Housed within an old monastery building, Tyrolean Museum of Popular Art serves as an extensive repository of a wealth of regional crafts, costumes, cultural artifacts, and more.

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.

  • The museum wasn't on our original itinerary but I'm glad we visited because there was lots of interesting items to see, including traditional costumes and furniture. It sits within a former monastery ...  more »
  • Versatile exhibits, good overview of the culture of Tyrol. In particular the history of Andreas Hofer is excellently prepared. A visit is worthwhile in any case if you are in Innsbruck.

  • 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...
