Our tour through the Susi museum was an eye opener in terms of how many sets of dinnerware a dynasty can order and how many dinners they can host. Some sets years in the making and never used. Seems excessive! The Susi museum detailed her...More

The whole Sisi thing seemed to be over promoted and over rated. The museum is a good place to learn history, if you are willing to put up with a lot of other not-so-interesting things.

Ugh. Visited on a Sunday afternoon with my six year old granddaughter, using the audio tour. She is a usual size six year old. I spent most of our visit shielding her from adults who were pushing and shoving her out of their way to...More

While I enjoyed the visit, it was really all about Sisi. I suppose it aims to use her to present the history of the era, but I think I would have preferred a broader view. The cutlery and crockery just did not engage me, but...More

A must see when visiting the city of Vienna. Lots of information about Empress Elizabeth inc replicas of her outfits. The building is stunningly beautiful. Photography is not permitted.

Worth going! Don’t miss this museum iconic of Austrian heritage. Learnt a lot about money and possessions don’t translate to happiness. Better to have less, live a normal life and happiness is more available

The museum is impressive, as it hosts a whole collection of kitchen sets which belonged to the Austrian imperial family (including the silver collection), an illustration of empress Sissi's life and the imperial apartments. It is worth seeing, even if it takes some time.

Yes, you can wander through without a formal tour or the audio self tour, but I would pick up the audio tour. The history is fascinating and you can move at your own pace and skip sections if you like. As for photos, you... More

as we were there during off season we were able to walk in, so didn't purchase tickets online. If you have a concierge at your hotel, send an email prior to your trip. They are incredibly helpful. Have a great time!
