Great place Mar 10, 2011
To all of Vienna's visetors, it is worth it to spend few hours in this great museum. If you visit viennaon the winter or you have a rainy day, do not think it twice to head for one of the city museums.

Truth about Sisi Jul 29, 2010
In fact, the museum debunks all the myths about the Empress Elizabeth, who in reality was not so cheerful, unpretentious and in love with Frnaz Josef as shown in books or films.

The exhibition located in the Hofburg shows truth about Sisi. It turns out that throughout her life she was incredibly shy and slightly alienated, and when at the age of only 15 years old she heard that he is going to marry Franz Josef - she started crying. Later she started to suffer from stiff courtly etiquette and boring duties of the spouse of the emperor- she believed to have irretrievably lost freedom. Since the emperor loved her, unfortunatelly without reciprocity, he let her do many unusual things starting from the gym, practicing extreme sports and the relentless travel, to which she passionately devoted herself during the last years of her life.

The museum is worth seeing, even though most of the exhibits are not original (jewellery and dresses are replicas), however, gives answers to many questions about Sisi.

Knowing more about Sisi - Sisi Museum Jun 14, 2006
If you are in Vienna and are interested in knowing more about SiSi aka Empress Elizabeth of the Habsburg, you have to visit this museum.

When I went to the Schönbrunn, I got the "Sisi ticket" which included a visit to the Sisi Museum. This museum is located in the Hofburg castle and its main attraction is the exhibition of different belongings from Sisi.

They also exhibit clothing from Sisi and tell you the story about her life, which is surrounded by mistery. There are movies about it. At the end you can also visit her private apartments. So nice!
