“Not very impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

The very expensive visit to the Imperial treasury is not very impressive if you have already seen other collections of this kind like the Russian or British. It has a vast collection of garments and religious artifacts, as well as jewels, showing indeed how powerful were the Austrian Habsburgs. But I think that the visit to the Kunsthistoriches Museum is much better to see royal collections and artifacts, so if you do not have much time in Vienna you can totally skip this place.

“Great collection of Royal jewlery and crowns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

The first of several "royal family" attractions we visited this year in Vienna.
An impressive collection of many kinds of jewlery, crowns from many centries of emperors and the royal families. Beautiful display and lighting.
The only thing which spoiled our visit a little bit, was taking photos without flash, since it is forbidden. So if you don't have a professional camera, photos will come out not at a good quality.
Take at least an hour to see the whole collection.

“You must visit here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

All the Crown Jewels are stored here, and they are amazing! A must see on any trip to Vienna, this museum deserves to be much higher ranked than it is. Apart from the jewels themselves, there were outfits, furniture and religious artefacts. Entry was (I think, we have been to four museums today) €12.

“What Wealth the Imperial Treasury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Very well displayed items that are of great importance to the history of Austria. Such wealth is only on a par with Russia. The well preserved silk brocade garments, gold and silver ornaments and religious items are a real eye opener as to what life was like within Austrian royalty.... Take time to indulge yourself into another demension of Austrian History.

“If u are a sucker for historical gems, jewellery and artefacts then you cant miss this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We found this place very well organised. The movement is well planned thru the museum and its well maintained and self explanatory. The audio guide is very helpful and a MUST!!
Dont miss it.. though its a little steeply priced.
