This was the first art museum I visited in Vienna and I was truly impressed. First of all, you can film or take photos (not possible some of the museums). Then, the building itself is splendid – including the interior: staircase, decorations. Then, the items itself, the numerous artists (painters) included here – from Europe, but not exclusively, and from many periods of time. A true treasure, in my opinion.
Kunsthistorisches Museum is one of the great art museums of Europe. Holding the collections of the Imperial family, it also features many other collections such as armour and decor. Cellini’s salt cellar is one of the most famous of the latter collection. But the European paintings from the Renaissance and Baroque eras are the stars. The purpose built building is easy to navigate and the cafe in the rotunda is also worth a visit.
This was a beautiful museum, both in terms of its collection and its architecture. It's a structural twin to the Natural History museum, which faces it on the other side of Maria-Theresien-Platz. I was thrilled by the collection - especially because they have a Caravaggio.
Quite possibly one of the most beautiful art museums I've ever been in. The Museum stays open late some nights and we visited on one of those nights when it wasn't busy at all. It has a beautiful collection and the rooms and arrangement really added to the whole experience. Comfortable couches were scattered throughout and we spent a lovely hour camped out on one just enjoying the moment.
