Museum with a wide collection of folk objects - handicrafts and objects of use. Good collection of reconstructed parlours. However, there were almost no labels or printed materials to explain what was going on. There was an audio guide - but you could only borrow one if you handed over your passport as a deposit - which struck me as... More

if you're into folk-art, this is the place to be. They have a verry extensive collection with some really interesting artefacts. The wooden chambers are really worth seeing. When visiting Innsbruck and you have one or two hours, this is a must-do

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!
