A very good insight into Empress Elizabeth of Austria, who seemed a very modern woman during those times. Definitely worth a visit!

A fabulous museum showing the opulent yet troubled life of Elisabeth Sisi. A combination of all that money could by and deep sadness are superbly illustrated in the excellent displays

Interesting to see how a live of a young beautiful woman ends up in sadness. So all the splendor does not help you to get....or become HAPPY.

This museum is about the life and death of the wife of Franz Josef the second last Hofburg emperor. Sisi was a well loved person with the common people and the museum traces her life with its ups and downs as well as her death through assassination. It is very well put together and tells a quite poignant story.

You start your visit at the museum of glass - don't waste too much time here, it's not the highlight. Just go along and turn your audioguide only if you found something really interesting. After glass museum goes Sisi museun and chambers. Your begavior here should be totally different - don't miss a single exhibit to have a full story... More

I loved this museum and enjoyed learning more about Sissi and her life. My favorites were the many collections of porcelain, dishes, vases, etc. Definitely do the audio tour, it was very helpful in explaining everything.

The museum is very impressive. The way that the empress's belongings are preserved is incredible. You can feel the awe that the austrians are feeling for her.

Really felt the whole Sisi story was drawn out and overdone. You can get the Sisi story at Schoenbrunn and as part of the Hofburg tour without doing this museum.

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.
