So varied - you'll fidn everything, from historical Tyrolean furniture, troditional clothes, old tys, nativity scenes, arts & crafts to carnival masks and monumental statues. Nicely presented, very interesting even with children.

I like visiting museum and this is one of my favorite in Innsbruck. Could easily spend >2 hrs here. I'm so regret that i didn't request for the Audio guide and wondering why am i not being asked??

This museum is located next to the Hofkirche and its well worth doing both. However, i found the Folk Museum a little bit creepy to say the least! It had a lot of religious memorabilia and I was sometimes the only person in a display area. I walked through quite quickly. I did like the Parlour exhibition though as you... More

We attended the fabulous programme. Very entertaining and culturally enriched. Forgive me to share this: there were some europeon guests, who were highly disturbed due to HUGE presence of INDiAN tourists aorund. Was SAD to see the the real face of TRUE EUROPEON RACISM.

I started to walk on the top floor. As soon as I got out of the lift, I felt like I was walking in a ghost house. The had pretty scary religion-related collection there on the top floor. They even had the door that opened automatically so that you can see Hofkirche from the top of the church (very nice),... More

I spent about three hours here, and the time flew by. What a great collection of folk art! I found it worthwhile to get the audio tour. You can listen to each exhibit by typing its number, which allows you to skip the things that don't attract your interest, or to go in a different order. I feel that I... More

It is a very interesting museum. We can see a lot of amazing examples of Tyrolean art and everyday use items. What I liked the most are reconstructions of Tyrolean houses. To my mind it's the number one attraction in Innsbruck. If you are there - visit Volkskunst Museum. You will like it for sure!

There are several floors here and I didn't quite get the reasons why they would mix some of the things together. There was a deeply religious aspect alongside replicas of "stuberl" and typical Tyrolean tools. I know the Tyroleans were pious, but the way some of the religious aspect was presented was creepy. The artefacts from a past era were... More

This is one of the best museums I have visited (and I have visited many, all over the world). My main complaint is that of using their audio guide. Their German audio guide has a lot more information than the English one. For example, one of the exhibits is of different Vorstuben (front rooms) from different times. With the German... More

the audio system did not work perfectly for us. great examples of period buildings, lifestyle, clothing, furnishings and history. Lots to see, can spend as much or as little time as you wish. There is a fee to visit. It is also next to the cathedral and right next to the Alstadt (old town).
