We were not expecting the Louvre, but the permanent collection that included Expressionist works and a special exhibition took less than an hour to see and was less interesting than many much smaller museums.

We wanted something other than d churches and trams so walled from the Hauptplatz along the Danube. The building is amazing. One space for the cafe and one for the museum completely separate but joined by the roof! It makes the building look massive but...More

We popped into this museum because they had a special exhibit entitled "Psycho Drawing" which caught our attention. Art made by patients of an Austrian psychiatric hospital, set alongside art made by other Austrian artists. Fascinating. Permanent collection is OK - not great by NYC...More

It wasn't worth visiting the exhibitions though the building is a good example of art with a wonderful view of the river Danube. Parking next to the building cannot be payed by foreign bank card.

The collection is quite simple but the building worth looking. There is an interesting Schiele inside, with 2 Warhols and contemporary Austrian artists.
