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.

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

In Graz visiting family and they recommended this museum! Had our teenage boys with us. It took about an hour to go through. Headsets were available with different languages to tell about all of the armour. The headset recordings allowed you to go at your own pace. Lots of great detail in the recording. One of only seven full sets... More

If you ever want to see a collection of armour, this is the place to go! Four stories filled with armour, weapons and swords. Facinating! I could almost hear the noise and smell the battlefields...

Boyfriend wanted to go here so we took a tour and was quite a large museum actually, looks smaller from the outside. Not something I'm normally interested in, but if medieval things are something you are interested this is a well executed exhibition. Lots of pictures and gadgets and tools from the period of time as well as a large... More

One of my favorite museums in Europe, I cannot decide if it is because of the items, of the building or the excellent guides. I have been here twice, once as student and once in 2013, i plan on visiting it again. I think that every time you look at the items you see something new. They tell you that... More

Originally went here because we were at a bit of a loose end but really pleased we did. Had the audio guide which is definitely worth getting and really enjoyed seeing the massive collection.

24000 pieces set up in an interesting visible exhibition. Just looking at 24000 of pieces, weapons and full armors are really something extraordinary. A museum to remember.

I went with my family and we opted not to get the audio guides as we wanted to take pictures and what not. If you really have an interest in facts get the audio guide, there are no signs or anything giving descriptions of the armour pieces. My family and I had fun, mostly from making comments and admiring the... More

It is a very big museum, spreading out on 4 floors. There are hundreds of weapons, it was told it is the biggest armoury on the world. It is possible, but you have a lot of the items, so you can cover the whole museum in less than an hour.
