This museum is huge and superbly presented. You could easily spend a whole day seeing everything on display. I only had 2 hours, so visited the WW1 and WW2 exhibits which are my particular period of interest. I was extremely impressed, and fascinated to view these periods of history from another perspective. The "star of the show", in my opinion,... More

A wonderful Military Museum providing insight to the long history of Austria from the middle ages to the 20th century. Including artifacts from the two failed Turkish invasions right up to WWII. Outside is a armour park of WWII tanks and equipment besides the inside exhibits. Leave at least an hour for a quick overview tour, but more time if... More

Fascinating museum with the undoubtable highlight being the Sarajevo room. Having the chance to see the car (complete with bullet hole) in which Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie died was spine tingling. Could also see the blood stained uniform and the chair on which he died. Elsewhere in the museum can also see the couch on which the assassinated... More

From Knights to Nazis this museum has it all. It honestly deals with it all in spectacular displays of the weapons and events of Austria's History. If you love History this is a must see.

This was one of the best military museum we have been to anywhere in the world. Inside you will find several floors and wings dedicated to Austria-Hungary history from the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) to the present. In this first exhibit are displayed uniforms, military equipment, weapons, time period paintings and manuscripts. In the Turkish Wars (late 1600's) exhibit are... More

This is probably one of the worlds best historic museums, a place where you will both feel the great power of the Habsburg empire, smell the gunpowder of the 1:st world war, and experience some of major turns of world history. I can highly recommend this attraction both as a museum, but also to experience from where Kaiser Frans Josef... More
