You don't realize how much they have until you get inside. OMG - what a collection! My son is a WW2 buff and he loved the place. I don't know much and I loved it too. They have everything. I can't explain it - just go. And then, when you leave - go eat at the Arsenalstuben - right outside... More

My 32 year old son is a life long history "nut" and has dragged me through Europe several times following the Habsburgs. He did this museum by himself, spending most of a day (and half of that in the museum's gift shop!) He took LOTS of iPhotos inside, including that of assassinated Franz Ferdinand's bloody uniform! I am certain that... More

Ok i;m not a military girl but my brother in law was. But wow, this really has everything you want and is full of interesting things. The building itself is magnificent and as soon as you walk in you are greeted by a hall full of sculptures of military men! Typical Vienna style in the way the building is magnificent,... More

Visit here the same day as Belvedere Palace as they are a 10 minute walk apart and both about 15 minutes from the U Bahn subway.Admission is only 6 Euros and an extra 2 for taking as many pics as you like.You can leave jackets and bags etc.free of charge.The building itself is jaw dropping and upstairs is full of...

A huge museum, you'll need at least 3-4 hours just to look at the exhibits covered by the audio guide. The arsenal building in which the museum is housed is also very impressive. Particularly poignant are the exhibits (including the open topped car) that relate to the assassination in Sarajevo in 1914.

We very much enjoyed the military museum. The highlight is the car that Archduke Ferdinand and his wife were in when they were assassinated in Sarajevo.....but the museum has lots more that describes the military history of Austria....we spent about 3 hours there.......

One of the very few Vienna attractions not easily accessible from the U-Bahn, it is well worth the trip (and approached through the park, a nice walk from the subway)if you are a World War I buff. I found the exhibit or earlier wars to be rather stiff and conventional, but the WW1 stuff came alive -- starting with the... More

A very comprehensive overview of Austrian military history in a beautiful set of old buildings. I focused on the WWI and II exhibits as that's my main interest, and was really interested in the exhibits showing the impacts of bombs and also, of course, the famous car. My only complaints are that they charge you extra to take photos and... More

It took us a while to figure out how to get to this our of the way museum (very end of D tram), and construction made it bit longer walk to get there. Exhibits are wide ranging and thorough, from historical narratives and videos, to uniforms, personal items of soldiers, to weapons and vehicles. Kids will love it as well.
