I visit Neue Galerie when I can for I like the former mansion it is housed in. The pictures are well showcased in the high-ceilinged and historical rooms of the house. The pictures themselves are an acquired taste - Expressionist German and Austrian art from the early 20th century - but I do like seeing various types of modern art... More

What a great small museum. There are a number of Klimp paintings with the Woman in Gold being the highlight!

This is a smaller, boutique museum, but it really was one of my favorites I have seen. There was a line outside of about 20 people when we walked up, so they were only allowing a few people in at a time. However, it seemed we only waited for about 10 minutes, so it didn't take long for us to... More

We visited this museum near the end of the special Klimt Exhibit - which, of course, was stunning. AND I'd come back again to see what they have next. It's not a large museum so don't be surprised if there's a line outside to get in - the lobby is about the size of a small living room. But they... More

I was lucky enough to go to Vienna for NYE and then on to New York for my birthday this year, so I got to see Klimt's masterpieces in both cities. The Woman in Gold as well as the Adele Bloch-Bauer II painting, related drawings and Klimt vintage photographs are here. Located on 86th Street and Fifth Avenue, its easy... More

Lot's of fabulous Klimt art. The most enjoyable part of the visit was the cafe. You don't need to pay to go in the cafe. The best coffee and the best pastries.

Came here specifically to see the Golden Lady bc we saw the movie about this painting. The third floor of this museum was closed so they only had the Gustav collection available for viewing so there was no charge to enter. Lucky us. Still made a donation though. The museum is in an old building that used to be owned... More

Yes as with many visitors the "Woman In Gold" was our main reason for visiting. We arrived about 40 minutes before the main gallery opened to have breakfast in the café, which was very good in it's own right, and were the first in line when the public was let in to view the art. The admission was free on... More

I should have heeded reviews I saw on this site and others saying to skip this gallery. First of all, the staff are incredibly haughty and rude. The ticket taker tried to NOT give change back from my $50 and that was just for one person. Then the third floor was closed and the first floor houses nothing but a... More

Klimt's Woman in Gold is a must see! They also have smaller exhibits housed in an intimate setting. It is rather crowded in the summertime. Also a note, there is a security check point at the entrance where they require you to throw out any water you have.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
