Art History Museum
Built near the Imperial Palace to house the extensive collections of the imperial family.
With its vast array of eminent works and the largest Bruegel collection in the world, it is considered one of the most eminent museums in the world.
Numerous major art works of European art history, among them Raphael’s "Madonna in the Meadow," Vermeer’s "The Allegory of Painting," the Infanta paintings by Velazquez, masterworks by Rubens, Rembrandt, Dürer, Titian and Tintoretto are housed in the paintings gallery.
In the Collection of Sculpture and Decorative Arts, one finds rarities from the former art collections of the Habsburgs, and in the Egyptian and Near Eastern Collection there are many treasures of important ancient cultures.
Arts & Delights in the Cupola Hall of the museum can be combined at an Art Brunch or, in the evening, at an elegant buffet dinner
The architectural mirror image of the Museum of Fine Arts is the Museum of Natural History on the opposite side, which was also built according to designs by Gottfried Semper and Karl von Hasenauer.
