Absolutely a must see museum

Definitely one of the best displays of jewellery and royal gowns. Do not leave town without visiting this museum.

I had no idea that the Imperial treasury was actually held in over 15 rooms. The Holy Lance, the Crown of the Holy Roman Empire, the cradle of Napoleon II, the imperial robes and heralds vestments, etc. This was only a small portion of the treasury. There are relics and ceramics. There are dresses and mantles. This was a phenomenal... More

as good as the Tower but v different, not as many jewels - but that is quite alright. i found it fascinating to see 800 year royal court attire o/ regalia. as objects of art and beauty they are stupendous in they own right. this collection has many different type of items on display - not all jewels.

I was fascinated by this exhibition. English history is so self cetrered that we do not appreciate how huge, prosperous and far reaching other countries were. Quite superb and interesting.

I was expecting this to be a small museum where you only could see some jewels but is was so much more. You could see not only crowns, jewels but also expensive inauguration robes, beds, religious objects,weapons and so much more. The audio tour provides so much information that you can stay there for at least an hour. In which... More

Really enjoyable, my friend and I really liked the museum. It had a lot of different types of historical pieces, including the crown jewels and many arrays from different areas in the HRE. Definitely worth a visit.

We went today with our friends and our kids. It's a bit pricey at 12 euros but the kids are free. If you are inclined to also visit the Kunsthistorisches Museum (and Neue Berg) you can get a combi ticket that will save you some money. It's a nice collection and has some very interesting pieces. For pure bling the... More

I went to see the Imperial Treasury of Vienna with my brother as both of us find it fascinating. We used the audio guide which was excellent. We loved to see all the rich history of Austria's Kings and Queens. The glamour of the Jewelry, the crowns and tiaras were fantastic. We saw the Emperor's Unicorn horn, which is a... More

Walked through in awe of the beautiful items on display. The audio guide goes into great detail about each part of the collection. Clothing, jewels, crowns and every kind of religious artifact can be found here. This is a must see.

I was pleasantly surprised this treasury museum wasn't about coins. Instead it taught me about the history of the Austrian empire. I didn't pay for the audio tour but read the signs at the displays. Royal clothes, jewelry, weapons, and other relics were displayed. They were quite extravagant and beautiful. I'm glad we went here.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
