We really enjoyed this furniture museum. Having an interior design background we found the exhibits to be fun and informative. A bonus was the exhibit on the life and times of Maria Teresa. If furniture and interior design is not your thing you will probably want to skip this one.

One of the world’s largest furniture collections is housed in a typical Biedermeier house in Vienna. A large part of the building is dedicated to the splendid collection of imperial furniture, with objects originally belonging to Maria Theresa, Franz Joseph, Crown Prince Rudolf, and Sisi. The museum also shows examples of the work of Austrian designers and architects from 1900... More

IMHO, this is the BEST of all the different Habsburg attractions in Vienna. It is simultaneously a museum to Viennese interior furnishings, an exhibit of the furniture of different Habsburg eras, and a warehouse of all of their crap that doesn't fit anywhere else. I suggest doing the top floor first, which offers some chronology, and then walking through the... More

I am so sorry but it was a such a waste of a half a day in Vienna... I wish we'd gone somewhere else.The place is boring, unwelcoming and has a bad vibe. A building stuck in the 1970s with mismatched antique stuff lying around.Do yourselfs a favour and give it a miss.

What do you do with the tens of thousands of furniture that belonged to Imperial households? This museum creatively answers that question a number of ways. One is to display furniture that was borrowed for movies next to monitors showing clips from the movie - very interesting! Another is to show many like items together. You want mirrors? Here are...

We had a great time in this place of "hidden" treasures of furniture coming from various epochs and castles!!! At a certain point you may try different types of Biedermeier furniture which was very funny! Biedermeier signs the start if our modern furniture as it is the first moment in history that citizens might have a sofa at home!! So... More

This is a really interesting exhibition of how the Imperial family moved around their various castles, how the furniture went with them and of course, it is stacked full of a huge range of furniture from the sublime to the ridiculous and from several centuries! There are three floors and an exhibition on Franz Joseph too as part of the... More

Although it has huge variety of ancient furniture but at some point it becomes boring. Plus there is nothing unique that we had not seen in hofburg palace or other museums.

We visited the Imperial Furniture Collection as it was included in with our Sisi ticket but in the main it was a bit dull. OK there's lots and lots of furniture to see here but nothing very different from what you'll see in the Hofburg or Schoenbrunn palaces and the museum is also a bit out of the way from... More

I had travelled to Vienna several times and had therefore done the majority of the major sites so being stuck at Vienna airport for 7 hours I looked for something different. The Imperial furniture museum sounded interesting. Firstly, the web site is confused as to the ordering of the tickets, I wanted to see the part of the Franz Joseph... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
