There is a nice collection of weapons of war outside the Museum buildings proper. Two jet aircraft and a number of armored vehicles. The weapons exhibited inside still appear to be fully functional, including a Flak 36, the infamous 88 mm antiaircraft gun used as...More

A very interesting military museum, housed by one of the former Arsenal buildings. The building itself is a work of art and takes your eyes as much as the exhibits. You’ll see plenty of weapons, uniforms, military equipment, flags of various ages and various wars...More

The most developed section of the museum, in my opinion, focuses on World War I. It begins with the automobile used by Archduke Franz Ferdinand when he was assassinated, sparking WWI. His uniform, which still has his blood on it, is on display in a...More

This is an impressive museum with an excellent section on WWI. Seeing the car in which Archduke Franz Ferdinand was shot gave us goosebumps. The display items are amazing. Don’t miss the Panzerhalle (tank hall) that is part of the museum and just to the...More
