The building complex itself is beautiful, and while it is currently a bit hard to get to, the train station nearby is being massively expanded, so I expect that it will be easier in the future.
Here are some pictures from the museum.

Since we were in Vienna before Austrian National day, they were also setting up for a large army display in the Heldenplatz. Most of the displays were not finished, but the soldiers were drilling, and some of the heavier equipment was set up already.
Anyway, Vienna was a great city, and I would like to go back sometime when I have more time to get out into the countryside and see Wagram and other nearby battlefields.
