If you want to get the real imperial atmosphere, drop the loosy Belvedere (just visit the outside and the gardens) and come to this museum. Gorgeus forniture from Sissi's life (or better said Sisi's, beautiful and unhappy princess). Nice idea connecting the forniture to the famous Sissi's movie. Very friendly staff, too.

My wife and I visited this museum only because it was included in the Sissi ticket, but we were glad we did. The exhibits are well done and I can imagine anyone interested in woodworking would enjoy this museum.

I spent 40 mins. to visit it, but still it is a waste of time. Most of the people visit it because they bought Sisi ticket, which includes Schoenbrunn palace, Hofburg Palace and Imperial Furniture Collection. You can see many copies in Imperial Furniture Collection but real ones in the other two Palaces in Sisi ticket. In Vienna, everywhere is... More

My wife is a furniture conservator at a major European museum, and at this point I am a bit inured by the number of collections I've seen. So I was delightfully surprise by how much I enjoyed this museum. The museum does a great job of providing interesting cultural and historical context for the collection, all in excellent English. The... More

I came to Vienna in part to experience art and music, and appreciate beauty in many small ways that the arc of my life had heretofore not comprehended. So I was prepared to visit art museums and churches and palaces, but was not expecting to spend time at a furniture collection. (Boring!) I only visited here because it was part... More

An extensive but manageable collection of royal furnishings from 1600 onwards. We spent a morning here. Most pieces are displayed in room settings. There are enough signs in English. They include a modest amount of history regarding the Hapsburg family.

This collection gives a very clear and fascinating background to Vienna's history over many centuries, right up to recent times. Seeing the forest of hat stands and the Imperial travel-cot for example along with the individual rooms decorated and furnished with original pieces gave a real glimpse into the life which the Imperial family led. We enjoyed the early and... More

We visited since the museum was included in the Sisi ticket. Some parts of the exhibits were well described and reorganised similarly to the original rooms. An audio guide or further descriptions of the exhibits would have made the museum more interesting. The modern exhibition upstairs is a waste of space in my opinion. More palace rooms could be exhibited... More

I LOVE this place. On my first visit, years ago, I found out the real story of the court residences and of their furniture: fascinating! Interesting illustration of the evolution of the idea of "home". Illumination examples of pieces from different époques, including Thonet, Biedermeier, Loos and Art Nouveau. I really regret the LACK of audio-guides: if you want to... More

This collection is the most fascinating ,interesting and my favourite of all the attractions in Vienna. I had highlighted the place before my trip and bought the Sisi ticket which included entry to the collection. It was easy to find via the underground and the variety of furniture, soft furnishings and accessories were astounding. The logistics of furnishing the palaces... More
