I first visited this museum in 2013 and was incredibly impressed, however 4 years later it surpassed expectations. There is an extensive WW1 collection which wasn't there last time. The displays also included Archduke Ferdinand's car in which he was assassinated in, and also the...More

We thought this was a great place. I would have to say take the audio guide as most labels on displays are in German! (or take a German speaking friend with you) Some amazing things here though and some beautiful art!
