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.

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.

I've been to museums with armoury displays before and I've loved them, however, I found that I got bored quickly in this one. Most of the weapons are exactly the same; they are racks and racks of what seems like hundreds of exactly the same thing. The armoury is spread out on four floors and it seems quite large, but...

This is, and has been, the main regional armoury. Staff are very good about explaining much of the background and indeed are delighted to have an interest visitor. Museums are not packed in Graz and one curator said "We are the underdogs in Austria"

Interesting museum, housing 4 floors of steel armour and weapons. I went through with the audio guide, and also listened to all the extra explanations for certain exhibits and the whole tour took less than 1 hour. So you wouldn’t really need to block out an entire afternoon or morning just for this visit. I recommend getting the 24hour Graz... More

This place was amazing! There are 4 floors of weaponry. Not just little displays, but beautifully organized, entire floors of weapons. There are over 32,000 pieces to see. There are enough weapons there to outfit an army of several thousand people. It doesn't take a long time to go thru, but is worth it. The guides on each floor are... More

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.
