Tyrolean Folk Art Museum, Innsbruck

Art Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Housed within an old monastery building, Tyrolean Folk Art Museum serves as an extensive repository of a wealth of regional crafts, costumes, cultural artifacts, and more. Pay a visit to the museum, one of the most popular and well regarded of its kind on the continent, and explore its collection of items documenting life in the region of Tyrol. Wander the exhibits and displays covering centuries of local history and development; the museum focuses particularly on everyday items and traditional crafts. Take special note of the mixture of Germanic and Italian influences present in the museum's artwork and holdings, a feature stemming from the region's historical borders. Don't miss seeing the museum's rooms taken from Tyrolean farms and houses of the Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque eras, which have been carefully restored with decorations and wood paneling.

  • We had the combo ticket so we visited this interesting museum. It has a huge collection of old artifacts, objects and the " Stube " the typical wood paneled rooms where families spent most of their time. Descriptions are in Italian, English and German. Worth a visit !
  • Only went because I had the combi ticket, but thought it was brilliant. Little English translation, but great design and layout of exhibitions! Especially loved the last will of Maxillian, very atmospheric.
  • For who is interested in folclore and Tyrol style of living, this is a great museum! I truly recommend it!
  • Interesting museum for sure. Worth the visit to check out all of the old artifacts from Austrian life. The have a rotating exhibit on the 3rd floor too. It was about smoking on my trip. Fun to walk into al the old, wooden parlors too. Connected to the Church, so easy to do both in one.
  • Small museum but interesting way of display & present any story
