Landeszeughaus, Graz
(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Landeszeughaus a centerpiece of your Graz vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Graz trip generator.

  • World's largest collection of historical weapons and armor. Impressive the large number of exhibits, all in excellent condition. Very informative tour (1 hour).

  • No words to describe. Just some things in order to help other travellers. First of all DONT MISS IT. Then consider to buy the 24 card (the price is 13€ and the museum is 9) Follow the guided tour (i d...  more »
  • As a historically interested layman, this Armory was a treasure trove. Historical weapons, armor, accessories in its original condition! This includes good descriptions via "Audio guide", all very good prepared. This is also my only criticism of the exhibition, that everything is only ALMOST original. You can leave quietly really original a small portion of one floor 100%. But - this exhibition is wonderfully made and in this form unique in the world.

  • Must-do for every tourist in Graz. Thousands of medieval weapons and armoury. Perfekt for the kids. Boys love them.
  • Even for citizens always good to visit . COOL thing is that you can get an audio guide with a lil display and the information/explaining you get is really good .
  • 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.
  • 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.
