Besides that, is also interesting to know a bit of a world that seems very far from pour... More

The china and silver collection was nice but the 2nd floor is really what you come for - it's amazing, fantastic and gives a fair portrayal of Sisi, Franz and the Hapsburgs. A must see!

I guess if you were a big Sisi fan this would be interesting but from an outsider's viewpoint, she married her cousin at a very young age – she may have been in love but for the parents the unity was about political power. She seemed very sullen and sad but I can see why if she had to spend... More

You will understand every detail of Sisi´s life. I like this museum but I believe it is too big. I guess they try too show you so much detail that it gets tedious. I suggest not hearing every explanation of the audioguide because it gets too repetitive. Thanks god there are chairs in some of the rooms so you can... More

The location very good and the exposition is amazing. We spent there two hours, however, it worth that time and money we paid. Really the best museum to visit in Vienna. Strongly recommended!

It takes about an hour to pass through this interesting museum. Using the audio-guide while seeing the gowns, jewels, and other other items that belonged to Empress Sisi, you will learn a lot of very interesting facts about her. And you might understand why that beautiful, young girl became an unhappy woman...

This museum is actually combined with a visit to the living quarters of the emperor and his wife. A definite must for all Sisi fans but also quite interesting in that it gives you a good insight int eh daily lifes and routines of a 19th century emperor in Europe.

Amazing and informative museum. We spent 2-3 hours listening to the audio guides. My 8 and 10 year old even loved it. Wonderful and engaging. Would HIGHLY recommend taking the time to tour this museum while in Vienna.
