An eye popping display of the royal opulence. We toured without a guide, and it still took us a good two hours. There’s enough info on the display cards to connect the dots on your own. History doesn’t have to be your favorite subject to visit this one.
My favourite was the Narwhal horn or "unicorn" horn! There are many very interesting treasures to see, robes, jewels, tabards, and more. On the Vienna Pass the entrance is free, don't forget to check your bag in at the lockers or the security will get fierce! It was eye-opening seeing how opulent the regents in the past were!!
A must go if you're only couple of days in Vienna. The treasury museum shows in detail the historical development of the Romanian Empire and the Habsburger Regime. Lot of detail if wanted but you can also just walk through and be impressed by the treasures.
Audio tour was interesting and informative. Lots of truly beautiful artifacts and clothing from centuries of Hapsburg rule. There were lots of rooms with similar things to see which drew out the experience a bit too much for me. The crowns and jewels were amazing.
If you like “bling” check out this exhibit. It is a wealth of opulence and the history behind them is quite interesting. Want to know what the heads of state were wearing during ceremonies? Want to see how fancy a Christening can be? Do you like jewels and gems? This the place to check them all out.
