This museum included two floors of seemingly endless art work, antiques, paintings, sculptures, antique furniture, life size mannequins in folk dress, and recreations of living quarters. Attached to the museum was the Hofkirche Church with more than a dozen huge bronze statues. There were many photo opportunities with no restrictions. Also, there was outdoor cloisters. When we were there, there... More

I expected the 'same old' but it was quite different. Instead of mere history into the "Royals", the place gave good insights into the tyrolean style of living!

This was huge both in size and scope. It explored Tyrollean culture with exhibits of furniture, hand tools, pottery and ceramics, kitchenware, wool carding machines, folk clothing, spinning wheels, glassware, lots of things made from horn, elaborate wooden chests, and in one wing, a series of typical Tyrollean parlours with amazing carved timber ceilings Watch your head because the doorways...

A unique absolutely wonderful museum that is not well known. It would take more than one day to do this museum of Tirol history and folk ways justice but even if you have a little time it is a worthwhile visit.

This was marvellous. It is a museum of the ordinary people, showing how they lived and worked, not just the belongings of the privileged few. There are reconstructed houses and meeting halls, so you can wander in and sit down to imagine yourself a visitor. All around a cloister-like arrangement which takes you through the seasons of the year, with... More

Lots of costumes and furniture from years bygone. A little look at the customs and carvings from a different time

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

So varied - you'll fidn everything, from historical Tyrolean furniture, troditional clothes, old tys, nativity scenes, arts & crafts to carnival masks and monumental statues. Nicely presented, very interesting even with children.
