Among the 21 departments and institutions of the Joanneum Universal Museum, founded as the Joanneum in 1811, the Armoury is in a class of its own. Attracting around 55,000 visitors annually, it is the Joanneum's most-visited institution without an exhibitions role. Moreover, as the largest historic armoury in the world, it is a living memorial to a chequered, conflict-ridden past, whose bogeymen and prejudices are still with us.

The Zwinger in Dresden has a fabulous weapons collection full of bejeweled swords and daggers, but nobody would ever think of using one. But the Arsenal in Graz is THE REAL DEAL -- no jewels, no museum back-lighting; just every manner of weapon from the...More

Nowhere in the world you will find that much of medivial arms and weapons. A must to see if you visit Graz. Not open during winter.

If they fleshed it out with a few paintings, records of battles or other related artefacts that would make it more interesting.

If you're into military histories and generally love armours, the Styrian armoury is for you. It takes anywhere between 30 mins to 60 mins to walkthrough all the four floors, and it is well-worth investing in a 24hour Joanneum's card to access this and the...More

Yes, take guided tour. It is much interesting then strolling around on your own. One of the amazing facts that you learn this way is that most of the items have not been actually collected for the display, but are the leftovers of the actual...More

The place is really interesting. But without a guide it is completely random. That's why you should check the time there are guided tours since it's just possible to go inside with guides. But you won't find much more that you see on the pictures....More

the guide was well educated in history, it doesn`t make sense to visit this museum without a guided tour

It's been few years ago we have visited this museum and since then we always talk about it when in Graz. Such a small town with such an impressive little museum.

The collection was amazing. Makes you want to put on some armor. It was a nice place to slow the day down and really imagine what it may have been like back in the day.
