  • The treasure has colored the history of Austria often exhibit. Recommended to those interested in the Habsburg monarchy.

  • Zasljepilo nas blještavilo, no ono što kroz to bogatstvo treba gledati je prirodno čudo krustalnih oblika. Umjetnost zlatara je velika; izraditi prekrasne predmete koji će trajati stoljećima i donosit...  more »
  • We saw this exhibition as part of our Vienna pass and were over awed at the treasures contained in the imperial Treasury. Well worth the visit.

  • 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.
