Sisi Museum, Vienna

3.9
#9 of 86 in Museums in Vienna
Specialty Museum Museum
At Sisi Museum find out how the once light-hearted young princess Sisi became an unapproachable and melancholic Austrian empress. Renowned set designer Rolf Langenfass created the exhibit, inspired by Empress Elisabeth's poetry. More than 300 personal items bring visitors closer to this misunderstood empress. See Sisi's parasols, boxes, gloves, beauty recipes, her death mask, and the actual sharpened needle file used in her assassination. Pick up a free audiobook and learn details about Sisi's life: how she was the first in the palace to have a "modern" bathroom and how she loved ice cream.

  • For lovers of history, biography, dresses, objects of times, etc., you will be filled! For others, this "passage" gives you the right time on this sovereign who has done so much dream besides tourists and even the Austrians. A little tired of having to go through a shop souvenir at each change of major pieces.

  • The size of this palace complex is overwhelming. Described as a city within a city it surely is. Opulence on an obscene scale inside - the extensive table wear - china, cutlery, silver, table linen - ...  more »
  • I think it's a must to visit this museum to learn more the story of the Empress Sissi. His routine, foibles, personal objects, Chambers, among other interesting things about this woman who was so important in your time and even today provokes curiosity in everyone! However I was a little frustrated to learn that most of the dresses and jewels are replicas! Another detail: no photos inside the Museum.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
