  • Take a few hours of the Treasury, even a couple of hours is not enough and definitely take the audioguide in Russian

  • We would go back again as there is so much to see and read about. If you love history and beautiful things, this is the place. If was not very busy which was great as we were able to take our time at ...  more »
  • There are crowns, brooches, jackets and other garments that completely overflowing of precious stones, gold and pearls. Though it is extravagant, I cannot really digest the impressions. Often the works not as aesthetically placed but it was probably mostly show on an abundance. However, it is interesting to look at these objects which are made for several hundred years ago.

  • 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.
