Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig

In a sleek edifice constructed of dark stone, this museum—known to locals by the slightly odd acronym MUMOK—houses the national collection of 20th-century art. Spread over eight floors, the collection is largely a bequest of Peter Ludwig, a billionaire industrialist who collected modern art that was the cream of the crop. The top works here are of the American pop-art school, but all the trends of the last century, from Nouveau Réalisme to Viennese Actionism, vie for your attention. Names include René Magritte, Max Ernst, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Cy Twombly, and Nam June Paik, to name a few. Kids will make a beeline for Claes Oldenburg's walk-in sculpture in the shape of Mickey Mouse.
