Among the 21 departments and institutions of the Joanneum Universal Museum, founded as the Joanneum in 1811, the Armoury is in a class of its own. Attracting around 55,000 visitors annually, it is the Joanneum's most-visited institution without an exhibitions role. Moreover, as the largest historic armoury in the world, it is a living memorial to a chequered, conflict-ridden past, whose bogeymen and prejudices are still with us.

The Landeszeughaus contains an incredible arsenal of armory, guns and more from approx. the 16th to 18th centuries. We joined a guided tour in English, which can be highly recommended as there are some great stories to be told. Our whole family enjoyed the visit,...More

Sometimes called The Styrian Armoury, this is an unrivaled collection of historical armour. Four floors packed with cannons and cannonballs, pole weapons, ancient rifles that must have been a nightmare to fire and maintain, old pistols, and more. So crowded is this armoury that there...More

Looks small, but you can spend 2 hours just gazing in all old weapons and armors on display. Highly recommend a guided tour.
