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.

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

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
