Comparing to the other museums in Vienna, such as the Imperial Treasure and the imperial collection at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, this one was a bit disappointing. The building itself is beautiful inside. If you are interested about lace, there is a room of different shapes...More

We were fortunate to be able to see the Otto Wagner exhibit! Their collection of Austrian Art Nouveau is world class. Great place for anyone interested in fashion, architecture or design!

Let’s start with the fact that this is an Applied Art/Design Museum, not a typical art museum. I’ve seen quite a few design museums, and this is right at the top. The overall collection is amazing-but I was especially wowed by the Vienna 1900 section....More

The current 100Best Posters is breathtaking while the 300 Years of Vienna Porcelain is amazing while the Klimt Magic Garden is a good place to chill as well as the outdoor garden that was totally pleasant.

One could spend a lot on museums in Vienna and they are, by and large and in my opinion, overpriced. MAK is, sadly, no exception. The building itself is worthy enough and the exhibition space(s) generous. I found it extremely annoying that a sign on...More

The MAK is on our list when we visit Vienna. This time around, the virtual Klimt experience was weird but fun. Working around a landscape in virtual reality is a new concept for an old man like me - at times it felt as if...More

The museum was worth the time spent and generated conversation. It is interesting for those of us who are not well versed in design, to learn about all the ways design impact our life and how that shapes our society, culture and the values associated...More

I can't remember exactly, but it was less than €10 each (concession for coffin-dodgers like me)... but worth the money - have a look at the website; I'm sure there'll be a list of entry fees featured..
