The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Take the exit Andreasgasse from Zieglergasse U3 to reach the museum.
The collection is so reach that the depot is visible while visiting the rooms. There are not just furnitures used for Sisi films but also valuable pieces taken from Ausburger residences. I found interesting belongings of Prince Rudolph and Prince Maximilian of Mexico but actually all items exibited are worth a visit. The rooms are well described.
Those who know the history and the role of the Augsburgs cannot miss it as well as visitor interested in design (Biedermeier, Thonet, etc).
The audioguide is included.

We visited on a Sunday as this was included in the Sisi ticket and also most shops were closed. Really glad we didn’t miss out on this fascinating collection of furniture! There were detailed explanations on important furniture pieces throughout the periods and also the different decorative styles preferred by different family members and characteristic of each era.

The collection also provided some background stories which tied in really nicely when we visited the main palaces at Schönbrunn and Hofburg as we were already made aware of snippets of the royal family’s lives through their furniture!

I was meeting my daughter in Vienna for the holidays and had some time on my own. Doing a little research, I discovered this museum was having one of its FOUR English guided tours of the YEAR that day and decided to go. Only three stops away from Stephansdom on the U3 line it was super easy to find. And I LOVED IT. First they were very accommodating via email in requesting tickets the day before - I assumed they would be sold out since they literally only offer this tour in English four times a year. They assured me tickets were available. Not only was the tour not sold out, there were only three other people in it. The organized tour gives you access to two additional areas of the museum you don’t get to see on the regular tour - where they store the red carpets for state occasions and where they store the tables and chairs for banquets. The time in the actual museum is minimal but focuses on the fact this is a working location where they repair furniture from the hapsburg collection and the guide explained in better detail the workshop area.

But if you can’t make one of the organized tours (there are many more in German) don’t worry. The museum is EXCEPTIONALLY well laid out. Audio guides are available in multiple language although I did not use one. The signage is in both German and English. I was there for more than two hours BEFORE the tour then the one hour tour.

Probably not great for kids though there is a play area. As it was the beginning of my trip in Vienna I was a little confused by the timelines of rulers. But the museum covers from Maria Theresa through Sisi and Franz Ferdinand with additional exhibits on Thonet (which I did know was Viennese), secessionist design I to more contemporary furniture.

The building itself was constructed in 1898 specifically to house the collection of furniture. It was adapted nicely into a museum but it has its quirks. Wheelchair accessibility maybe linked in some areas but they made many accommodations to work it the best they could

This is the attic of the Hapsburgs who clearly never threw anything away. All the furniture, decorations, utensils and even a very early wheelchair. There is a running exhibition of the furniture used in the Austrian version of the movie Mayerling where clips are shown next to the actual bed, sofa chair etc shown in the movie. Fascinating. I'm very fond of the life size nude of Crown Prince Rudolph's mistress the ill-fated, 17 year old Baroness Vetsera. There are frequent temporary exhibitions of furniture and the like.

We came because it was free with the Sisi ticket and found it to be more than worthwhile. While we aren't super into design, the presentation and displays are clear and helpful (in English) and since they display only a small portion of the collection the items are interesting. Would recommend.

The Sisi trail is themed around Elizabeth Empress
Of Austria whose life paralleled a British princess
Two centuries later with beauty in excess,
A lifestyle with travel and opinions to express.
The furnishings and fabrics missing from palaces
Is in the Imperial Furniture Museum. "Sisi passes"
Include this alongside Hofburg and Schonbrunn
And it completed the experience. Not a lot of fun
But an interesting museum. A very good one!

This museum is extremely well organized, with the furniture set up in rooms like it was used by the monarch. There are also lots of thrones and crowns. The furniture used in the 1950s Sisi movies is easy to find. This is a very fine history museum, and isn't at all like furniture shopping. It's very close to the Haydnhaus. We did both on the same day.

It is not possible to predend visiting Vienna without staying at least a few hours in this KuK Hofmobiliendepot. History, art and austrian Court's way of life are close at hand and each piece of furniture, each item gives you the opportunity to understand, to appreciate and to regret this time in which the Imperial Family ruled a such great and beautiful State.
