I thought the entrance fee expensive and the collection less than impressive. Apart from their 'showpiece' crown, and a couple of the jewels, there was not much of interest to me.

The Imperial Treasury was one of my favorite sights in Vienna. It was amazing to see all these historic items in real life that you read about in history books. To fully appreciate the museum you need more information than the signage on the displays. I took along Rick Steves' Vienna guidebook which gave a room by room tour. I am sure the audio guide available for rent at the Treasury would be helpful as well.

This is definitely a must-see in Vienna. They have an amazing collection that you just can't see anywhere else.

Tip: You could easily spend 5 or 6 hours (maybe more) in here so plan accordingly if you really like these kinds of treasures. Otherwise, you can use the audioguide and listent to descriptions of those items that really interest you.

The treasury is a must-see for both the amazing artifacts and the museum itself in the way the materials are presented.

I spent two hours with the audio guide and just stopping to look at some of the pieces in amazement, and I could have easily spent longer (I didn't listen to each and every summary on the audio guide).

The craftsmanship that went into the crowns and jewelry was simply brilliant and, to me, equally impressive was the craftsmanship that went into making some of the textiles and garments, each ornately hand-embroidered.

I would recommend it to anyone visiting Vienna.
