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.

  • Excellent museum. You pay 11 euros for the ticket and has the right to go to 2 other museums in the city. Unfortunately I didn't have time to take advantage of this opportunity and ended up knowing only this, but it was very worthwhile. I visited many museums in Austria, in Vienna and Salzburg that showed what life was like at the imperial court. ESS is interesting because it shows what life was like the people at the same time, as were the houses, clothes, objects used. I loved having closed the Austria trip this way.

After that, there are exhibits of old utensils's three Christian in some corners (? ) Of the paintings here, the Devil (?  ), There was a Museum in General differ in flavor, and many strange exhibits like scared children. Overlooking the Court inside from the top in the middle.

  • Good museum, all about the Tyrol and past.

  • 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...
