Very Interesting yet Unusual

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!

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
