This was an amazing museum with a wide range of art and objects. Really interesting was the massive collection of gold and jeweled items. One of the best collections I have seen in any museum. The art gallery is quite the sight as well. We...More

Must visit, this build offers so much! Beside a vast number of artworks, the building is so beautiful, which I cannot have enough time to admire it. The museum also offers great cafe with elegant food. Spend time here as much as you can.

I’m not a big museum guy, but this one is cool. It has exhibits for adults, teens, kids, everyone. And the interior is stunning. Every room is amazing. You’ll find yourself staring at the ceilings as much as the exhibits. Well worth the entrance fee.

This beautiful museum is worth seeming inside and out. It is a spectacular vision of architecture, grand marble stairways and hallways full of historic art. I enjoyed the Egyptian and Roman exhibits. The Gustav Klimt wall/ceiling painting did not disappoint. There is a huge selection...More

The collection of art works is simply beyond. You could spend hours gazing at them and still not have seen everything. Because of the set up of the museum you aren't bothered by the masses of people. You can simply enjoy. The museum shop is...More

The museum is of course something special. What makes the experience terrible is that you can’t go out and then go back in again. It costs 15 euro and you can’t even go out on the stairs to have some fresh air. And you will...More

A very good museum with a great collection. Well presented. Special this year was Stairway to Klimt so we could se his painting inside the building from closeby. Egypt part and de paintings were the best parts for me.

I would recommend renting audio player, you don’t want to miss anything. It will take you a couple hours to see everything. They have some amazing stuff. Highly recommend this place.

We purchased the audio guide. I found it very helpful since you can learn specifically about art in which you are interested. Guided tours may bypass items that interest you.
