30000 pieces of arms and armoury make up the biggest and most fascinating collection of this kind in Austria, and indeed, the world. Styria between the 15th and 18th centuries used to be in almost constant conflict. This armoury came about from the need to stockpile large quantities of armour and weapons between 1642-1645. As such, this collection is also original. The museum has four levels, each of which is absolutely thrilling - firearms, swords, sabres, polearms, artillery and armours for both men and horses – they have it all. The guides at the place are very knowledgeable, and will be delighted to discuss the collection with you.

A great place to visit, if you love middle ages and history, but you have to know that in the period from November to March, it have only guided tour from 1 o'clock, it doesn't have a free tours on the museum. Our guied was perfect, positive and told us a lot of information. This place its the original armory store of Graz from middle ages. Recommend to visit.
If you're into medieval weaponry / warfare and have a significant other who possesses the patience of a saint you should totally go here. The Styrian armoury is the largest storehouse of medieval arms and armour in the world, and getting to have an up close experience with some of the really fine artistic details on these pieces is really special. There are no placards explaining what you're looking at (just a little booklet they had you), so maybe invest in either the audio or guided tour depending on how much ice cream you can afford to buy your partner to make up for the time investment.
Amaizing collection of weapons From the Middle Ages. warm recommendation for a visit.
Amazing historical place to visit.
It's a must visit if you are in Graz. People from Graz said that this is one of the largest collection of medieval arms in Europe, a statement that I was too lazy to verify. However, just the sheer amount of arms in display was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful. Only complaint though was the way it was displayed. For instance, all the guns were stacked in a shelf, and there is not really a way to see the intricate details of trigger mechanisms of some of those. You are allowed to take photos without flash, and also ask the staff if any questions, some may answer. Overall a fine place to visit.
