Great art museum in a beautiful building with a wonderful opportunity to see the Klimt murals up close. Highly recommend getting the audio guide to the art highlights and also recommend a coffee break or lunch in their cafe.

The beauty of the interior will take your breath way. The art collection is world class. You could easily spend one whole day here. We especially enjoyed the Rueben collection.

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.
