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.

Yhe tour is boring and tells only about the wappons but nothing about the history and why they are there for which wars they been and so on. Nothing about the history... More

We found info on this Armoury museum online and thought it sounded really interesting, so we decided to check it out. They say it's the world's largest historic armoury with 32,000 pieces of armor, weaponry, etc. It is still housed in the original building, which was built in the 1600's. During WWII, all the pieces were moved and stored in... More

As a clay shooting fan this was a must visit on our agenda. The collection is MASSIVE... All brand new, unused weapons and armour ready to equip an army of 6000 men! Everything is laid out neatly in dedicated storage, with separate sections for each type if weapon, on several stories, ready for action. We joined a guided tour at... More

Beside being a beautiful well maintained Renaissance building, it is unique in the amount of weapons from the Middle Ages onwards. Never ever saw such a huge amount and so well preserved. A unique collection in the world and an absolute must when visiting Graz. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Really good museum, however you will need the audioguide as there are no boards explaining about the different areas. The audioguide pieces are short but very informative for each area. Well worth seeing if you are in Graz.

We Visited the armoury in August 2015 and were quite taken aback by how large the collection/display is. We were also impressed by how helpful the caretakers were in explaining the exhibits. We spent just over an hour wandering through the four levels of the display - if you were pushed for time you could do it in 30 mins.... More

The collection is very impressive but we were a little bit disapointed since there's absolutely no explanation about them. A little legend in German/English could have made the visit more educational. I recommend to visit this museum if you already know something of Medieval history.

Located at the Old Town, the Styrian Armoury one of the better museums in Graz, particularly if you're into history. The four levels of the museum are literally filled with various weapons, including firearms, swords, sabres, polearms, artillery and armours (the full horse armour is awesome). There are hundreds of items of each kind, but the descriptions are scarce, so... More
