  • This museum I insert one of the 5 most beautiful and things not to miss in Innsbruck! Innovative and traditional at the same time, brings to light many aspects of Tyrolean culture: from everyday objects, local tools, wooden huts (or stube) reproduced and furnished as they were in reality! Surprising the media room that chronicles the life and work of Maximilian I, Emperor who built the Hofkirche, another jewel you can visit (from above) in the museum complex! One hour minimum it takes to visit but not get bored!

  • Good museum, all about the Tyrol and past.
  • Fun exhibits, lacks some extra info on the items displayed.
  • One should be for this House absolutely sufficient/much (!) Take time, which Museum prepares Tyrolean people's lives and arrestingly and very realistic with attention to detail. The Stuben, ab - and here again was rebuilt from old farms in painstakingly are particularly authentic: take place and listen via audio guide to the stories and feel set back in those times where there people were together after the hard work...
