The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.

    A delightful and manageable day at the museum
    I love small museums because one can visit without being overwhelmed. This Galerie is in a converted mansion, so one can see everything and still understand what one is viewing. It was lovely seeing the Klimt paintings in real life, rather than a poster or postcard. The Beckman exhibit was well curated and designed. Even the spiral staircase is wonderful! However, the restaurant, though highly regarded was, IMHO, a bit overrated.

    Marvelous Klimt collection
    The Klimt and Kokoschka paintings on view are the best collections of work by those artists I've ever seen. Masterpieces by Klimt are worth the visit... combined with those works are a very interesting group of Vienna Secession artists and designers. Missed the German art collection because the floor was closed in preparation for an exhibit. Will have to return to be impressed even more!

    Visit The Neue Gallerie in NYC
    This gem of a small museum located on Museum Mile, housed in a gorgeous Beaux-Arts mansion in NYC is well worth the visit. The famous Klimt painting of Adele Bloch- Bauer nicknamed The Woman in Gold lives here along with masterpieces and objects d’art from Germany and Austria. There are two restaurants here also. No photos are allowed inside the gallery space but the building is as lively as the art inside.

    A fabulous museum of Viennese and German art by dine well known artists highlighting Gustavo Klimpt. And the period .
    Gorgeous furnishings, outstanding art and jewelry in a well organized and logical progression of art. Elevator snd disability enabled snd having a lovely book store and restaurant make it a great outing. Members enjoy longer viewing rights and it is convenient to all public transportation.

    Excellent Klimt Exhibit
    We visited on Sunday for the Klimt Exhibit without a reservation and had a very pleasant experience. We waited in a relatively short line outside. Many visitors were entering the relatively small foyer: those with museum reservations, walk-ins like us and others there to dine at the Cafe. There were security people and other staff to guide the process smoothly. Unlike some of the recent reviewers, everyone we encountered was polite and helpful. We went thru a metal detector and had our bags checked but appreciated the security in this day and age. If you are a fan of Gustav Klimt and unable to go to Vienna, highly recommend the Klimt Exhibit. It was well-organized and fascinating. A security employee did ask that visitors who were finished viewing the art move on to make room for others who were waiting but she was not rude about it; there were people "just hanging out" chatting or looking at their cell phones. We spent about an hour between the Klimt Exhibit on the 3rd floor and the exhibits on the 2nd floor. Just to be able to spend some time with the golden portrait of Adele, with her incredible story, is worth the price of admission to me. But of course, art and the museum experience are subjective so if you are measuring by number of works or square foot per dollar, the Neue may not be for you.

Set in an Historic Home with Architecture to match the period this whole experince was fantastic. Each floor delivered a really good history and showing of the Artist without big queues and cosy intimate spaces. Follow with the cafe takes you back in time or go for a Snitzel and coffee downstairs.WE followed it with a walk through central Park.

This is an excellent museum with a specific focus. The place usually has interesting shows to complement its outstanding, if small, collection. The Kirchner show in fall and winter 19-20 is a good example. It took monumental effort to bring works from many different museums and private collections. Particularly noteworthy was its getting the great Kirchner on loan from Oberlin College's Allen museum. Intelligent commentary. Housed in an elegant beaux arts mansion, with an appealing recreation of a Viennese coffee house.

It is a lovely place to go to enjoy the art in a calm, more intimate setting. Very beautiful structure, too. The restaurants inside looked and smelled enticing but we did not try.
I strongly advise people to visit. Our incentive was to see the painting, "Woman in Gold"
We were delighted with the experience of being there. I would return.

The museum specializes in German and Austrian art. The popular artwork is the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer painted by Klimt, the subject of the movie "The Woman in Gold". The museum requires vaccination and masks and patrons are advised up front. However, you can't carry your coat over your arm while in the museum. I don't mind using a coat check, but I did not know there was a coat check or that I could not carry my coat and I felt reprimanded by security for trying to take my coat off. I also felt the lighting was ill arranged and caused lots of reflection on the paintings making them difficult to view. There is little written information about the works when you are viewing them. Perhaps there was more information, but I missed it.

A classically beautiful mansion/townhouse that is the home to a very small, but beautifully curated, collection of important Austrian and German art. Among the masterpieces, Gustav Klimt’s most celebrated work may be viewed in this lovely setting. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. This is the perfect destination for a quiet, utterly pleasing and thought provoking afternoon in the center of the museum universe. I truly adore this museum and the historical relevance it embodies.

We had planned to visit this art museum, but the power-hungry rope holder of a security guard wouldn’t let us in because we had bottled water in our packs. We have been to countless art museums and have never—I repeat never—been refused entry because we had bottled water. It was a warm day and I have to think most patrons were carrying around some form of water. If you are afraid someone may spill the water, allow patrons to check it. Or for gosh sakes just put out a box where people can drop it off and retrieve it after. Or even better, just ask patrons not to open the bottles. In any event, we weren’t about to throw away our newly purchased $5 bottles of water, so we skipped the museum.

A small but worthy collection of German art housed in a landmark building and the place to go if you want to see Klimt’s Woman in Gold and some of his other masterpieces. No photography is allowed in Neue Gallery. It’s cafe and the gift shop are worth a visit,too.

I visited the Neue Galerie in March 2022. The museum had an interesting collection of Austrian and German art. I had to show my proof of vaccination to enter and also I had to buy a timed-entry ticket online in advance. The most important paintings were by Gustav Klimt including the "Woman in Gold", There were also some paintings by Kandinsky. The museum had a replica of the "Woman in Gold" in the basement near the restrooms. Photos of the replica are permitted but not of the original Klimt paintings on the second floor. I think the museum was worthwhile. My visit took about one hour.

We were there last week for New Year's Eve. We hadn't been to NY in years. It's worth a visit. If you haven't seen the true story of the Woman in Gold movie with Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds, then watch it and go see the Adele Bloch Bauer painting done by Gustav Klimt who was an Austrian painter. There are a couple other of his paintings there and WWI German exhibit currently. I believe the exhibits change occasionally. It's a small museum, but worth the visit. Plan to eat at the restaurant. We had eaten before we got there and I wish we hadn't. German food, Yum. We've been to the Belvedere in Austria where most of Klimt's work is. The Woman in Gold is worth the visit alone, especially if you've seen the movie. in addition, the staff is friendly and accommodating. The lovely lady who answered in customer service adjusted our time due to a schedule conflict. THANK You so much for that, it made a huge different. Loved it ~
