Military freaks a must

Awesome museum if you into military history, specially the austrian one - a little complicated to find it and a long walk from the streetcar but a good place to take pictures

If you are interested in World War 1, this museum is a must. The original uniform Franz Ferdinand wore when he was assassinated is on display, and well as the car he driven in. I did not have enough time to explore, and the outside exhibition was close during my visit - winter. Hope to return at some stage.

Lots of history there - and if you like it, that's a place for you. Also check some temporary exhibitions - those are great as well. Not at all difficult to find - just check beforehand the address and take a bus, not S-Bahn.

It is worth the walk and we got to see other attractions on our way to the museum. I recommend asking for the headphones so you can hear the explanation of the exhibits . I did not know they were available so I missed out on a little bit . The tank selection outside is pretty good. My wife brought... More

as a history buff, i am attracted to any military museum that may be lurking around. the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum is a must, i would even go so far as to say essential. it is well curated. i will temper this view by saying that the collection is definetly on the light side and i believe the WW's are a bit...

It's quite a walk from the nearest s-Bahn and when you get there, there are a number of buildings that look the same. It's in objekt 1 (other buildings are obj 2, 3 etc). Another tip is you start at the top of the building and work your way down which makes it chronological. Well worth a visit. It costs... More

By chance visited the museum on the 101st anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie. The automobile which still bears the bullet hole from the bullet which killed Sophie is worth the price of admission alone.

We went here as a bit of an after-thought but definitely didn't regret it. The first rooms are so grand and luxurious, reflecting the victories the Austrians had in early battle and wars. As you get to the first and second world wars, the rooms are much more sombre, not ornate at all. Seeing the actual car and clothes of... More

It's some way from the city center but worth the trip. It covers all of Austrian military history. I learned a lot of new things, especially about the inter-war period, which was a chaotic time for Austria. The museum is huge, so plan for at least 3-4 hours (i used 5). The high point is the car and uniform of... More
