Very interesting museum. Goods martial history, archeology from stone age to Roman and later, Austrian history between WW1 & WW2. Would have got a 5 except not enough in English.
Nice place to see around the small town. The uphill passage to the castle is very cozy and calm. The restaurant near here, Schlosscafé, has good grilled menus and environment with reasonable price.
Nice collections,wish more of the text would be translated to English tough.
This place's got everything to keep one busy for a few hours: interesting exhibits on the topic of art, music, war, technology and more and a pleasant view of the city.
Having a blend of all the Cultural, Financial Automotive Arts Display one should definitely visit this place if you are in Linz also you can see a view of some part of Linz from here. Will require around 3 hrs to see the complete Schlossmuseum.
