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

Cool war museum. Personal highlights was the car that Franz Ferdinand was assasinated in and an 80 tonnes WW1 Haubitzer. A typical 4-star museum. But for the low student price of 4€, this qualifies as a 5-star attraction

I am a military history buff, and I also served in the American armed forces. I walked here from my motel; a long walk, but I wanted the exercise. (It is very close to the train station) I spent almost 3 hours in the museum. They have an amazing section devoted to every conflict up to and through WWII that... More

We visited using the hop on hop off bus. The museum is the stop before Belvedere. It has s huge and we were not very enthralled by many of the exhibits. The star is the area covering the First World war - including the car Franz Ferdinand was riding on when he was shot! Brilliant.
