    Although this is a small museum, it contains amazing treasures. Klimt's masterpiece, a portrait of Adele, or the woman in gold dominates the second floor. You can't take your eyes off it. There are several other Klimts and in sharp contrast the drawings of Egon Shiel. No pictures allowed in the main galleries.

    Despite the nice bit not amazing collection, security it’s hard and enforce with harshness a strict no photos policy (that is nonsense in our digital era). You can’t even check your phone that immediately a guard will shout you “no picture” It seems they did not understand that visitors are customers and customers pay their salaries. Overall a very little collection with just few pieces really worn the 20$ requested at the entrance. I wouldn’t go back.

    A beautiful Galerie celebrating the art of German and Austrian heritage through Klimt, Schiele and other artists. A hidden gem off 5th and Madison Avenues. A worthwhile experience.

    Undergoing refurbishment when we visited this time but still a pleasure. The klimpt paintings are a sumptuous feast for the eyes so somehow replete with gold and yet a tasteful icon of modern art. The kiss is at once tender and hedonistic. Sexual yet pure.

    Went with my daughter who spent two years in Germany and was very excited to go to the cafe for coffee and kuchen, wonderful cake that is subtley sweet unlike our oversweetened desserts. The gallery is in a wonderful old building with marble stairs. Small collection but a few absolutely stunning works in the current exhibit.

    One of the most beautiful museums in New York. Not only a fine permanent collection, art including Treasures from Austria, Germany and other parts of Europe, just a wonderful place to visit, right near other Uptown, east side museums. Also a really terrific restaurant with fine desserts and beverages. Very romantic to dine in their Restaurant as well.

    A small but quality museum that's less crowded than many more well known locations. Located in a small town house the location itself is unique. It's easy to miss with only a small street level sign. Security is a bit heavy and no photography is allowed but the collection has some great works by Klimt and a small section on furniture and design. The price is a little high for it's size considering you can also see many other huge museums for ~$25. It's worth a visit though if you are in the area.

    This is a real treasure. The current exhibit of 1930s Austrian and German impressionists is powerful and raises important issues about expression, intellectualism of society and the grip of intolerance masked by political extremism. Museum also has a permanent collection which features among others great work by Klee.

    An interesting collection of German and Austrian art, as well as some furnishings. The policy of no photography was both inexplicable and poorly administered. There are no signs to indicate this limitation, museum security simply wait for a patron to raise their camera or cell phone to position, then pounce on them to create a small embarrassment. And the reason for disallowing photos? Still trying to figure that one out.

    Definitely some exceptional pieces on show, and not a very big gallery, which is a good thing. You can go through the whole gallery and enjoy it within 2hours. The layout of the pieces is logical and follows the historical timeline of the Austrian, German pre to post ww2 across two floors, with a beautiful staircase. They lose a star because of what everyone says, the security is far too hostile. Why are they trained to be this way? More importantly, trained by whom? No photos of anything, even though every single one of those pieces can be found online with a simple Google search. What game is this? And who are you trying to hide the photos from? The gallery isn't even that busy for the old excuse of "it slows down traffic in the gallery". Many travelers want to take photos to remember their own individual experiences. And at $20 or whatever for a small gallery, guests do not need the disrespect of someone in a uniform waiving their hands and screaming at them "no photos". Evolve, as 99% of museums and galleries have evolved over the last 5 years.

    Too expensive, and the staff is not nice at all.

    Whenever I go, the line tends to be really long, but the museum is small and amazing plus it's only for adults and has some incredible things to see. And if they have a Klimt exhibit on, it's a must.

    This is the premiere showcase in NYC for German and Austrian artworks. The Galerie is owned by Ronald Lauder (of the cosmetics empire), and it is a treasure. There is a cafe and a bookstore as well.

    I was so excited and then the guard told me that the galerie would be open again till march 3rd 😭😭

    Most of the galleries occupy the upper floors. Photography is prohibited and bags must be checked in. There is a reproduction of "Lady in Gold" in the basement but it's just a poster.

    Great collection of paintings and sketches from Gustav Klimt in an special exhibition. Upstairs there's a collection of challenging art pieces. It's a building with lots of character & a cozy coffee!
