Truly a wonderful museum with quite the collection of various globes from all periods of history. Really fun
One of the specialty museums which can be visited as part of the Austrian National Museum is the Globe Museum, found at Palais Mollard, near the Imperial palace. This is a nice speciality museum, particularly for those who enjoy old world and astronomy globes The Globe Museum, has over 240 different globes on display of various shapes, sizes and ages.... More
Even though it was the height of the tourist season, the Globe Museum was delightfully quiet. There were only a few people wandering through the many, many globes but it was definitely worth the price of admission. A lot of the signage had English translations which was nice. There were so many different types of globes and they are displayed... More
