  • Very interesting items here. Highly recommend if you have time, you can also go to the Hofburg Palace that is steps away. 
  • It is true that the treasure of the English Crown is richer but also this museum worth a visit, there are unique objects, studded with jewels, Emerald piu grande del mondo, clothing, swords, vases and trays carved gold (nearly all jewelry is of Italian manufacture, as well as the clothes). Set aside an hour and pay a visit you will not be disappointed.

  • In General, relatively good collection. There are otlichnejshie exhibits as the clothes and jewels and ornaments of the Church, but the Museum is not so great as expected. Passed all the halls particularly slowly for 20-30 minutes.

  • Great place to admire the splendour of past monarchies. The exbibition space is well designed for wanderIng from room to room. To make the most of your experience, make sure to first check out the timeline display to the right of the exhibition entrance as it will help you put everything into perspective time-wise.
  • Take the Audioguide!! These wondrous Artefacts really only come across in all their mystic curiosity together with the stories told about them. Imho one of the must see museums in Vienna.
  • Amazing jewels and other objects, revealing much about the history of the Hapsburg empire.
  • Bling like I've never seen it before. Worth seeing if you're in Vienna.
  • This museum houses the accumulated goodies of the Habsburg dynasty (which includes a ton of key artifacts from the Holy Roman Empire). There's the usual level of excess you would expect (the largest cut emerald in the world, about the size of a small watermelon), but there's real history, too: only a half-inch of glass separates you from the actual cloak Constantine wore when he was coronated the first Holy Roman Emperor. This place is a must if you're into history. They have audio tours available in multiple languages, and most of the information on the displays is printed in both German and English.
