Specialty Museum · Museum
Landeszeughaus hosts the world's largest historical armory with over 30,000 pieces on display. Admire rows and rows of weapons, tools, and complete suits of armor used for both battles and parades. The armory was originally built to equip soldiers in defense against the Ottoman Empire in the 1600s, and Styria has carefully preserved the collection ever since. During World War II, authorities hid the equipment in remote castles and successfully avoided damage. Today, you can view the pieces in the original building. If you visit in wintertime, be sure to schedule a guided tour in advance. Add Landeszeughaus to your Graz travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Graz trip itinerary site.

  • Despite of a rich collection and The most biggest in The world there iš nothing interesting for an ordinary tourist. Just a huge number over The 4 floors diferent types of arms. About 10 Eur admission. Without audio guide spend about 30 min. Nice view from window to The court yard arches
  • An incredible display of medieval weapons and armor. It hasn't been changed so much that you feel like it's a museum. It's properly an armory. But more effort could be out in to describe what is housed there. The audio guide is limited and there are no plaques to speak of.
