John I took loads of photos at the Leopold last summer with no problem! I think that form is only for if you want to publish your photos.
Thanks so much.
In some Viennese museums you are allowed (with no flash), in some not. In Leopold Museums is in principle allowed, without flash. For special exhibitions it could be forbidden.
In Belvedere is not allowed, MAK is allowed (you can use pictures only for personal purposes).
The best way to know if you need a permit is to get in contact with the museums.
Best regards, Romana
Thanks so much, Romana. Sad news re the Belvedere. I'll check with the museums before hauling out my camera.
i always ask for permission wherever i go. one museum said no, but promoted me to the status of press, and i was able to video and photo to my hearts content. always ask !
Don't ask, don't get. :)
