I was somewhat surprised at the negative reviews here, having just visited the museum yesterday. As a Historic Preservationist, I’m always interested in a city’s architectural history, and how they’ve chosen to approach historic buildings. I found this museum to be just enough-although there are...More

We stopped by for food only and immediately fell in love with the cafe and it’s evocative and beautifully tiled ceiling. We had different soups and all were delicious, warm and filling. Accompanied by fresh lemonade. The menu advises that customers are charged for tap...More

Almost all text in german, small displays, cluttered collection, in summer no arconditioner. Good projects and initiatives lost in a mess. The place needs an urgenteb revamp. I'm an engineer and designer married to an architect, if we didn't liked much, "normal" people will hate....More

There is a small permanent exhibition that takes you through a history of modern Viennese and Austrian architecture. I do not believe this is worth the price. The boards of photographs are poorly laid out and there is an inconsistency in somethings being translated into...More

My husband and I are not architects and have no particular interest in architecture. But, we do travel extensively and we like to understand the places we see. This architecture museum was perfect for explaining modern architecture in Austria in a way that was easy...More

I preface the review by saying I'm fairly interested in architecture and architectural history. Therefore, having looking forward to my visit I was not favorably impressed. The museum is very small: the permanent exhibition is basically one large room crammed with panels (there was no...More

Not be a devotee to Architecture I was hoping to see more than just pictures or expanded plans. Almost all of the static displays are either images or pages out of books penned by renowned Austrian Architects. There was a video display of contemporary Austrian...More

Once I'd got my head read how the displays worked (English on one side, German on the other of the big banners) this was by far the best museum I've been to. Loads of interesting information about the architecture of Vienna and Austria over time....More

Unlike user Bakalarios, I did put this museum first on my list, but that's only because I'm an architecture nut :)) When I visited there were three exhibits, most of which with comprehensive English translations: 1) Of perhaps interest more limited to professionals, was the...More

Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries,
arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde
shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with
cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make
for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and
art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at
Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a
perfect hangout on a warm summer evening.
