If you are really into history, this is the place for you! Beautiful clothes, crowns, imperial socks, you name it! It will take you only about one hour to see all of this and it worth every minute!

This is am excellent didplay of jeweled crown that were amassed by the Austrian royalty. They have so many unusual prices on display. The crowns are unbelievably beautiful. There is also an assortment of other jewlery, robes, a scepter, the world's largest emerald... which is over 2000 carats and other gold items. It amazed me that there were so few... More

Next to the British Crown Jewels this is the best Treasury I have seen in all of Europe. Many crowns and Jewels are on display and unlike in the Tower of London where you have to stand on a conveyor belt you can take your time to look at everything. No photos though.

Visit Vienna every year, but always seemed to be out of sync with this museum - whenever had the time to spare, it was seemingly closed (it is in fact only closed on Tuesdays, but guess that's when we've always been available in the past!). Anyway, made a point to visit it this time around and wasn't disappointed in the... More

This is one of the best displays of Crown Treasuries. You will walk through a line up of rooms filled up with Austrian Imperial jewels and clothes. Ticket is a bit pricey, but worth it. Some of the items go back to 10th century.

This treasury is an extensive collection of jewels and regalia from the Hofburg's collection. It borders on excessive for a day's visit. However, if you spend time on the displays that interest you with the audio guide and skip the narratives on the ones that do not and ably pause to take in their beauty, this treasury can be tackled...

I've been to a few of these and this one is the best displayed treasury museum. Even the clothes which typically bore me where displayed Ina. Very eye catching manner than made me stop and read the signs about them. Expensive ticket but very worth it. The royal family was doing it right!!

We visited the treasury in October. There was a crowd of people outside but they turned out to be a tour group waiting for their guide so we were able to walk right in. The gift shop was closed for inventory so no shopping when we were there. Lots of interesting exhibits. We tried to buy a combination ticket for... More

The imperial treasury of Vienna is a must see. The collection is beond imagination. The audioguide gives you plenty of information. The only irritation are large guided tours with a loude voiced tour guide.
