Imperial Furniture Collection

An Impressive Look into How the Imperial Families Used to Live

For a unique and enlightening experience, come visit the Imperial Furniture Collection (Hofmobiliendepot). This one-of-a-kind museum is dedicated to demonstrating how the imperial families used to live. The furniture of the Habsburgs was stored and kept in extremely good shape. When furniture was needed, it was distributed to the imperial households. This impressive collection is considered one of the most important furniture collections in the world.

There are thousands of exhibits on display at the museum, everything gathered over the past five centuries. The exhibits have a strong emphasis on Biedermeier and Historicism. Nevertheless, you will find a wide variety of items, including a Baroque easy-chair on wheels, an imperial travel throne, and praying stools with velvet pillow covers.

In the museum, you'll get the unique opportunity to admire the furniture of the rustic rooms of Empress Elisabeth in the Schönbrunn Meierei and you will experience the room of a young girl from the Biedermeier era. In addition, you will gaze upon rococo spittoons, room toilets disguised as "sitting furniture", and specially designed ladies' chamber-pots. The museum gives visitors brilliant insight into Viennese cabinet making and interior decoration from the mid-1700s. An interesting and fun fact: Furniture from the collection used to be used by people like filmmakers. Nowadays it only furnishes federal offices and Austrian embassies.

Another fantastic permanent exhibition you will not want to miss is Sissi in the Movies. This amazing exhibition takes visitors on a journey behind the scenes of the world-famous 1950s trilogy with Romy Schneider.
