Swarovski Crystal Worlds Jul 17, 2009
This ‘museum’ is definitely the weirdest museum I’ve ever been to. Not only will you see items made of crystal (which there are a lot of), but you will see other things that you may not associate with crystals (like dancing mannequin legs) and wonder what that has to do with what you’re looking at. It is a wondrous site, but also one where you don’t need much time to walk through, as all the crystal starts to look the same after a while. It’s all presented in different ways, though. The museum part will lead you to the Swarovski store, which I found to be more interesting than the museum part. I would recommend Swarovski Crystal Worlds just to experience the weirdness, and then to go shopping!

Innsbruck, Austria is home of the largest of the Swarovski Crystal Galleries. Located in the old town district just about a block away in the quaint medieval lanes where you will see the Golden Roof of Emperor Maximilian, in a 15th century building this huge gallery displays many of the beautiful and precision cut crystal items created by this well known jeweler. Most of this three-story facility is not only gallery but also sales, so most items you see are for sale, but the bottom floor is strictly museum with displays that change from time to time. During the time of our visit there were many ladies gowns on display, bedecked with crystals naturally. They were absolutely gorgeous.

This is not a place to take a wife or girlfriend if she cannot look without purchasing, temptation is too great. But it is not only jewelry, but so much more. Chess sets, figurines, chandeliers, and much more. If you like bling, this is for you!
