Very good and informative exhibit on Sisi (the Empress Elizabeth) and her life. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Would recommend the tour wholeheartedly, especially to those interested in royal history.

Walked the museum honoring Maria Teresa, the queen of Franz Josef. Self tour was very informative as you learn about the daily life of Sisi. Can be busy so get there early.

My wife and I went to the Sisi Museum paying 20 euros for us. I expected the museum will be busy but the design of this museum is very poor. Much of the museum is narrow with displays reducing walking space. One could barely walk...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!
