During World War II the museum was damaged, and after the war it was extensively renovated for a expensive price. The renovation, which took 10 years, cost no less than $117 million, a lot of money at that time. Finally it was constructed into a huge museum complex, one of the largest in the world.
The facade of the museum is decorated in neo-classical style. The building was designed by the renowned architect Klaus Albrecht and the entrance was designed by the great architect Hans Hollein.
The museum has four floors, including three galleries that show millions of cultural and artistic objects. Here you will find works by the greatest artists in the history of art, including Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Pablo Picasso and others. But apart from them there are over 1.5 million carvings, more than a million paintings and more than 65,000 drawings and paintings. Go ahead and see them all!
