Landeszeughaus hosts the world's largest historical armory with over 30,000 pieces on display. Admire rows and rows of weapons, tools, and complete suits of armor used for both battles and parades. The armory was originally built to equip soldiers in defense against the Ottoman Empire in the 1600s, and Styria has carefully preserved the collection ever since. During World War II, authorities hid the equipment in remote castles and successfully avoided damage. Today, you can view the pieces in the original building. If you visit in wintertime, be sure to schedule a guided tour in advance.

  • The amount of armor and military items on displayed was the most we have ever seen! So amazed they were able to save so much! We had only 1 hour to go through the 4 floors - a bit rushed (we thought t...  read more »
  • Weapons were entered into the world of medieval and Dragon storm. On shelves and walls decorated with weapons and if you look on the back of the ceiling beams all up. It is a sight to see. The entrance is near the city center. I would go to mark information center 'i' mark. The price is 9 euro per person. Photography prohibited in carry-on luggage the ban, put in lockers. Speaking to the clerk near the stairs have a great travel bag and you keep.

  • The Zwinger in Dresden has a fabulous weapons collection full of bejeweled swords and daggers, but nobody would ever think of using one. But the Arsenal in Graz is THE REAL DEAL -- no jewels, no museu...  read more »
  • As a clay shooting fan this was a must visit on our agenda. The collection is MASSIVE... All brand new, unused weapons and armour ready to equip an army of 6000 men! Everything is laid out neatly in dedicated storage, with separate sections for each type if weapon, on several stories, ready for action. We joined a guided tour at 1pm which of course allowed us to appreciate the finer details in depth. This is one of the best sites in Graz and by far one of the best armoury displays worldwide... Located smack in the middle of the old town... Not to be missed
  • More than 30K guns, ammunition and shields stored in this 4-story wooden floor museum. The biggest arms collection in Europe, it's a real gem.
  • An excellent collection that gives you a real appreciation of the artistry underlying some old-school killing technology. So much more interesting than I was expecting.
  • This museum is a must-see for people interested in weaponry and medieval stuff, and also a great place to visit for everyone not fitting in that picture. The collection is huge and very, very clean. Simply impressive. Don't forget to bring a coat if it's cold outside, because there's no heating.
  • Usually a gun museum has one piece per model, here they show racks and stacks full of everything. Originally this was an armoury for an army that was never sent to fight. Every piece and every accessory an army would need in 1500s is here. Great place, but don't forget the small museum on the castle hill!
