I really liked the architecture of the museum, the whole place was exceptional but.... i think that the plates and glasses were too much... It depends on someone's taste but having to see a few million silver plates for the first hour was a bit...More

This place is hard to miss since you'll most likely get entrance into this museum too when buying a ticket to Hofburg. And you will have to pass through this museum on your way to the Imperial apartments. We went there early and in November,...More

This museum is outstanding. Along with the audio guide and the authentic surroundings you get a real feel of the life of Sisi and her Franz Joseph. A gem of a museum!

Really enjoyed the Sisi Museum, however I do think they should manage the guided tours better, so they don't cause so much of a bottle neck. As the group we got caught in was quiet large and blocked others from getting passed.

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

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!
