The museum in the Zeughaus is a place of Tyrolean cultural history. The building was built at the beginning of the 16th century by Maximilian I as an arsenal of weapons. The artillery was housed in the open halls, the war equipment was stored on the upper floor.
Today, the upper floor houses the exhibition rooms and the starting point for a journey through the history of Tyrol. From geology, mineralogy to economic politics and history, different areas are covered. Visitors will learn interesting facts about prehistoric mining, social grievances in the 16th century, the counter-revolution and the freedom struggle of the Tyroleans. In the 19th century the "conquest of the mountain country" by scientists, artists and tourists was in the foreground. Also the two world wars and the present as "European region Tyrol" are treated.
