In a palatial building, Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien exhibits the Habsburgs' extensive art collection, which was amassed over centuries. Designed by architect Gottfried Semper, the museum is mirrored by an identical building on the opposite side of the Ringstrasse, which houses the Naturhistorisches Museum. Discover works by artists like Vermeer and Rembrandt, as well as a large collection by Pieter Brueghel the Elder. An audio guide offers an in-depth exploration of close to 600 works in the museum, including commentary on the building itself. In addition to the masterpieces on display, the museum includes a reference library of more than 256,000 manuscripts, maps, and historical prints relating to art and cultural history.

Also during the week there are many visitors here. The special exhibition gives a nice overview of the creative power of these two artists. But other painters can also be seen.
Great museum. Try not to get overwhelmed. Just stroll through the galleries and so off of something inevitably catches your eye... Then have a close look and move on. Otherwise this could take a week to look around properly. The cafe is also an amazing space and worth a stop off.
This place is magnificent. Here you can see everything started from old Egypt to Italian art, like #Caravaggio, Titian and others. here is perfect artworks like Bruegel, Bosch, Rubens and more. There is very beautiful roof painting when you go from central entrance from 1st to second floor, this painting is perfection, no words can describe it. If you are in Vienna you must see this Museum this is just perfect. 👌🏼👌🏼😊
