The permanent collection at the Kunsthistorischesmuseum (Museum of Fine Arts) is one of the world’s most illustrious, with important works by Raphael, Canaletto, Bosch, Rubens, Vermeer and Velázquez. Like New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the ground floor here, too, emphasizes Egyptian as well as Greek and Roman antiquities collections. Cupola Hall—an ornate extravaganza composed of black-and-white marble columns, mosaics, stucco, gold leaf and a 196-foot dome—is a work of art in its own right. Don't miss the Klimt portraits of women above the main stairwell—the artist completed them when he was lesser-known and they remain some of his most beautiful works.
