Belvedere

No trip to Vienna is complete without seeing some of Gustav Klimt’s artwork. The kids were excited to show Christiana the paintings at the Belvedere and tell her about Klimt. It is a beautiful museum and we really enjoyed it on this rainy day. The building itself is very beautiful. I love the paintings on…

Albertina

A friend of mine is moving soon and she has not been to all the art museums yet, so we joined her for a short trip to the Albertina this week. Elora and Oliver enjoyed exploring the roof while waiting for our friend to join us. I love the outside of the Albertina building. We…

Marion at the Art Museum

We were supposed to go swimming with a friend today, but James has a double ear infection and the older two kids are pretty tired from fighting off colds. I didn’t want Marion to be disappointed, so she got to pick which museum to spend the afternoon at, just her and Mommy. Marion could not…

ZOOM Studio – Colors Everywhere!

We went to the ZOOM Museum and checked out the new studio exhibit – Colors, Colors, Everywhere! The Studio is my favorite section in the ZOOM Museum. There is always lots of mess to be made and it is so amazing to see what the kids create. This time it was all about colors. They…

Kunsthistorische Museum

We were out with Chris today and decided to head to the Kunsthistorische Museum. We haven’t been there in awhile and it was WAY too cold to play outside. Here is James saying, “I am cold. Take me off this bush so we can go inside!” Elora on the other hand thought it looked like…

Succession

We have the Niederösterreich Card which gives you free entrance to a lot of museums and activities around Austria. On Saturday we decided to go somewhere we have never visited before, so we headed over to Succession. It was a nice walk through the Naschmarkt to get there on the coldest day in Vienna I…

Michelangelo at the Votivkirche

There is an art exhibition in the Votivkirche cathedral in Vienna that shows replicas of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel paintings. I was really interested to see it, so I packed up the kids and we headed to the cathedral. To be clear, an art exhibition in a cathedral where one is expected to be silent, with…

Kunsthistorische Museum with Friends

Today the kids had a great time showing some friends around the Kunsthistorische Museum (Art History Museum) in Vienna. We have always come by ourselves and it was so fun (and sometimes funny) to watch how the kids decided to navigate the museum while trying to show off each of their favorite pieces of art….

Art Gallery

There is an art gallery a couple towns over called The Bingham Art Gallery which I frequently drive past and have wanted to take the kids to. Finally when my mom was visiting just after James was born, I decided to take Elora and Marion over to the gallery while Oliver was at school, figuring on…

Painting is Fun for Everyone!

We got out the trash bags and paint a couple weeks ago and went outside to make some masterpieces. The kids love to paint and haven’t gotten to paint much since we got back to Utah. I guess I like my table here better than the one in Vienna because I feel hesitant to let…
