As a photographer, this was the final museum stop during my Vienna trip. The exhibit was about polaroids, which is neither here nor there in my opinion. I do like the space, which includes a cafe and nice selection of books for purchase. I was...More

We visited while the had the World Press exhibit. It was moving. Given the extensive collection & display of cameras and related items, my guess, they only show amazing & worthwhile photography.

Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries,
arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde
shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with
cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make
for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and
art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at
Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a
perfect hangout on a warm summer evening.
