This was part of the Sisi tour. You have to take the subway to get here, since it is away from the other museums. It is worth an hour or less to get thorough this. It is set up with a lot of furniture laid out like a flea market, so there is a lot of detail and many variations... More

This museum is slightly out of the main museums area, on a side road off the Mariahilferstrasse. However, it is very easily reached by using the underground line, U3. The building is spacious, lighting is good, the exhibits have plenty of room and are well explained. And what exhibits! Despite the remarks of a handful of reviewers, the museum is... More

I enjoyed seeing the evolution of furniture from the 1800 till some modern Hoffmann Thonet and Loos. If you are interested in Design, this is definitely interesting. It has also a nice collection of Biedermeyer furniture. It is a nice space and does not feel like a dusty old building. I found it very interesting for somebody who is coming... More

We visited it only because it's already included in the Sissi ticket Absolutely not worth It's a museum with a melting pot of mobiles belonging to the Hofburg history. Definitely useless 30 minutes and we were out

Ok, so I am a history buff and I love old homes, castles, mansions, furniture. This place was amazing. They have in one spot all the unused furniture from the Hapsburgs, and their palaces. You could walk from exhibit to exhibit, for example one area had about 20 clocks, another, 20 writing desks...all from the 1700s and forward. But, most... More

Only drop by if you have the time and bought the Sisi ticket and a transport day pass, otherwise, may want to consider visiting other places.

This collection of furniture that the Hapsburgs used to furnish their various palaces when they were in residence there is now a museum. (Palaces were only furnished when royalty was present and the furniture was kept in this depot. Some rooms are furnished as they had been for various kings and queens, other rooms have large collections of single types... More

I went there alone; my wife preferred to do some shopping instead at the time, and she refused to come with me. The main reason I went there is because I bought the Sisi ticked and it was included. (I did not realize at first that it was not in the Hofburg palace, but somewhere else). As usual my wife... More

We live in Vienna and have seen most of the major sights several times over so it was a delight for me to visit the Hofmobiliendepot the other day with a visiting friend who wanted to see it. I thought it was a fascinating collection of all the extra Habsburg "stuff" - really hits home how massive the empire was,... More

If you buy a “Sisi ticket” it gives admission to Hofburg Palace, to Schonbrunn Palace and to this place, the Imperial Furniture Collection Museum. We’d been to Hofburg and to Schonbrunn and they were both bursting at the seams. We came here and we were on our own a lot of the time with hardly anyone else visiting the place.... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
