Sisi exhibit to celebrate tenth anniversary of Museum

Sisi Museum celebrates tenth year

A special exhibition is being held at the Imperial Palace in Vienna's first district to celebrate the tenth birthday of the Sisi Museum.

The museum dedicated to the Austro-Hungarian Empress Elisabeth, wife to Emperor Franz Josef I, houses artefacts and objects belonging to the Empress, who is affectionately known as Sisi, and takes visitors through the personal rooms used by the family when they stayed at their home in Vienna.

To mark the tenth birthday, an exhibition called "Silk - Lace - Ermine" is being held in two of the rooms and will present for the first time some of the clothes worn by Sisi included two dresses, an ermine ensemble, a bathing robe and various accessories.

The exhibit opens on 24 April and runs through to the end of the year, closing on 24 December.

The permanent exhibition documents Sisi's life, from her happy childhood to difficult marriage and adult life up to her eventual assassination in 1898.

In total, the museum has seen more six million visitors come through it's doors since they opened in April 2004.
