The Hofmobiliendepot (Imperial Furniture Collection) is a furniture museum housing mainly furniture of the Habsburg monarchs. But Austrian furniture designers and architects of the 20th century are also represented, p.e. Adolf Loos, Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffmann. It is worth seeing it.

In museum is presented furniture of many architecture styles. You can use audio guide but it was not in so many languages like in Schonbrunne palace or Hofburg. In museum the most interesting, especially for these one who saw Austrian movie Sisi, is furniture from the mentioned movie.During our visit there were not many tourists so it seems that it is not well known tourists attraction.

As described in some other reviews, these are the home (OK, palace) furnishings of the Hapsburg empire, now owned by the Austrian government. It's a working government entity (they still loan some of this stuff out and use it for government events and other purposes), but in the meantime, it's a huge storage facility, some stacked in great wire storage bins like a giant antique market, and some more important pieces in museum-style displays. Easily accessible for English-speaking visitors. We had been to Vienna a number of times before we discovered this place existed. It's not a "top-of-list" must-see, but it's a fascinating thought that the Hapsburgs moved their court around (about 1,000 people) with all these furnishings as they went from palace to palace during the year (they didn't keep all of the palaces full-time furnished). The sheer volume of what that meant back in the day to move around on carts (these were not moving-van days, folks) is really quite something to think about. This is the only museum like this I have ever been in, and it was fascinating.

This all seems new inside with renovated displays. A very airy museum in a lovely building . Very clear explanations in English
After the Sisi museum, this was my favorite, not stuffy, some beautiful exhibits if you have any interest in design and history with a very appealing on site bistro.No ques, no crowds, go before it gets too well known!

This museum is also a working division of the Austrian Government and is fascinating. You must be interested in the history of furniture and manufacture to make this visit worthwhile and I do not recommend it to the "bucket list" tourist, of which there are many.

It might be quite interesting for an architect or an interior designer, a layman might not find it worthy of his/her time.

Part of the sisi ticket so we had to come , hidden away down a side street. Nice building some interesting furniture but I was quickly bored.

To begin with, you should be into furniture and interior design to enjoy this place. If you're not, there are many more places in Vienna to spend your time. If you are, then you'll enjoy being up close with pieces that are so exemplary of their times and places. Particularly enjoyed the Modernism exhibit on Wagner, Loos, et al.

Bought the Sisi ticket which included this museum. Agree with other people’s comments that the furniture could be used to fill some of the palaces l saw. The displays were good and the special displays of 1920/30 furniture was amazing. As it should the designers, the homes it came from and the background of the people who owned it. Also found the logistics of how the royal households moved with their furniture interesting. Well worth a visit.

When the palaces and their contents were taken from the Habsburgs, the government was obviously at a loss about what to do with their new acquisitions. It was rather sad to see the stolen "booty" tucked away in this "furniture collection". Some grand tables were disassembled and just stuck into a little cubby hole. Much of the contents were lent out to the film industry in years passed and were damaged.

It would be preferable to see the furniture back in their rightful places. It is a reminder that the great monarchies built great things, but that modern democracies are good at destroying those great things.
