Wien Museum, Vienna
Tel: 43 1505 87470
Concierge.com's insider take:
The Vienna Museum—a 1950s post-Bauhaus block—may not be much to look at from the outside, but a sweeping renovation in 2000 turned the inside into an energetic, multidimensional portrait of the city and its people. It displays the battle armor of the Romans, details the city's struggle during World War II, and also hosts exhibits of the city's recent past, such as the Hungarian "escape to Vienna" in the 1950s.
Open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 am to 6 pm.
