Bank Austria Kunstforum, Vienna

Bank Austria regularly has some of the best art exhibits on display to be found anywhere in the city of Vienna. Over 300,000 visitors come each year to see them, even though it is not a public institution per say. They bring in exhibits from across the world.

Their private collection has over 10,000 pieces now. You can find the works of such great artists as van Gogh or Lichtenstein. They very frequently add new items to the count that are from more modern artists also. The biggest single portion of their collection, however, comes from the Viennese art nouveau movement. They also house one of the bigger avant-garde contemporary art collections in the whole city. It is definitely worth the visit.

The museum is the brain child of Heinz Conrad, who helped to organize the first display for the company. This was in the year 1980.
