The Porcelain Manufacture Augarten is the second oldest one in Europe. Since it is a niche subject, you should have at least some prior interest in it. The museum is small, but takes you through various styles, giving you some insight into the different ways porcelain has been used as decoration and functional appliance. For a more in depth experience, make sure to attend a guided tour. Attached to the museum you will find a shop with their products, though their flagship store is located in the inner city of Vienna. Their creations make good gifts to bring home, but make sure you have some spare change. These are high quality pieces of artwork, which is reflected in the price.

Nice surroundings and a large shop to buy expensive and fragile objects. Passed by and entered the museum, too. Not much additional value if you are not special porcelain enthusiast. However, we learned a few porcelain related facts. Never know if we should need that knowledge some day...

I am extremely happy I went here. It’s not something you would stumble across by accident. It’s still in Vienna but not in a touristy area. I love porcelain and have a collection of different kinds, although I was not familiar with Augarten. And the visit was all I hoped it would be. But... It was expensive for what you get. You have two options. The museum by itself (7 euro) or the museum plus factory tour (17 euro). While I do not speak German, my daughter does, and at no point were we made aware that the factory tour was conducted in German until it started. They do have an audio guide with English voice over at certain stops. But it was clear that what was being told the group was FAR more than what was given me in the audio guide. Luckily my daughter could fill me in on some, but she didn’t know what I did or did not hear. But I still enjoyed it. For the most part I could get the gist of what the guide was talking about during the tour, and it was still a treat to see the production areas and tools. But I did feel it wasn’t a great value for 20 euro for the two of us. The museum had bilingual signage but I feel it failed to provide a lot of info. It took a while to realize that a progressive timeline of the museum required one to start upstairs. But done in any order it really just showcases a beautiful range of products and how styles changed over time. Again I loved the exhibits, but it’s a small “museum” and at 7 euro was one of the more expensive specialty museum entrance fees we paid and it doesn’t give you a lot. Worth noting, if you don’t know Augarten Porzelan, it’s very high quality. And very expensive. This is not your average gift shop. Even with a display of seconds offered at half price, you won’t walk out without spending a good deal of money. A (beautiful) bisque snowflake ornament was 29 euro. Worth every penny considering what it is, but not a tourist souvenir shop. Plan your wallet accordingly.

It is a little out of the way, but worth the effort if you like porcelain. Many beautiful figures. They have both guided and self guided tours. We did the self tour of the museum portion and did not tour the factory. It is in a park and there is a very nice cafe in the building.

I enjoyed learning about what goes into making pottery and the history of it. However, it wasn't a very large museum and there wasn't a lot to see. Also, the gift shop was small and everything was incredibly expensive! I'm glad I went, but I will not be returning.
