Fantastic displays ...wooden parlours, nativity scenes, two floors devoted to 'life and death' and ' the passage of the seasons '. Extremely well curated and incredibly interesting range of objects. The English language guide works well once you have figured out how to use it.

Great museum but the audio tour was a little hit and miss. We returned the first two for replacement but gave up on the third. The museum has a great collection of cultural treasures including furniture ,wood carving and costumes and despite not being able to translate some of the descriptions enjoyed it very much. The ticket also gave access... More

Loved the costumes and examples of clothing worn. Also, the rooms of the time were interesting. Cashier a little cranky but the rest of the staff were very helpful. Bathrooms available.

Deep history of Tyrolean art including many fine exhibits. The layout is a little unusual but the interiors of Tyrolean rooms are straight from their original houses.

I particularly enjoyed going into the re-creations of the Tyroelan "parlours" from 1600 onwards and also the vast collection of old furniture. The miniatures and artworks were interesting but, as has been previously mentioned, information is minimal. It also got a bit repetitive. The current special exhibition on the history of signs and symbols was okay, but completely out of... More

Every object in this museum speaks of the rich history of Tyrol, the exquisite artistry, the bizarre folk customs, the intense devotion to faith, the everyday use of handcrafted tools and utensils, the colorful yet primitive artistry with which everyday objects were decorated - all of it well worth spending more than an hour at this museum. HOWEVER, what a... More

We chose this museum in particular, after reading the amazing reviews on here. Upon arrival we were greeted by the rudest person we've encountered since being in Europe. She clearly didn't want to be there, or have us there, I guess. We were not even told about the hand-held guides, so when we got upstairs we wandered aimlessly for a... More

I knew, Tirol is amazing! But when I visited this Museum, I understood - I love Tirol in all of his troubles and goodness! Amazing place!
