Interesting to learn about the Empress but could have been a lot shorter. Upside was that the ticket included the imperial palace rooms as well

The silver museum that you view first is overwhelming in it's opulence and quantity. The Sisi museum helps to understand the woman a little more and the displays are well put together. The audio guide is given to you anyway as you enter ......no choice! Often they are a chore to use but this one is very informative and concise... More

Very comprehensive exhibition shows the full picture of the life of Sisi. A little bit expensive but worth it.

Loved learning all about the doomed Princess Sisi, so many amazing artifacts and belongings. Would recommend to anyone with a keen interest in imperial history.

Having followed the Sisi period and watched a film about her we could not miss this museum.It is such a wonderful display on view and can only be appreciated first hand. Don't miss out.

This museum is one of the most interesting museums of history that I have ever visited. The hand held speakers brought the exhibits to life and made them even better. The grand life of the Hapsburg family is displayed in a way that is awesome. Don't miss this one.

This museum is included in the ticket for the silver collection and the hofburg palace. Personally I didn't find it very interesting and it also went on abit. OK if you are really interested in the Empress Elizabeths travels etc.

Once you visit you get to know better the history of Sissi or at least a little more about her. It has an impressive collections of silver plates and porcelain worth seeing. An example of good taste and expensive kitchen tools.

Poor Sisi - thats what we thought coming out of this museum. A beautiful but seemingly deeply unhappy princess. However, this museum is well worth a visit. The Hapsburgs are an extremely interesting monarchy if you like your history - and Sisi is only part of that!

First, make sure to take the audio guide, it is free! Although it speaks a lot, you can move on to the next piece whenever you like. The tour starts with a whole lot of cutlery, plates and table silver. Next up is the Sisi museum, followed by the living quarters. Overall a very nice tour

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
