Built in 1868-1871 by Heinrich Ferstel, the Museum of Applied Arts is the oldest and one of the best museums of its kind in Europe. Its permanent collections are displayed in a series of exhibition halls, each of which has its own unique style (Renaissance, baroque, oriental, art deco). The design and architecture room contains pieces by some of the 20th Century's greatest designers, while the Studiensammlung contains fascinating studies of different materials. Visitors will need a whole morning or afternoon to be able to take everything in properly and definitely shouldn't miss the museum cafe.
