We visited this museum since we purchased the Kombiticket (which includes this museum, the Neue Burg and the Kunsthistorisches). We wouldn't have visited if it wasn't in the comined ticket. Would suggest taking the audio guide if you have the time. It gets rather boring if you don't have a guide/audioguide.

Not really worth going to . As with most museums in Vienna it was not cheap. Added cost was a audio tour. As all the signs saying what the items were were not in English. You need to leave all your bags in the clockroom to

An impressive array of treasures from jewellery to christening gowns. Pretty dark in there, as everyone has noted. You are permitted to take photos, with no flash. Is a bit of a hard place to find, but worthwhile going, especially if you buy a combo ticket to also see the Kunsthistoriches Museum and Neueburg.

Not cheap, but much more impressive than I had been expecting. I wish we had gotten the audio guide to learn more about the history and stories behind the various exhibits. Went with my husband and we both enjoyed it more than we thought we would.

when you put together the wealth of a secular and political empire and the wealth and power of the Holy Roman Empire and the treasury visit becomes truly spectacular. The crowns going as far back as the ninth century, the religious art, the reliquaries, the vestments and even the cradle for Napoleon's son all make this a must see stop.... More

The very expensive visit to the Imperial treasury is not very impressive if you have already seen other collections of this kind like the Russian or British. It has a vast collection of garments and religious artifacts, as well as jewels, showing indeed how powerful were the Austrian Habsburgs. But I think that the visit to the Kunsthistoriches Museum is... More

The first of several "royal family" attractions we visited this year in Vienna. An impressive collection of many kinds of jewlery, crowns from many centries of emperors and the royal families. Beautiful display and lighting. The only thing which spoiled our visit a little bit, was taking photos without flash, since it is forbidden. So if you don't have a... More
