We spent a few hours here - the Rubens exhibit was outstanding. There's a ton to see including the very large coin collection (there might have been 5 people visiting it). The building is amazing as well.

This is an excellent imposing museum and one of the grand buildings of Vienna in the Maria Theresien Platz. Currently there is a busy popular Christmas market outside and a special Rubens exhibition on the inside.
