Vienna-ORF Long Night of Museums-part I

Last weekend hubby and I were in Vienna. There was "ORF Long Night of Museums" organized for 15th time. That was great opportunity to visit few museums for the price of one. 
Our first introduction with Vienna was by bus tour around Ringstra├če.
                          Wiener Staatsoper
                               Parlament
                     Rathaus
After we had settled in the hotel, at 6 pm the long night of museums began.
In front of many museums were big queues, so we went only to those (biggest) that didn't take time to enter.We had 5 hours for this adventure. Not nearly enough for complete tour, but now we have vision what to look for next time.
Firs on our list was: Kunsthistorisches Museum-one of the world's most important museums.
                        Collection of Arms and Armour-at NeueBurg
Second on our list was: Naturhistorische Museum- “one of the largest, oldest, and most noteworthy natural history museums in the world”

Then we went to - Schmetterling haus 
The Butterfly House is situated in beautiful Art Noveau palm houses near Hofburg Royal Palace. There are about 400 free flying butterflies. Interesting and unusual experience.
 At the end: beautiful baroque State Hall of the Austrian National Library
After long night stampede through museums we barely had strength for one more sleepy view to the Rathaus.
