro L, I am sorry to read you had been disappointed, Your visit in July 2014 took place exactly in between of temporary exhibitions: The exhibition "Durer, Michelangelo, Rubens - 100 Masterpieces of the Albertina" finished in the end of july 2014. The next exhibition "Joan Miro" startet in September 2014. You did not like the current exhibtion "Blow up", "Alex Katz" and the permanent Collection with Monet, Kandinsky, Nolde, Picasso... We regret that we did not manage to inform you correctly - disappointments would have been prevented !

The Albertina museum is one of the premier art museums in Vienna, along with the Leopold museum, to be sure. In July 2014, the Albertina featured three principal collections, each engaging, interesting and very well explained. From Monet to Picasso, the Batliner Collection presents some 500 trail-brazing works of modern art. Plus, a collection of Alex Katz works depicts cool New York style. The Albertina is a must. Easy to find (in the Museum Quarter). Go.

We spent about 90 minutes here enjoying the Monet/Picasso special exhibit. We also took in the regular exhibit, the Katz exhibit and the special film/photo exhibit. The regular exhibit is housed in palace rooms which we appreciated as much as the art on display. We picked up one audio guide and shared it which worked out well.
