The Viennese collection numbers among the best of its kind in the world. It is the best-documented collection of court arms and armour in the western world!
Visit the exhibition!
A visit definitely pays off if you are interested in late medieval armor and weapons!
Some highlights are the Armour for a Horseman by Tommaso Missaglia, the Cuirassier Armour by Lorenz Helmschmid for Emperor Maximilian I, the Boy's Folded Skirt Armour by Konrad Seusenhofer for the future Emperor Charles V, as well as the Half-Armour alla Romana by Filippo Negroli and many others. The often magnificent etchings were quite frequently based on designs by such famous artists as Dürer and Holbein.
New: The entrance is now in the "Weltmuseum Wien" (see picture below).
