  • We had a great time being awed by all the bright and shiny jewels and precious metals. This a large and extensive collection and ranks up among the best royal collections I've seen. In the beginning I wanted to see every detail and by the end, I only focused on the highlights. Definitely worth seeing.
  • A place to go to see all beautiful and rich inheritance of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Carefully collected and maintained with great attention, each piece at this exposition has its history behind it. Highly recommend to take a guide to make sure you uncover more of the stories of these treasures.
