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

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
