In a palatial building, Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien exhibits the Habsburgs' extensive art collection, which was amassed over centuries. Designed by architect Gottfried Semper, the museum is mirrored by an identical building on the opposite side of the Ringstrasse, which houses the Naturhistorisches Museum. Discover works by artists like Vermeer and Rembrandt, as well as a large collection by Pieter Brueghel the Elder. An audio guide offers an in-depth exploration of close to 600 works in the museum, including commentary on the building itself. In addition to the masterpieces on display, the museum includes a reference library of more than 256,000 manuscripts, maps, and historical prints relating to art and cultural history.

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...

One of the best art history museums in Europe with exhibition from the ancient Egypt until Renaissance and more. Sculptures, paintings, decorative artwork, famous authors, everything perfectly exposed and presented. You may easily spend an entire enjoyable day and don't miss the gorgeous museum Cafe before leaving.
Such a lovely tour! The lady knew so much about everything she showed us and encouraged questions. She also made clear that the museum respects the cultures who's artifacts it's displaying. Great experience
