This Museum of Art History is situated opposite an almost identical building (The Natural History Museum) on either side of Maria Theresien Platz in the heart of the historic city. From afar one can gain an understanding of the palatial nature of this great building...More

We didn't have a lot of time so just saw highlights of this museum. It is like a palace with all the art and paintings and treasures. My favorite items were the automatons that were made for kings as entertainment when they hosted dinner. They...More

Every Thursday night, a wonderful fine dining dinner is held at the Art History museum. One needs to pay the usual museum entry fee as well as the price of the dinner. However, between courses, you are free to wander amongst the exhibitions.

When in Vienna, you should not miss this. Not only is the building and its surrounding area very beautiful and scenic, the art collection on exhibit is among the finest in Europe. Admittedly a lot of the paintings and exhibits originate in other countries (e.g....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.
