The Austrian Navy

200 years of Austrian naval forces and their way from “appendix” of the armed forces to the world’s sixth biggest naval force are presented in this section of the museum. Prodigious models from all eras, especially the world’s biggest and most detailed cut-away model of a “dreadnought” from World War I, animate the mental image of the navy. Special attention is directed to the importance of scientific expeditions conducted by the Navy or individual officers.
