My children call this the creepy museum because it is full of folklore items as well as more everyday household things. They mean it in a good way though and enjoy visiting ! It is not expensive and the exhibits are of a high standard. There are rebuilt rooms from typical Austrian houses as well. There is an interesting shop... More

We particularly enjoyed the rooms reconstructed to depict the era. There are a lot of exhibits on show. There is extensive coverage in English so we left with a good understanding of what was on show

The museum provides a wonderful insight into Tyrolean art and crafts. The decorative work, home decoration and clothing, which can still be found today, all have their roots in the history revealed by the museum. A truly fascinating exhibition, which is very well worth seeing. One of our favorite Innsbruck experiences.

My German is somewhat limited, and few display cases have English along with the German, but the way that the rooms are organized and the way that the items are displayed, one does not need to be fluent in German to appreciate the range of talent and artistry of the exhibits.

It has everything to do with Tyrolean Folklore. It was comfortable to be situated opposite the other big museums and art galleries. We loved the chalet models, constructions. The atmosphere was special and the smell of wood unforgettable. Loved it! It also was included in our "Innsbruck Card".

The rooms that have been restored, showing living quarters over the centuries is very good. There is not a audio guide, but rather a handheld reader unit to help one through the museum.

There were several different things to see here from replicas of insides of houses to some old furniture, tools, and odd items such as a "birth pain vial", first communion cards, and hon (yes, hon) holders for a wet stone for sharpening the scythe.

Allow an hour or two to explore the arts and crafts of Tyrol. At the same time, gain excellent insights into life then and now in the Austrian Alps.

We visited this on the morning of Sept. 15, and two hours later, we were wishing we had more time to spend there! Love the exhibits, and the history! We used our Innsbruck Card for this also. If spending any time in Innsbruck, the card is a great investment! But I digress, if you have any interest in history and... More
