Wonderful tour. Amazing collection of items from 1200’s to late 1800’s, swords, coronation robes, jewelry, and the Imperial jewels. The cross and orb were on display and amazing. The crown was out for analysis but there was a very informative video with up close pictures and a very through analysis of the various parts. Surprising was the extensive ecclesiastical collection of church artifacts. The Hapsburgs had many beautiful items such as crucifixes and reliquaries. Well worth the visit. Allow 60-90 minutes.

Very interesting place go visit with all the royal family collections. It doesn't take too long to walk round and everything is well spaced out so you have time to look at everything. You do not need the audio guide as everything has information written beside it so you can then walk round at your own pace and direction.

Very nice exhibition. Besides of course the splendor and invaluable value of everything, also admiration for the work, the hours, the creativity of the people at that time in manufacturing all those gems. Also interesting for our 9 year old girl, she had seen the first movie of Sissi and was able to make the connection with the robes, the scepter, the crowns etc.
