This museum houses the furniture that the royalty used in all of their homes, ummm, palaces throughout the year. An entire palace would be filled with furniture and accessories from a storage space. The Winter Palace and the Summer Palace would be completely re-done for each visit. You will see multiples of everything imaginable!

If you have Sisi tickets this is one of the things is covered. It was interesting and had things and pieces of furniture from the Royal family. We found it was a average and boring.

The Imperial Furniture Collection was included in our "Sisi" Ticket. We had planned to only spend an hour and ended up being there all afternoon. We had to leave when it closed at 18:00

The story of the furniture and design from the royal houses and during the 20th century in this collection is very clear. The museum was very quiet but if you have any interest, fascinating

This is a very "factual" museum although it is also well-presented. There are rooms full of more or less similar items which were used in the various palaces visited over the years by the Emperor. There are also some reconstructed rooms from particular places. There are extensive explanations of how the imperial household funtioned and moved around.

We loved the exhibition at this museum. Fascinating look at the Hapsburgs and furniture design over a few centuries. You start in the "storage depot" and move on as if through a vast attic. Next are a series of rooms set as if you are in the 1600s through early 1900s. With an little extra attention to Sissi. The special... More

This museum has an impressive collection of all kinds of furniture from all imperial palaces in Austria. Those who are inserted in Prince Rudolf should really visit this museum since they have collection from Malienburg and his personal belonging and even his personal drawings. The museum is not on the most popular tourist route and is usually not crowded so... More

Visited as part of the Sisi ticket and am glad we did. Very interesting to learn how the court furniture was moved from palace to palace. Also, an interesting exhibit on "Light". Nice Chinese restaurant adjacent to the museum.

Visited as part of the Sisi ticket, and might have enjoyed this museum more than any of the others. The Hofburg, Schoenbrunn, etc., are lovely, but are arranged so impeccably that it was refreshing and exciting to see the controlled chaos of the Imperial Furniture Collection. After seeing the scale of the palaces, this museum gives you a sense of... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
