Landeszeughaus, Graz

(220+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Beautifully preserved inventory. I'd suggest paying the extra €2 for an audio guide, if you want to learn everything about the myriads of medieval weapons an armors on display at the Graz armory.
  • This vast collection of weapons and armour from 16th century was bought or donated by various European powers and nobles to Hapsburg empire for defence against Ottoman Turks. It was supposed to end up in Croatia (at that point part of Hapsburg Empire) but it never did. This is why exponents are almost in perfect condition. One of the best arms and armour museum I have ever been. Do not skip. It was worth every cent.
  • A bit expensive ticket, but if you are interested in medieval times, it's worth the visit.
  • Interesting museum. A lot of medieval armors and weapons that are well preserved.
  • Interesting historic museum, with a great collection of armour and weapons.
