Top ways to experience Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Best Museum in Vienna!
Sep 2021
I spent 3-4 hours in this museum and could not see it all. There were so many interesting wings and the cafe was fantastic! There is something for everyone, but I liked the sculptures the best.

Stairs and elevator.

Impressive Painting Collection
Oct 2021
Large collection of famous paintings from French, German, Italian, and Austrio-Hungrian, this place has lots of cool paintings.
The building is pretty and quite well decorated, so even that is a sight to see. It's fairly well divided so you see distinct sections at each place.
There was an ancient Egypt exhibit, a coin collection, but I didn't get to see the special Titian one since that required a separate ticket.
Staff was fairly strict with the mask requirements, but they gave me another one when mine broke.
Overall, good art museum to check out.

Beautiful building

This primary art museum in Vienna hosts a stable exhibit of older German, Austrian and some old Italian masters (Rafael) and Spanish artists (Velazquez). A highlight were the 4 "season" paintings by Arcimboldo, with faces made of plants, vegetables and fruits.
There are also special exhibits. We did not join the long lines for Titian....

Amazing gardens
Oct 2021 • Couples
A lot of famous paintings can be saw here. It's not so big, about 5 to 6 rooms but there are art of very famous artists. I'd recommend 1 hour to visit inside and another hour to visit the gardens

Well organised sections
Oct 2021
Great museum with a very nice interior design. Excellent art exhibition with a variety of paintings from many famous painters. Also, very nice departments with antiquities from Egypt, Oriental, Roman and Greek civilizations. It's well organised but you need enough tme to see everything. However, I'm disappointed as I noticed that everywhere in the museum the inscriptions were both in German and English, while in the Greek section were only in German. When I asked some of the employees why this is happening, noone knew which the right answer was.

Impressive art gallery
Oct 2021
As a Belgian this museum is a must do as it contains one of the most impressive collections of Flemish and Dutch painters in the world. Especially the Breughel room is art at its best. Some of the legendary paintings that were shown to me in school were available here. The Greco-Roman and Egyptian parts of the museum were a bit dull to be honest, especially compared to other museums like the Pergamon museum. The coin collection at the upper floor is only for the real art fans. The collection of Italian and French paintings is also downright impressive, but didn't appeal to me as much as the Flemish and Dutch paintings. The price of admission is a bit steep imo, but the building itself is also a tour de force of architecture and worthwile the price. I stayed here for three hours, but you can lose yourself an entire day here.

Not a lot of people here (during the pandemic) so not much of a line to skip
The customer service people that you need to go to in order to redeem your voucher are not setup to accept it readily. Be ready to email it to them. So, in our cases it would have taken half the time to simply get a normal ticket at the entrance since the line was at worst 10 people. Note: this is during pandemic. Maybe worth when life becomes normal again, but now - not so much

Fabulous museum!
Sep 2021 • Family
A place of pilgrimage for all art lovers. The building itself is a masterpiece, but the collection is absolutely fantastic. Titian, Caravaggio, Bruegel, Velazques, Vermeer and many many others. And all of them are on a permanent view. Add here temporary exhibitions and you’ll get yourself an art paradise! A must in Vienna! Don’t miss out.

Vienna's version of the Lourve
Sep 2021
I was not only impressed by the collection in this 3 floor museum, but the gorgeous palace it is housed in!! I took hundreds of photos and none of them did it justice.

I perfer the sculptures and artifact more than the painting so I would start there. Really impressed by the number of items from Hapsburg Empire as well as many other ancient artifacts.

I had lunch in the cafe which was also a real treat.

Really large comprehensive collection of valuable objects and paintings. If to select one museum in Vienna, this is the place to visit. You could easily spend a whole day there. Better than Belvedere for example. no waiting lines in Aug 21
