Very modern indeed

The building is extremely interesting and made for exhibitions. I liked the Construction_Refletion and Julius Koller ones.

I would have gotten more artistic pleasure in setting the 10 euro note I used for admission on fire. Avoid. This. Place.

My partner and I were at a loose end one afternoon and after reading a brochure on the museum indicating there were pieces from Warhol inside we decided to visit. If you think that a photograph of a bathroom basin is art then this place is for you. However, both my partner and I were quite taken aback as to... More

Vacuous space wasted on second rate conceptual artist. Generally avoid, although on Vienna Pass its was free so no loss.

The contemporary art museum is an impressive edifice and the interior collections unfortunately do not match, however, they do seem to rotate so don't totally write it off as a possible stop. They do offer free WiFi and free app which includes audio guides to the exhibits. This particular collection included the life work of Czech Julius Koller, 3 floors... More

Vienna must be increasingly embarrassed by this edifice. When it was built, it used its spaces for public benefit, and housed hugely impressive exhibitions. Now, as far as I can see, it has entirely lost its way. Two floors were devoted to ping-pong tables and self-obsessed work by a limited artist. Statement art, derivative creations, and clumsy wit then took... More

The mumok: a giant monolithic structure made of dark-granite that stands imposingly over the central courtyard of the MuseumQuartier. It feels like a Imperial Starbase almost, a dark contrast to the baroque architecture of its neighbours. Thankfully it isn’t a secret plan by Siths to cause imbalance in the force. Instead, it’s a modern art museum containing pop art and... More

There are several exhibitions inside, but not so interesting and comparable to others one may see in Vienna. I'm suspect because I don't appreciate contemporary art so much.

I had time to visit one museum on my business trip and I chose this one. Only three exhibits were open while several under installation so very little to see. It seemed like there was no permanent collection so I think it is luck of the draw at the time of your visit. I found the exhibits when I was... More

I can clearly recommend this Museum! It is quite big but not too big! It took us about 1 1/2 h to walk through. Loved it!

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
