The quarter of the museum which is WW1 was fantastic. I didn't enjoy the rest of the museum, the items aren't as good and a lot of the sections aren't in English. The building is attractive

Starting with the location, it is rather far from the bus stop. The information display is poor, you have to read it in a sheet of paper at the entrance of each room. It was interesting though the focus on World War I and to...More
Learn everything about Austrian military history from the 15thC to the end of WWII. Very well organized display cases. However, ask for the English audio guide, as the display captions are only in German.
