The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Amazing collection
    This was the best museum we did in Vienna. There are actually two sets of Crown Jewels. One for Rudolph and one for Charlemagne. The Charlemagne one is so old it’s remarkable!! They also have relics like a piece of Jesus loin cloth or a piece of the tablecloth from the last supper. Also more traditional gems and vestments. The audio guide is very well done.

    Exquisite Displays
    We were on a 5 day visit to Vienna and planned to visit the Kaiserliche. We were certainly not disappointed with exhibits from the Roman to the Austrian Empire. All exhibits well posted in German and English . The imperial jewels and robes were exquisite. We spent a few hours there and then got refreshed in the lovely cafe. We bought the tickets in the day €12 each . Excellent value

    Visiting the Vault
    The entrance to the Treasury resembled a vault and it makes sense given the many artifacts and valuables inside including some crown jewels. While I would consider other sites in Vienna to be must-sees, this is still a nice museum to visit if time permits. We purchased the combined ticket with the KHM Museum online that gives access to both sites on the same or different day at a discount. By the entrance, there was a gift shop, free toilets, and lockers (needs a 1 Euro coin that you will get back).

    Crowns, jewelry, robes and much more
    Honestly, I was a little disappointed with this museum. Under the name "Imperial Treasury" I imagined an exhibition of crown jewels and lots of jewelry. Yes, you can see really beautiful royal crowns here as well the jewellery of Empress Elisabeth, but the most represented are church objects and robes. In any case, there can be seen the real treasures in this museum, including the world’s largest cut emerald.

    Great collection of historical artefacts
    Great for history buffs and fans of old relics and over the top vestments and crowns. Jewels on display are amazing and the wealth on display is a bit beyond comprehension. This is a great addition to a visit to the Kunsthistoriches Museum that contains other “gifts” to the Hapsburg that are also over the top (and probably couldn’t fit into the treasury). Highly recommended.

We visited the Imperial Treasury of Vienna, where we saw an impressive collection of crowns, jewellery, robes and other riches. While there are sign boards throughout that explain the various displays, I highly recommend purchasing the audio guide. That way, you can listen to detailed descriptions of the pieces as well as historical information. Also, the Treasury is quite dark and sometimes crowded, which can make it frustrating to try to read the signs, so it's better to listen on the handset.

The Treasury is set up as a series of small rooms to explore, but it can be a bit of a maze. Make sure you follow the numbers of the rooms and displays to make sure you don't miss anything. We had to double-back when we realized we missed a room or two.

It was an above average museum for me. There were quite a few Crown Jewels and artefacts in the museum. But generally, it was a little crowded with many people blocking my view trying to take photos. Most of my photos taken turned out to be too dark because of the dim lights.

You’ve been to all the major art museums, this is the one that completes the picture. Two hours is enough for your first visit…fyi we visited a second time within days and learned even more.

So many amazing treasury items and much bigger than I expected. Unfortunately for us there was a fire alarm drill in place and we had to leave just as we’d entered. We had to wait for a while in the square and by the time we got back in we had to do a quick run round before we missed our flight! But what we did see was truly fascinating. Lots of crowns, robes, sceptres and jewellery! Stunning! No photos allowed inside

Enjoyed the exhibit and the fine clothing. Especially the embroidery. The jewels were very nice but nothing compared to the collection at London Tower.

I love jewelry from all time periods and have seen some amazing pieces around the world. I was expecting some exciting bling from such a long reigning family, but it was mostly ceremonial robes & religious relics. A couple amazing crowns but no personal period jewelry of the family etc. At least one display of women’s items would be warranted. Hard to find but quick to get in. 16 euros for adults/12 euros for seniors. Storage lockers provided for backpacks, it cost a euro, but you get it back when you put the key back in the lock. If you’ve got nothing else to do, it’s a good look around. But I saw more interesting things at the Dorotheum Auction House about two blocks away!

They have an amazing collection, not only from the crown jewellery, but also valuable objects that added value to their collection, such as, a fragment of the crux, spere of destiny, swords and cloaks from the crown knights.
It is amazing to watch and you can not spend enough time, everywhere you look is something amazing to meet the eye.

Interesting and long way to visit all dresses and jewels. There is no queueing to get entrance ticket. The entrance is hidden when being in the square.

After a missed try to visit this museum several years ago I finally got my chance during my recent visit to Vienna. While the displays of the Crown Jewels and elaborate clothing items were impressive I left feeling that I wanted more. It is not a huge museum but in the end I am happy I saw it but not completely satisfied.
