You can't miss this building, its the odd looking octopus kind of building near Mariahilferplatz. It's on the more expensive side but worth visiting, remember to take pictures of the building itself as well (good photos can be taken under the bridge across the street!)....More

Such a beautiful building from the outside however the current displays are a perfect example of why artists starve... useless photography and so called art. My grandchild's grade 1 class make more interesting paper mache art than what we saw in the Franz West Autotheater......More

The modern building hosts contemporary art and temporary exhibitions. Despite of the architecture be controversial, it is a good initiative in the second larger city of Austria. Worth visiting.

It became rainy so we headed inside for a quick lunch. It’s beautiful inside and the food was good! Take the time to watch the video on how the restaruant was built.

We adore much contemporary and modern art, but this was disappointing. Too much shop/café focus, not so good on the art, whatever your taste.

Exhibits are sparse and odd. Architecture is interesting and the only redeeming quality. Observation deck on top floor was baking hot due to broken AC

Very disappointed that the main gallery was closed, however we could still go to the landing gallery were the view is fantastic & is free.

Great museum, that sticks out from the usual neighborhood architecture. It contains several floors that you can explore, library as well as a gift shop to pick up a souvenir or two.

Was very disappointed. Essentially there are two floors with one currently dedicated to donated chairs from VIP's. The second is dedicated to the building. The sense once you go up stairs is that they are playing a joke on you. The feeling by the time...More

In a town that’s full of old and beautiful architecture, this without doubt stands out a mile. We did not have time to venture inside but it’s such a fun and quirky building that adds character to the skyline. Climb up the hill for a...More
