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.

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

Helmets, shields, guns, body armours (for horses too!) swords, lances, jousting poles, bayonets, pistols, cannons galore!! Well worth a visit, included in the 48 the Universalmuseum Joanneum ticket.

This was one of my favorite things in Graz. Just to see all of the armor and weapons in one place was incredible. There are approx. 32,000 objects including armor, shields, helmets, guns, knives and swords. It was incredible. I didn't take the tour. I...More

A very different kind of museum where the sheer number of exhibits overwhelms the visitor. The great thing about the Landeszeughaus is it appears to be frozen in time, a very realistic armoury from the period in question. The armour is worth a visit in...More

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

go hand see, especially if you are form the 'new world' (Australia, US, NZ) - and are interested in how 'they' were equiping their armys and miliyias in the middle ages. Get a tour!

If you like history and medieval armory you should visit this museum, the guide visit is very good. Very complete collection with some dummies to try! The only bad thing is you can't take photos
