Fabulous art collection in a stunning building. Spent most of the day here and only saw one floor...maybe a 3 day city break for Vienna isn’t going to be enough (always leave something to come back for). Don’t miss.....

As a Breugel/Flemish painting lover, this is a must-see museum! I recommend buying tickets ahead of time so that you don't have to wait in line. The museum was fairly crowded (July), but that didn't take away from the artwork.

Anyone who likes Bruegel will love this museum. Also, there are paintings by Zoran Music (with little roofs over the s and the c) that are really powerful.

We purchased the audio guide. I found it very helpful since you can learn specifically about art in which you are interested. Guided tours may bypass items that interest you.
