This is a very interesting tour to have especially if you get an audio guide as there are so many things to learn. The museum describes the life and activities of Sisi and presents the rooms - official and private, her travel kit, exercise room and many more. The best part is to go to the island of Corfu (Kerkira) after this tour in Vienna and see the 2nd part of her residence. Is it really nice to get to put the pieces together, everything she admired and she did. Again an audio guide is most recommended as the guide will tell you more about the "commercial" details rather than historical facts.

This is a very long tour, so you get your money's worth. I went to see the Spanish horses first and then came here, and those two things took up the full morning. You start by looking at silverware, and then place settings, serving dishes from many of the monarchs. Some stories behind them are more interesting than others, and, quite frankly, I got a little bored of plates before I was done with that section. But when you got to the rooms Sisi shared with her husband, it was fascinating. I didn't know the story of Sisi, and found it intriguing. The rooms are very well done, weaving the story of her life with facts about the room you are seeing. I really enjoyed it, although I probably wouldn't recommend this tour for anyone under the age of 12.

There is an amazing amount of dinnerware and kitchenware in the begin and many rooms of the former Royal Apartments. We were a little tired after travelling from the San Francisco. Rest up and go. There is much to see and facinating information.

I was not particularly interested in the subject matter but was converted by the time I exited the Museum.

The first part of the display feature thousands of items of state dinner services (plates etc.) There are only so many plates one can appreciate. The second part was the fascinating and sad story of Sisi (Empress Elisabeth) of Vienna. The third part was a walk through the imperial apartment rooms.

I was so surprised. The museum has huge collection of dining ware in a mint condition. This really gives a good impression of how grande the royal lifestyle used to be. The museum is conveniently located close to the Spanish riding school and the best shops.
