Wowed by this museum

This is not a huge museum, so it can be enjoyed greatly in not too much time. We were wowed by the jewels and the costumes, they were beautiful and well preserved

Hapsburgs children were married to grow the empire, including to Napoleon. The Cradle of the King of Rome was built for his son (but it rarely used) is beautiful – the eagle symbolizing that he was glory bond, and of course the big N for Napoleon. Also really cool was the “unicorn horn” which was considered to have magical healing... More

Beautiful crowns and capes belonging to former Emperors (including the crown of Charlemagne) in a museum that is not overwhelmingly large. And, unlike seeing the Crown Jewels in London, you can see these jewels at your own pace. Large collection of religious art and reliquaries. If you like gold and precious stones, and ermine, this is the place for you.... More

My mum and I visited today and at first I thought don't think this was worth it as I was expecting it to be mainly jewels but it includes robes, jewels and religious artefacts and we absolutely enjoyed it in fact I don't think anything else could compare with it. I would love to have known the value of the... More

The museum is very good located. The exhibition is interesting, however, it is very small. We found it not worth the money we paid for it.

Also called the Kaiserliche Schatzkammer, the Imperial Treasury is another example of an excellent Vienna museum and display. There is a lot on display here and with the crowds it can take a while to get through the line outside as well as getting close to see some of the exhibits. But it will be worth it. Even with the...

In regards to what Vienna has on offer this is a true gem (excuse the pun). It is surprisingly big and has a lot to see. They say it is the most important collection of royal regalia in the world and it would be hard for one to argue against that. Some pieces date back over a thousand years. The... More

This collection of the Imperial treasure was very impressive and well exhibited. With explanations in both English and German. The audio tour was interesting but I don't think it is necessary and it costs €4. The gift shop was quite good.

I visited the Treasury as a part of my combined ticket "Treasures of the Habsburgs", including also the Kunsthistorische Museum amd Neue Burg. I was not sure what to expect but I saw definitely exceeded all my expectations. It is mainly divided into two, let's say, parts - the Secular Treasury and the Ecclesiastical Treasury - either of which contains... More

Enjoyed our star and will definitely go again in in Vienna. We bought a combined ticket and had no trouble to visit the treasury and the other attractions. There are lots of crowns, imperial clothing and lots more that you can spend at least two hours.
