    Postscript: Having spent the past Easter weekend in Vienna, I took the opportunity to revisit the Austrian Army Museum three years after my first visit.

    A statue of an Uhlan in front of the main entrance now greets the visitors. This is a copy of a work created ca. 1914/15 by the artist Arthur Kaan (1867 - 1940):

    During my first visit, the WWI section was closed for renovation and re-modelling. It has since re-opened, so I could catch up with what I had been missing the first time around. Due to lighting conditions etc., we once again took hardly any photographs, but here are a very few highlights from that section:


    The 1911 Gräf & Stift automobile in which Archduke Franz Ferdinand took his last fateful car ride (his bloodstained uniform is also on display in the same room):

    Thanks for sharing these pictures Andreas! I am jealous that there is no American museum with displays like these! The Austrian history is very interesting. I am looking into the Poles who lived in Austrian territory.
