Fodor's Review

This might be the strangest museum in the city, and it's certainly the most macabre. The vast collection is entirely devoted to Viennese murders of the most gruesome kind, with the most grisly displays situated, appropriately, in the cellar. Murderers and their victims are depicted in photos and newspaper clippings, and many of the actual instruments used in the killings are displayed, axes seeming to be the most popular. The Criminal Museum is across the Danube Canal from Schwedenplatz, about a 15-minute walk from the Ruprechtskirche, the Hoher Markt, or the Heiligenkreuzerhof.
