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!

this brilliant little gem if a museum was spoilt for me by the complete lack of information on any of the exhibits. The only source of information was the hand held digital device which you needed to exchange your passport for. No passport no info. Bring back the paper labels.

Having bought the Innsbruck Card at tourist information I discovered that admission to this museum was included, and I am glad I chose to go in. You can combine your visit here with that of the Hofkirche as they share an entrance. This museum is really unlike any other I have ever visited. The way they have chosen the pieces... More

The name of this museum is slightly misleading, it doesn't contain paintings but it mostly everyday objects - albiet decorated/decorative ones. The museum is built around themed displays - parlours (the main room of the house traditionally), life and death, clothing, the cycle of the year. There's a lot of interesting stuff for anyone with any interest in Tyrolean history/culture... More

The collection of Christmas cribs is very good . However what I loved were all the preserved panelled stubes. Some were from simple country farmhouses, others were grander. The stoves were all different and all lovely.

Actually this is a great museum...with lots of different rooms set up in various Tyrolean styles. I loved all the different glazed stoves that used to provide heating to the rooms. Lots of other stuff on costumes if you're interested.
