I would advise you to stay focused on 3 or 4 things ( rooms ) that you totally must see ! It is huge and fantastic and a little confusing. It will pay to do a little homework prior to your visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed my time at this museum. Incredible works from the Impressionists and Modernists. Also very nice museum that was very clean and not too crowded.

We loved our visit to the museum!!! We spent about 3-4 hours there. We definitely could have spent 2-3 more hours. There’s so much to see! It’s hard to decide what our favorite section was. There’s something for everyone!!!

Its a great option for a cold or rainy day, good painters, nice place, you can spend 1 or 2 hours inside, but if you already visited MET you have to make another option, because its very simple if you compare.

With a short amount of time for our visit we spent most of it at the current Klimt/Schiele exhibit which was worth the price of admission.
