Vienna: the military history museum

On the Tuesday, we took the tube to Wien-Mitte and then the S-bahn to Sudbshnhof so we could visit the Heeresgeschichtlichtes Museum – the military history museum, which was formerly the city’s arsenal. The building is absolutely gorgeous.

We saw the car in which Franz Ferdinand was assassinated.

And also his bloodstained uniform.

There was also part of a U-boat on display and a bunker that had clearly taken a hit from a bomb.

Not to mention a bomb that was bigger than Chloe!

I rather liked the French military balloon from 1796.

I like the balloon too. It's much prettier than the big, scary bomb lol.
