The galleries can be crowded at peak times, so book tickets in advance or join a museum tour for an in-depth look into the history and significance of the museum’s highlights. You can also take in the museum on a hop-on-hop-off bus tour, with the Flexi Pass, or with the MuseumsQuartier Duo ticket.

The Leopold Museum Collections

The permanent exhibitions displayed around the vast atrium and open galleries include masterly silverware and ceramic decorative arts from the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops) of 1903–32; stylish Art Nouveau furniture designed by Koloman Moser; and some rather brutal portraits by Expressionist Oskar Kokoschka. The standout pieces in the collections are the portraits swathed in gilt and landscapes by Gustav Klimt—including his peerless Death and Life. Other highlights include the world’s most important collection of portraits and nudes by the enfant terrible of Austrian Expressionism—Egon Schiele—who was mentored by Rudolf Leopold throughout his career.
