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.

One of the very best collections of its kind in the world! Get the audio guide and use it! Spend some time and listen to the stories of the pieces that you see. It is worth it. Honestly, you should block off at least two hours for a visit - and you will probably wish you had more time. The... More

There are many interesting treasures from all over the last Austro-Hungarian Empire. If you're a history you should definitely visit it. For example you can see there the imperial crown of Otto I.

My significant other and I visited the Treasury today. It's usually closed on Tuesdays, but it was open today (day before New Years Eve/Silvester) under holiday hours. I expected the crowds to be worse, but there were not that many visitors for the middle of the afternoon. It was easy to see everything and get all the pictures we wanted.... More

We visited the Treasury in the morning to avoid the crowds and had no trouble seeing everything. Make sure you get the audio guide so you know what you're looking at. Extravagant jewels, crowns and other trappings of royalty. Make sure to visit the treasury while at the palace complex!
