Photo: Art History Museum Vienna Austria

The exquisite facade of the Museum of Art History in the Maria Theresa Square in Vienna, Austria in Europe.

In Vienna, Austria this building is known as Kunsthistorisches Museum but in the English translation it means the Museum of Art History. Inside, it houses some of the world's most exquisite fine arts and decorative arts. People lounge around the grassy landscape on warm sunny days, while others venture in and out through the wooden doors.

The building was first opened in 1891 with the facade of the museum being built out of sandstone. A rectangular shaped building which has a dome in the center that stands at a height of sixty metres with a bronze figure of Pallas Athene atop. The Art History Museum was once a sheltered area for the art collection belonging to the Hasburgs and today the museum's main collection consists of them.

Touring through the Art History Museum, one will be amazed at the beauty of the interior which is designed in marble, stucco ornamentations, gold leaf and a rare collection of paintings. ... continue below the picture...

When visiting the Art History Museum in Vienna, Austria, plan on being there for about two hours. Families are more than welcome, but most people find that the museum will quickly make small children antsy, taking away from the attraction for the adults which begin to hurry through.
