It is not too big, we were able to go through almost all rooms within 3 hours. I liked the benches in the middle of some rooms with huge painting. It allowed us to sit and relax, while scanning every detail of a painting. Highly...More

I had a very tight schedule and short stay in Vienna, but this museum worth it. Don't go to Vienna and miss it. It can consume a whole day if you are into the details. But as I had a tight schedule, it took 1.5hrs...More

Every time I visit the Kunsthistorisches I find a lot to enjoy! Plan on taking at least 4 hours, but you can easily find enough to view to take a full day. A not-to-be-missed stop in Vienna!

A striking building housing a magnificent collection. If you have limited time it is still worth the visit as you can do a "once-around" following the map to see the highlights of the collection - and there are many. This is ground zero for Brueghel...More

This is the biggest musuem in Vienna and it may take complete day to visit it. I had time to visit only 1/8th of this musuem.

There is a good mix of pieces in this museum from renaissance paintings to roman statues and Egyptian sarcophagus. But the most impressive thing about this museum is the building itself with its gorgeous plaster work and painted ceilings. They've really maintained its historic grandeur...More

I spent most of the day here and felt like I had barely scratched the surface. Overwhelmed at the amount to see.

Brueghel, Van Eyck, Rubens and Rembrandt of the Dutch School are enough to make this Museum world class. Yet these masterpieces are surrounded by paintings that will give you a lifelong memory of the history of European art. Allow at least two hours.

We spent several hours here, and we wished for more time. There is just way too much to see in a short period. The art collections are unbelievable and the coin collections were mind-boggling! The opulence is hard to grapple, from the variety of marble...More

Hi there, we have 2-3 hours to visit on Friday, 23rd December 2016. Is it worth buying the KUNSTHISTORISCHES MUSEUM entry only or the combined ticket which includes "Treasures of the Habsburgs"? Will we have time to see both?

You will have time to see them both and they are both well worth it. We had a private guide who was very good at moving us around the exhibits and very knowledgeable in art history. We saw them both in 3 hours.
We will be in Vienna for 2 days (Aug. 13/14) both weekend days but would like to visit the museum. What are the hours of operation on the weekend and weekdays? Entrance fee? Does it also include admission into the Neue Burg too? Any other museum admission inclusion? Thank you.
