Used my annual ticket to get in here. Initial impressions were not good... all info, the map, the details of the exhibits, seemed to be in German only. Ok for me but hey, it’s meant to be a ‘world museum’ isn’t it? The imperial armoury was quite impressive. But as I said.. all in German

I came specifically to see the famed "Moctezuma's Headdress". It is not known if it ever was actually his. In any case, it is an impressive sight to behold. The combination of quetzal feathers with gold and all of the other elements is just gorgeous!!!! I do not think I have seen a work of art so beautiful ever!!!! My reasoning behind this is that I have seen few things as beautiful as the quetzal feathers themselves. The color and the texture and the effect that these elements in tandem bring is simply breathtaking!!!! Aesthetically, the headdress is also exceptional. However, it was reconstructed. I wonder how faithfully it was reconstructed. There are many horror stories of how major ceremonial mounds in Mexico were incorrectly reconstructed by Archeologists and their colleagues. In any case, seeing the headdress or "penacho" is something I will never forget. As you enter the Weltmuseum it is on the left side of the building on the second level. It is in the room with other examples of Mesoamerican art. Of note is a shield which is also very impressive. It has a coyote on it. There is also a great section on Dia de Muertos in this room. This is a must see objet d'art in Vienna!!!!

I came in knowing that wienese museums don't have english explanations so what underwhelmed me is just how small and not really thought after this place is.. I'm not sure how can you spend 3h here unless you are seriously lost.. It was bland, dark (not for dramatic effect, mind you.. It was dark everywhere!), the museum staff unpleasant and unwelcoming (almost felt like I would need one of those armors I learned nothing about..) 100% not worth a penny nor your time!

The Weltmuseum houses some amazing pieces of armoury from Austria, Europe and the rest of the world. Along with the armoury there are some beautiful pieces of historic art and treasures. Step inside the museum and you are instantly in wonder of the beautifully decorated interior.

I brought my children to the Imperial Treasury the day before and I prepped them for even more exciting exhibits in the Weltmuseum as they loved European armours and weaponry from playing computer games. Of course these armours and weapons from real life have no magical properties that imbue invincibility to their owners but some of them were precious work of art. Habsburg emperors Maximillian I and II were avid collectors of armours so much so a Renaissance style of armour was named after them. There were also other armours from other places like Italy and Japan, not to mention the Ottoman Empire. Would love to know how they ended up here. After spending almost an hour on the 1st floor we went to the Permanent Exhibition on the M floor which has collection of items from all over the world which gave the museum its name. Still interesting but I still gave the Imperial Armoury the top rating. Tickets cost EUR12 per adult. Children enter for free and the cloakroom is free too.
