1981 wurde das Garnisonsmuseum als Expositur des Stadtmuseums eröffnet. Der historisch äußerst günstig gelegene Standort auf der Kanonenbastei des Grazer Schloßberges gibt diesem Museum einen besonderen Charakter.

Uniformen, Waffen, Ausrüstungsgegenstände und Bildtafeln führen die BesucherInnen durch die militärische Geschichte der Stadt Graz. So erinnern die vier Kanonen in der Kanonenbastei an die Belagerung des Schloßberges durch die Franzosen.
