The museum is the only public museum in the world devoted to globes. The globe collection consists of 600 pieces. Good for a visit on a rainy day!

During our walk around today we passed this and didn’t really know what to expect. It’s pretty much what you’d assume. A range of globes from across the world and from different times in history. Cheap enough for a quick look around.

You can learn all about the history of globes in this small and peaceful museum from ancient Rome to the Renaissance and up to the 20th century. The shadows and light give this place a moody and archival feel that suits the content perfectly. A...More

Being interested in astronomy I enjoyed the globe's displaying the star constellations and a few of the very old globe's, but I think unless you are really interested in globe's you may find this place a little repetitive, worth a visit as a side attraction...More

You will not see so many unique globes at one place anywhere else in the world. Not many tourists and good price so it is worth visiting.

The historical part is quite interesting. I think that the scientific and technical information is too sketchy. The interactive displays do not work well. I appreciated that all information is given both in German and English, which is not always the case in Austrian Museums.

It should be on the website. I do not recall how much it was, but not more than a few Euro. Very good value.
