This is an adorable, well-planned and well-maintained museum giving a pretty good insight of Arnie's early stage of life. It is a tiny mseum (just as you would expect, as it used to be someone's home), right on the outskirts of Graz (20 min taxi from Graz centre, ~25€) and is an absolute must visit place to any Arnold or bodybuilding fans! Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Lots of exciting personal items as well as items from movies on display. On our tour in Austria, we visited quite a few museums but this was our absolute favorite because of how intimate and charming it was - no massive crowds, no overwhelming amount of items on display, everything was balanced perfectly and we left with very positive emotions. Thank you so much for an incredible experience we will never forget :)!

This is the place to be for Arnold Schwarzenegger fans! The museum is Arnold's old home, some rooms are full of memorabilia (movies, bodybuilding, personal life) while others are decorated the way they were when Arnold lived there. In summertime there are guided tours on weekends, for the rest of the year it's quiet - we had the whole place for ourselves although it was Saturday. Take also a little walk around the neighbourhood (there are some ruins nearby) and in the surroundings of Thalersee. There are a couple of restaurants close to the bus stop and the lake.

Some tips about getting to the museum by bus from Graz railway station (more simple than the museum website says): when getting off the train, follow the signs to Waagner-Biro-Straße (if you are in a hurry catching the bus like we were, this is better than going to the front of the station - it takes only a few minutes). When you exit the station following these signs, you'll end up next to the bus stop of line 85. 85 will take you to Gösting (last stop), and if you are lucky to arrive when the timetables match, the bus to Thal (48) is waiting there. Otherwise you'll have to wait some time, but it will leave from the same place where 85 dropped you off. In Thal the "Arnold stop" is Thalersee which is the turning point of this line so it's easy to notice. From there it's a short walk along the shore of Thalersee to the museum.

It was amazing well worth the trip!!! We stayed in veinna and few people said its too far away but if u give yourself plenty of time you'll do it... it's a must! The lady working there knew so much about him and answered all our questions. You can stay in there as long as you like... there also free tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water

Here is how we got here

We got the train to graz which was 2 hours... but the views on the train is amazing! When we got to graz jump on the 85 bus ( not the 40) the bus stop straight outside the station... stay on the bus till u get to ghosting... it's the last stop only takes 10mins... then get on the 48 Which is the same stop where you get off for the 85 again takes 15 mins.. get off thalersee again last stop.. if your not sure the driver will help... when off the bus walk up the road and you'll see the arnie sign! And boooom it's there.

It's a must!!!

Extremely underwhelming for this much money. They were really scraping the bottom of the barrel with the objects from Arnold’s adult life and movie career. This is a photo museum with some relics, without too much explanation. The audio guide was not available when we visited, maybe that could’ve provided some more info.

Great place to visit for an arnie fan! It was our reason for visiting the City of Graz...the 4km walk was beautiful! The Museum was totally worth the journey! The woman who works there was amazing too, so polite and enthusiastic...she even treated us to a free beer each after we bought some souvenirs! Highly recommended

I'm a big fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger and therefore, this museum was like heaven for me. It is practically a big mansion with each room having a different theme. It tackles the different aspects of Arnie's life. It depicts Arnie's bodybuilding, acting, political and personal life. There are life-sized models and we were allowed to take pictures. There is also a Harley which was used in the shooting of one of the Terminators. We really enjoyed ourselves here and I recommend it to all Arnie fans!

We stayed in Graz and it was easy to get the bus from Graz train station to Thal. You need to take 2 buses but it only takes 20 mins.The museum is just up the road from the bus top. First right theres a sign.

The museum itself is 5 rooms with items from different times in his life and there are loads of cool items such as the sword from conan and the bike from terminator.

Overall definately worth a visit

On a getaway from Vienna, my wife and I decided to stay at Romantic chalets. Being from LA and watching Arnie live out his dreams there. We decided to visit his museum and see where he grew up.

At the museum you get to learn lots about his history, see some pictures of his upbringing and service in the Austrian military and of course, learn about his life as an actor, see how proud he was to become an American, learn about his political career and finally, learn about his drivers in life and what his rules to live by are.

Both my wife and I really enjoyed our visit there and we fully recommend it.

Visited here recently as Arnie has been my hero all my life. Its nice to see where he grew up and the museum is fairly priced. Although I was hoping for more. I would of liked to see more movie memorabilia but other than that it was great to do in a lovely part of the world. The gift shop could be better. I struggled to find anything I really wanted but I ended up with a t-shirt. All in all its another thing ticked off the bucket list ✔️

Warning: This is a biased review because I am an Arnie fan. The visit was an inspiration. From this very humble origin, this home, in the little village of Thal, outside Graz, Arnie has gone on to conquer Hollywood and then even Governor of California. He is living proof of what blood, sweat and tears, and sheer determination can achieve.
The place is located on top of a quiet hill above Graz, and you can visit all of it and enjoy the memorabilia from small personal things he used when he was a kid to film and political artefacts... It gives you a very personal feel to the essence of this star. This is a MUST visit to all Arnie fans... You can also combine it with a visit to Schloss Eggenberg Castle which is just a couple of km away and easily the best attraction in Graz.
