This is a good museum to get a glimpse of the life of the Habsburg rulers - and especially the sad story of Franz Joseph 1's wife (Sici) with a lot about both the myth that was created after her death (like Princess Diana) and her real life. You also get to tour the rooms that they lived in. Have... More

The first section is a huge collection of rare porcelain and candle-holders that reflects the "Art de vivre". The next one, the imperial apartments, is even more impressive. Just wonder if the love that Elisabeth received from her husband was mutual...

The Sisi museum ticket comes with the silver collection and imperial apartments. A few minutes after it opened, we were in a corridor full of people heading into the silver collection, which we didn't want to see again. We asked whether we could go straight to Sisi and were directed through the shop and up the stairs - job done!... More

It was okay, in the first floor you can see lots of plates or silver things that they was used by Halbsurgs. When you climb the floors you can see great Sisi's dress, toilet, and something like that.

A very large museum where every inch is devoted to Sisi. You first pass lots of cutlery, golden dishes of Austrian emperors. See napkins and other stuff. Then take an audio guide and go inside Sisi's venues. It's a shame you can't take photos. See all the statues, her belongings, bedrooms and bathroom. Enjoy her wardrobe. You see that carriage...

When you first walk into this museum you will see the Hapsburg's collection of silver, china, crystal, candelabras and various other tableware. It's spectacular. What a large collection and it's in such great shape. When you are done viewing this you go to see Sisi's personal items and the interesting story about her life. I enjoyed seeing some of her...

The museum ticket gets you into the Silverware used by the royal family, the Emporess Sisi section is very inetersting and the royal aparments give a good feel for the characters at the time, with personal effects giving a feeling of ''someones just been there''.

Wherever you go in vienna you will see that princess Sisi figure is everywhere. So it's important to visit this museum even for some people they might find it uninteresting.
