Very enjoyable experience. Worth going to see how it all started. Klimt's Beethoven Frieze in the basement was magnificent. Thank you for preserving and exhibiting it. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, walk down the street for 10 minutes along Naschmarkt to see Otto Wagner Majolica House.
Go for the Beethoven Frieze in the basement. There are other changing exhibitions but the Klimt is the draw. Architecture was strongly influenced as well by this building with its simple lines and human focused sized spaces. In general a young art focused crowd. Good shop with high quality turn of the century design and few books for children in several western languages ..French and English were out of stock but go online. The gold dome is iconic and being released if you want to contribute online!
Interesting museum that has some quirky temporary exhibitions. Discounted tickets for Erste bank card holders. Still, the place is small, and the permanent exhibition is more about the architecture and the history of the building and less the traditional type. You'll be done relatively fast here, so it's a nice short visit to a different kind of museum if spending an entire day in a larger one isn't your thing.
The building is beautiful and a truly iconic site of Viennese turn of the century architecture, by far one of my favourite things to show off to any visitors. The reason why this gets 4 stars is simply the 9.50€ entry fee which I personally find too high for the range of the exhibition. As many have pointed out, the Klimt frieze is absolutely amazing and a joy to see, the rest of the museum is dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions which may or may not strike your artistic fancy. Whether it's worth the money is up to you, just don't expect it to be full of Jugendstil art.
It's fine if you're a fan of contemporary conceptual art but unfortunately I wasn't impressed by the exhibits at all. I also expected to see more Klimt than the one frieze, though that admittedly was amazing.
