Inside the museum you could get a complete picture of the years when Sisi was living. A lot of personal objects, pictures and stories. Very well organized.Your visit will be guided by a electronic recorded voice in the language you prefer.

The museum gives an insight into the life of Sisi. It was interesting to see her gymnastic equipment and her bathroom (an innovation at the time). Her dresses were gorgeous and the jewels, although replicas, gave one an idea of the splendour she enjoyed. It was quite astonishing to see that she basically had one room which served as a... More

The price was about 11 euro for students, which is definitely worth it. The museum has some amazing collections of silverware, as well as gorgeous old rooms.

This is great for Sisi fans and does a nice job of telling about her life but somewhat disappointing in terms of seeing how the royalty lived. Access to a small amount of rooms. Located at the Hopsburg palace.

This woman story is very interesting. She was forced to marry his cousin when she was 16 felt her life was miserable because of this. She was always away from the palace and never enjoyed palace's life. In the museum it's possible to see some of her belongs and her history. The museum is located in the Hofburg Palace and... More

Empress Elisabeth was an egnigma. Shy, alloof, melancolic, brillant, vain, egotiscal are just some of the adjectives that can describe this woman. She is my favorite historical figure and never ceases to inspire me as she marched to her own drum beat. The world be damned. It was the highlight os my visit to Vienna and the reason I came.

After thinking you paid 12 euros to see 10 rooms of plates and saucers you will finally enter the Sisi museum. The museum does give a decent insight into the life of the empress however I feel the written information could be more personal and descriptive (I loathe those audio guides) Unfortunately much of the clothing, jewelry etc is reproduced...

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.
