  • €12 ticket, for a few exhibits with interest. Someone deserved it. It was small and very dark.. I was forced to wear the bag in front of the chest when I asked why, I did not get an answer..

  • Huge amount of emperor satin. But the center of the exhibition is the crowns of the holy Roman Empire and the Austrian Empire. Also a piece of Christ's cross, supposedly, the spear of Longinos, supposedly, and the horn of the unicorn, supposedly

  • Really interesting place. The museum is well made and there is plenty of things to see! This is a crucial place if you are interested in history and you come to Vienna. I highly recommend it to all history lovers!
  • Such an awe inspiring place! My great-grandparents were born in Austrian Poland, seeing the crown jewels, swords and armour sent shivers.
