Very interesting if you like this type of museum. Plenty of artifacts and apart from a few exhibits the descriptions are written in German and English. We went in the afternoon at 3-30, not expecting to need as much time as I have stated in the title. The inside of the building is extremely grand, especially the ceiling on the... More

The term 'War Museum' might initially put some people off, but this is in actual fact a history museum. The collection consists of two floors (and a garden with armored vehicles that is sadly - and inexplicably - closed for the winter). The top floor deals with the war history until the end of the 19th century. There are interesting... More

This museum is free but if you want the audio guide there's a small charge. I was hoping to use the guide but the staff weren't inclined to help and there was no signage. The new gallery is in both English & Germany but much of it is only in German.I'm not into military history (but my other half is)and... More

Happened to visit on the first Sunday of the month so my visit was free. But would have gladly paid. The exhibitions are in German but there is so much to see. Easily lose 3 or 4 hours.

This Military Museum is well-laid out. The exhibits are flanked with oil paintings of the battles and weapons of each era. Uniforms are also on display for each time period. They provide a folding stool for people who need to sit occasionally that oine may carry around the museum. There is a lovely garden area for lunch or one can... More

Nice and imposing building. The welcome hall is really breathtaking with the staturaries. On the upstairs for me was not so interesting but on the first floor I find very useful exhibitions. Only one negative experience: wintertime the outside vehicles covered.

It was indeed an interesting experience going inside this museum and experience the bravery of the army out there. There's a different feel all together to be here.

This was an incredibly beautiful building inside and out with very well displayed and interesting artefacts. There were explanation sheets to each room in several different languages.

There are many posters around Vienna advocating the only place war belongs is in a museum. Vienna does just that and does an incredible job. We saw the posters at the Naschmarkt as we were trying to figure out what to do next. We had six hours to kill before the opera. Now, being retired military this sounded like a... More
