Great museum, lovely place, beautiful view, great exhibitions

The building is really interesting, half old half modern. They have a lot of different and interesting exhibitions. The cafe has an incredible view to the Danube, worth a visit!

I wish I had looked up the TripAdvisor reviews before I visited as I would have allocated a lot more time than I did to this vast and eclectic museum. As it is, allow me to join in the chorus of "what a pleasant surprise"! The museum really is several museums in one with archaeology, paintings, a coin collection, various... More

Thiw started out as a way to spend some time on a Sunday afternoon. The museum had a ecclectic range - from early Christian artwork to modern technology to wildlife. Probably not worth more than a couple of hours.

We visited this museum on a snowy January day. The access to the museum was steep and slippery but once inside we had a very enjoyable time. We had lunch in the restaurant which overlooked the city. They were able to provide us with an English menu and service and food were both very good. The museum itself was very... More

Castle built in the 13th century. Only walls really exist and have been incorporated into an excellent museum which deals with regional Austrian history. Worth s quick visit. Nice restaurant also.

We discovered this museum on our last day in Linz. What a surprising delight! There was a special exhibit on display from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence with numerous outstanding paintings. It was also surprising as to its size, four wings surrounding a courtyard on multiple levels along with a restaurant. Some of the wings include an armor exhibit, technology... More

This museum is nothing special. Not well organized, no clear way / direction through the museum, also not well marked where you should go next. It's all in German language only, so not very foreigners / turists friendly. No central theme through the castle, just a mish-mash of everything, some parts are even repeating. Apart from nice views from the... More

Although housed in a modern-looking building, the museum is a treasure trove of ancient art! Make this your starting point and keep aside atleast 2-3 hours to leisurely stroll across this place. There is so much it offers, including a view of the city.
