Among the 21 departments and institutions of the Joanneum Universal Museum, founded as the Joanneum in 1811, the Armoury is in a class of its own. Attracting around 55,000 visitors annually, it is the Joanneum's most-visited institution without an exhibitions role. Moreover, as the largest historic armoury in the world, it is a living memorial to a chequered, conflict-ridden past, whose bogeymen and prejudices are still with us.

Between November to end of March admission to the armoury is only allowed with a guided tour (which is highly recommended) There is just a single tour in English per day (There isn't on Tuesday) which is at 13:00. Entrance fee + guide for an adult is only €11.50. I started off the tour alone and 30 minutes later 2... More

You cannot go to Graz without going to the Armory. It is very easy to find. It is located on Herrengasse right in the middle of the pedestrian area. The museum contains armor and weapons up to 500 years old. It is a must see.

There are 30,000+ pieces of armor, various weapons ,etc.on multiples floors. Nice if you are a military history buff, but a little boring otherwise.

It is the largest medieval armory in the world. It is still in original condition. So no flash allowed.

This museum is amazing in the amount of weaponry and armor on display. I strongly recommend the Audio Tour Guide. I prefer not to use a guided tour group because I like to go at my own pace. There are no descriptions or signs anywhere in the museum, so the Audio Guide was perfect for getting the full experience. Do... More

Very interesting armory museum. It is specifically weapons collection from the 15 and 16th century. Helmets, flintlocks, long guns, suits of armor, one even for a horse of which there are very few left, mortars, swords, pikes, and a sabers to name a few. We took the English tour that lasted about one hour and the info was interesting and... More

For me these was the best attraction in Graz (and I'm not a weapon fan!!) The Landeszeughaus in a big armory from 15-16 centuries, very well preserved and kept! It's like going back in time, the wooden floors, the low light, and all those equipments!!! You can take an audio guide (that I really recommend) that will make your visit... More

Amazing collection in 100% condition of armaments used in centuries past. An armoury: a place intact and just waiting for soldiers to come and grab their weapons and leave for the battlefield. From the heaviest broad swords and rapiers and spears to all forms of hand guns, bayonets, long guns, and on and on. Great.

Interesting museum but the staff on each floor seemed to follow us about the whole time we were looking round which was a bit off putting. I understand as you're not allowed to touch anything and we were the only ones in there at the time. Some beautiful weapons and armour but rather samey on all floors. As students we... More

The Landeszeughaus is a medieval armory. It's arranged like it would have been 600 years ago. It's not your typical museum with cases and descriptions. Instead, three are row upon row of actual weapons, armor, etc. Very well done and a most impressive collection -- highly recommended.
