Styrian Armoury

Living History



Among the 21 departments and institutions of the Joanneum Universal Museum, founded as the Joanneum in 1811, the Armoury is in a class of its own. Attracting around 55,000 visitors annually, it is the Joanneum’s most-visited institution without an exhibitions role. Moreover, as the largest historic armoury in the world, it is a living memorial to a chequered, conflict-ridden past, whose bogeymen and prejudices are still with us.

Please note: In order to protect and preserve the historic site there are no signs and text available about our artefacts in the exhibition rooms.



To ensure you enjoy your visit please refer to our visitors' guide, multimedia and audio guide or tour guides to receive more information on the history of the Styrian Armory and its unique collection.
