From the coronation to the tragic death
Among the 300 objects on display in the museum are parasols, fans and gloves, items of clothing, beauty preparations, her milk glass with its travelling case, her travelling medicine chest and even the original death certificate.
What she was really like, what was so attractive and captivating about her, no sculptor's chisel or artist's brush can render
In 2006 the SKB bought the so-called Klauda Collection of approximately 240 items. Elisabeth's travelling medical chest, her games case, a wash set and other items from the collection now feature in the exhibition. Other objects, such as her christening robes and milk tooth, are only displayed on special occasions.
In 2009, after 5 years in service and having welcomed over 3 million visitors, the Sisi Museum was closed for renovation and partial remodelling. The display was extended to include some spectacular exhibits, including the reconstructed Hungarian coronation dress, the black coat used to cover Elisabeth after the assassination, mourning jewellery and the young Sisi on her swing.
