Overview
More
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.

My husband was way more excited to see this than I was at first, but it really is an impressive collection. You need to be part of a guided tour to get the history and context of what you're looking at because there are no...More

Knights in armour is the business of the day at the Zeughaus. Take a trip back in time - in medival time that is. This museum features the early weapons of war and soldier chic that prevailed more than 300 hundred years ago.

Since seeing pictures of the Zeughaus in a magazine when I was a child, possibly a National Geographic, I’ve wanted to see the Zeughaus. Having quite an interest in arms and armor, I was captivated by the collection and it’s history. This made the actual...More

This was a museum over 3 floors, with extensive displays of old armour and pikes, guns etc. Quite repetitive unless you are an expert and can tell one design of armour from another! We were there in March and the whole place was freezing, no...More

A magical place with amazing history from 400 years ago. A beautiful collection preserve in its original Hause that makes you go back in the time. The English speaking guide had a great knowledge about all objects in this place.

This place is SO amazing. It's like a army surplus store from the Knights of the Round Table. It's filled with armor and swords and everything else used to fight battles. It blew me away to see how thing use to be a long long...More

Good example of 15th and the 16tn Century Weapons. Somewhat reptitive in that this is what is left from a working armory and not specially collected as museum pieces. All are preserved in working order. Museum stopped being used as an armory prior to 1800....More

Without a guide, it's just a bunch of swords, guns, armor, etc... With a guide, it's an exciting lesson about Renaissance warfare, including why unused armor might have bullet marks, how the invention of the hallebard meant extinction for heavily armored cavalry and how to...More
