  • You expect something out of date but the rooms are very modern in style with enough experience. For example, the cabinets with drawers that you can open. We found a nice collection and we have excellent entertained

  • 11 Euro entry fee (only option was the 'combo' ticket) no single tickets were offered. A great museum, however hard to know where you are supposed to go - confusing layout. Audio guide only available for a fee. Very little English descriptions - but that is expected. 2 hours here - it's was pretty good - also warm inside during Winter.
  • Great museum. I suggest you take the audio tour. Could be better if there were more information about the items.
  • totally worth to visit if you are an art passionate, European fine art and a strong tyrolean style of craft art was just so many inspirations.
  • It was amazing to walk through history this way. Get the audio tour and combo ticket to get into the church.
  • Very unique museum. I'm not a fan of museums but this was interesting on a rainy day. Free access on Austrias national day. Head phones are available in different languages, which helps. Not all bar codes work but a large portion does.
