Graz Tour Ideas
Among the 21 departments and institutions of the JoanneumUniversal Museum, founded as the Joanneum in 1811, the Armoury is<br />in a class of its own. Attracting around 55,000 visitors annually, it is the Joanneum's most-visited institution without an exhibitions role.<br />Moreover, as the largest historic armoury in the world, it is a living memorial to a chequered, conflict-ridden past, whose bogeymen and<br />prejudices are still with us. Between 1642 and 1644, the Styrian states of the realm – representatives of nobility, clergy and townspeople – erected the “State Armoury” building according to fplans by Antonio Solar.
