The permanent exhibition is dedicated to the "Sissi movies" and the furniture used in these movies, which was mostly borrowed from the Imperial Furniture Collection.

Your day is rounded off by a wonderful concert at Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery. This historic baroque hall, which, being a part of Schoenbrunn Palace, has been declared a UNESCO world heritage, was highly appreciated by the Habsburg royalty, who used it for lavish parties.
