Love modern art? Then you should visit the Leopold Museum!
The Leopold Museum (located in the MuseumsQuartier) houses important collections of Austrian art, focusing on the second half of the nineteenth century. The collection was started by the ophthalmologists Rudolf and Elisabeth Leopold in the 1950s, due to their love for art the world’s most comprehensive Egon Schiele collection was established with more than 200 pieces. Today you can enjoy the museum’s impressive collection which includes pieces by Gustav Klimt, Richard Gerstl, Oskar Kokoschka and Alfred Kubin – as well as Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, August von Pettenkofen, Emil Jakob Schindler, and Anton Romako.
