Fantastib building

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

While the exterior architecture of the building is quite impressive, the interior is very bland. This is supposedly "by design", so that the senses don't get distracted from the art, or something like that. Well, to me, the blandness of the interior was an even greater distraction than any imperial baroque kitsch could ever be. It feels more like an... 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.

I wanted to go here because I read it had a Klimpt work . Well, the Klimpt work was not a painting, just a small sketch used as a study. Other than that the only works of anyone well known were a couple Andy Warhol paintings. The rest was a bizarre, and I mean bizarre mix of modern paintings and... More

Nice building and looks very inviting. My husband purchased tickets and he misplaced the tickets in one of his pockets. Our fault of course but here is the kicker. I only saw 2 other people in the building the whole time we were there. There were 2 ladies who were selling tickets. We went down to the basement and walked... More

This was my first visit to the "new" Lentos museum. I really liked how the (recently updated) permanent collection is curated. Great building with good views of the Danube and Pöstlingberg, nice museum store and overall really inviting and inspiring space. With its location by the river, it reminds me a bit of the Tate Modern in London. The nearby... More

Have visited here many times, to have lunch, to take in an art exhibit and share an evening with friends. It is a lovely place so well maintained and truly alive with the art of the area and Eruope - love it!

Lentos Art Museum houses some incredible modern art and often most interesting exhibitions. It is a beautiful building that changes color when it gets dark. The locations is very beautiful.

The museum is a lot smaller than it seems from the outside. A LOT. The temporary exhibition left me cold, and quite frankly, I didn't understand what the guard was protecting there (seriously, you could not have ruined it). The rest was a bit more interesting. Still, not my favorite museum of its kind, but there is a lot of... More
