The Tyrolean Folk Art Museum houses the most important collection of cultural artefacts from the Old Tyrol region.

The collected exhibits mainly come from the fields of arts and crafts, home industry, masks, traditional costumes and popular piety. The objects come from different social classes - from the aristocrats to the peasants. The diverse museum traces the sumptuous festivals and celebrations in the "Prallen Jahr". In "Precarious Life" the worries and fears of people are addressed. The "Miniatures of the Gospel" are a collection of cribs and the exhibition "Schein und Sein" is dedicated to traditional costumes. A multimedia preview also conveys the historical background to the Court Church and the work of Emperor Maximilian I.

Historical Information

As early as 1888, the Tyrolean Trade Association decided to establish a "Tyrolean Trade Museum". The first collection mainly consisted of handicrafts. At the beginning of the 20th century the collection was extended to include works of art. The Tyrolean Folk Art Museum was opened in 1929.
