Loved it
Mar. 2020
Visited Schonbrunn with my college aged son. We loved the Carriage museum!! So interesting to see the carriages for all different types of royalty and the improvements made over time. We also like the Struedel show and touring the palace and zoo.

Don't miss
We actually missed visiting the carriage museum the first day so returned the second and we were glad we did. Shuts at 4 during the winter months. The carriages are immaculate and from a variety of periods of the royal families lifetimes with a variety of uses from celebratory to funeral and processions. There are a couple of additional pieces including dressage attire and clothing of the actual family members too. Free with the Vienna pass

Hidden Gem on the Palace Grounds

This museum is located on the grounds of Schönbrunn palace but requires an extra entrance fee. If you have a Vienna Pass the tour is included on the pass. This is a lovely exhibit of royal carriages and garments. Photos (without flash) are allowed.

Don't Miss These Jewels!
Mar. 2019
The Imperial Carriages Museum was the biggest surprise of all the attractions I visited in Vienna. I was expecting some average, old dusty Habsburg carriages from the 19th century, and instead I discovered some of the most opulent carriages I have ever seen. It was especially impressive to me as I live in London and am familiar with the British monarchy's Gold State Coach and the Lord Mayor's Coach. The Imperial Coronation Carriage on display from the 1730s is both older and more delicately beautiful than anything seen in Britain, plus the mourning carriages--used during official funerals--are unique survivals from dark court rituals long gone. There was even a golden snow sleigh from the 1740s used by Empress Maria Theresa. In fact, from the early 18th century to the early 20th century the number and variety of coaches on display was incredible.The museum owns over 100 court vehicles, of which over 30 are on display. It is a paradise for royal history buffs.
Of interest, like many Vienna attractions the museum also carries items belonging to Empress Sisi, including her wedding train and one black dress showing her impossibly thin waist. An interesting video presentation (with English subtitles) recounts her groundbreaking, yet tragic life, drawing comparisons with Princess Diana's troubles.
The Museum is in the grounds of Schonbrunn just a few minutes' walk from the palace, but it has a separate entry ticket which is included in the Vienna Pass. The helpful audio guide is extra. I recommend leaving 1-2 hrs to see the museum after you have seen the palace, and to START THE VISIT FROM THE BACK OF THE HALL, where the most spectacular carriages are. Don't do like I did: I got so engrossed with the 'average' carriages in the front hall and the Sisi videos that I didn't realize the most spectacular coaches were in the back, and by the time I got there I only had 20 minutes before the place closed! The souvenir book is also one of the best I bought in Vienna.

Beautiful and Fascinating!
Nov. 2019
I didn't expect to learn as much as I did about the Emperor and Empress (Franz Josef and Elizabeth (Sissi))! The carriages themselves are beautiful to look at, and very well displayed, but the video exhibit is incredible. We wandered in here on our last day in Vienna, thinking we'd spend maybe 30 minutes out of the drizzle, but we were inside for almost two hours, watching all the videos. I highly recommend this exhibit!

Unexpectedly amazing!
Aug. 2019
Upon entering Schoenbrunn Palace gates we turned right and to see the carriages as last time I was there it was closed. With the Vienna Card access is really quick, otherwise its about E10 entry and there is a little shop there too. It is worth visiting - I loved it. You cannot miss it as it has a massive carriage display hanging infront. [see photo].

There are 3 rooms, 2 on the ground level and one up the stairs.

1. The first room has the older carriages to new developments - the history, even linked to F1 racing, plus videos in German [English subtitles] about Sisi, the Kaiser etc, really interesting. There are clothes Sisi etc wore and info why they were worn that way. You think these carriages are awesome, just wait until you enter the next room - the funeral carriage was so cool.

2. Upon entering the second room, I was blown away more so. These carriages were the top of the range, bells and whistles and glorious ones. They are preserved so beautifully.

3. Upstairs are paintings of their horses and other things.

*If you get too close to the carriages alarms go off.
*Staff are also knowledgeable.
*It is a quiet area, soft voices
*Placards are in English and German
*Spend time looking at the carriages from all angles as the carvings etc are just exquisite
*Photos are allowed without flash

An uncrowded and fascinating museum
Jun. 2019 • Couples
One of the advantages of the Vienna Pass is the the free entry into museums that you do not think you would be interested in. After seeing the high profile attractions at Schoenbrunn, we decided to see what the Carriage Museum has to offer. We were pleasantly surprised!

The carriage museum has an outstanding collection. The carriages help to tell stories of the imperial family and the times in which they lived. We enjoyed the various videos, and we would have watched all of them if we had enough time.

We also liked that the museum is quiet and peaceful compared to the main areas of Schoenbrunn. We could take our time and did not feel pressured to move quickly through the exhibits.

Jul. 2019 • Couples
After our wonderful, though crowded visit to Schonbrunn, we were walking towards the palace exit when we saw the signs for the Carriage Museum. We decided to have a look and are thrilled that we did. After learning about Empress Cece (Elisabeth of Bavaria) in the palace we had a much more intimate and detailed experience through the carriages at this museum. Highly recommended!

Stunning Carriages Perfectly Preserved
Jul. 2019 • Couples
The carriage museum isn't huge but it has a full representation of coaches, carriages and even a few cars used over the years by the royal families of Austria. I really appreciated the variations and detailed work on each vehicle. I doubt if the museum is ever very crowded so you don't have to rush through or feel closed in by too many people. Entrance is 9.50 euros or free with the Vienna Pass. The museum is located on the Schonbrunn Palace grounds but does not require a ticket to the palce to visit it. There are also some fine pieces of clothing (uniforms) on display here are well. I especially loved the Black Hearse from the late 1800s.

Great exhibition!
Jun. 2019 • Couples
A must do if you’re visiting Schönbrunner Palace. Beautiful carriages, amazing how well preserved they are. We really enjoyed admiring each and everyone of them. Not a big exhibit. About an hour to see the whole thing, so it won’t take much of your time.
