This was my first time to visit armoury museum. So I can't give great comparison. The staff in down stairs was very friendly, even it was 30 minutes to closing time, she gave us apportunity to buy the ticket after she asked whether we are still in Graz for tomorrow or not. On first floor, I amazed, there was so... More

For me the arsenal was a huge collection of weapons, which were interesting to look at, but there was not really much information about what was on display, nor were there any demonstrations or anything. It was however interesting to look at the different weapons, however depressing to think that they were ever used. I would recommend a visit here,... More

Loved the feel of this place. It is cold and dark, just like it should be. Guided tours are required in winter.

We saw the armery with the english guide (required in winter) and it was very exciting to be in the center of the biggest military museum in the world full of armors and weapons. Very interesting!

The collection is very interesting, although possibly less "flashy" than other similar collections around Europe. The reason is that these are functional pieces,thought to be picked up by the local militia upon the approach of an invader, not the ceremonial, princely sets of armour that you may see in other European museums. At the same time, the fact that the... More

A vast amount of armor, weapons and artillery. I was super impressed the first couple of floors, but then I just wanted it to be over. After you have seen 100 suits of armor and a couple of hundred swords they all start to look alike (there are literally thousands of pieces). However, if you are a weapons/medieval armor fan,...

This was my first time to visit a museum of armor. I did "wow" when i reached the first floor. Worth paying EUR2.5 for the audio guided tour. However, i would expect to have more information displayed on the wall. All in all, if you have not been in any similar museum, it definitely worth visiting

The collection was impressive in scale, but everything started to look like everything else very rapidly. None of the items were labelled, so the visit might have been much better as part of a guided tour.

Im a girl but still enjoied as the size of this collectio is breath taking. On 4 floors there are tausends of pieces you can observe. From some of the floors there is the view on the courtyard of the Landeszeughaus which is as well very nice to see from this perspective. I would say it is a one time... More
