Among the 21 departments and institutions of the Joanneum Universal Museum,...

Among the 21 departments and institutions of the Joanneum Universal Museum, founded as the Joanneum in 1811, the Armoury is in a class of its own. Attracting around 55,000 visitors annually, it is the Joanneum's most-visited institution without an exhibitions role. Moreover, as the largest historic armoury in the world, it is a living memorial to a chequered, conflict-ridden past, whose bogeymen and prejudices are still with us.

It's been few years ago we have visited this museum and since then we always talk about it when in Graz. Such a small town with such an impressive little museum.

This is really something to see and our guide was fantastic, I wish we had stayed there all day to speak with him - he really knew his stuff so well. My two sons really loved this place as we had come to Graz especially to see this museum. If you are into this sort of period there is absolutely... More

The collection was amazing. Makes you want to put on some armor. It was a nice place to slow the day down and really imagine what it may have been like back in the day.

It was worth a visit. As student we got discount, however, museum is not that expensive. You can really see some cool stuff and guide will tell you many interesting things. My favorite part was a horse armor. ;)

Unique world class moment in history. Arms and armour for 6,000 men from mid the 17th century. If you know your stuff, avoid the guided tour, but if you are just generally interested do take it. Outstanding attraction

Practically this would be a childrens army nowadays due to today's average body size. Nevertheless great place to get a feeling for past times.

Really impressive museum with thousands of items on display. It is worth to visit it even if you dont like so much armour and weapons.

We found info on this Armoury museum online and thought it sounded really interesting, so we decided to check it out. They say it's the world's largest historic armoury with 32,000 pieces of armor, weaponry, etc. It is still housed in the original building, which was built in the 1600's. During WWII, all the pieces were moved and stored in... More
