"Military History Museum" Heeresgeschichtliches Museum Wien -Museum of Military History Tip by MichaelFalk1969

 
 

This is an often-overlooked but very interesting museum for any history buff: It features arms, armour and weaponry from the Middle Ages till today. Especially worthwhile: The collection from the Turkish Wars, culminating in the 1683 siege of Vienna, and the exhibtion around the one and only sea battle Austria ever waged when it still had access to the Adriatic Sea, the battle of Lissa.
