A wide-angle view of history: this new, modern museum provides an impressive survey of Tirol’s turbulent history and its effect on the country and its people. The centrepiece of the museum is the gigantic panoramic painting known as the “Riesenrundgemälde”.

When I saw how uphill the walk from the Berg Isel tram stop was my heart sank. Then it nearly burst when I hauled myself up the hill. Totally worth it! The panorama itself is a fascinating piece of art and does look like the area it portrays. The panorama museum itself has an interesting display on Tirolean life and tourism. The attached museum of the Kaiserjaeger is fascinating for anyone interested in military history, and the view from the regimental chapel is stunning. Outside there are memorials to visit, a panoramic view of Innsbruck and a look at the Berg Isel ski jump.

This museum is part of the landesmuseum and is good value as part of the combiticket. But if you are at all lazy/infirm do not rely on the tram to get there. (I think the sightseer bus stops at the museum itself)

The Tirol panorama is connected to the Kaiser museum, both depicting the Tirol history.
The panorama is a 360' painting about Tirol-Bavarian war for independence. The museum displays artifacts and people from that time.
Not a must see, but if you have the high value Innsbruck card it is included, so why not.

The Tirol Panorama was about a 20 minute walk from my central hotel and it was a nice stroll down the road, very easy to get to. At the top of a winding path is a lovely little park with some statues and seemingly old alpine buildings.

The view at the top is good for the mountains but Innsbruck doesn't quite have the charm that other cities do when viewed from high up (Salzburg for example) but on a nice day it's a decent little walk.

I didn't go into the gallery so I can't comment on that

We allowed 15 minutes to see the painting before our transport was due to leave..... BUT

The entrance area was deserted so we stood at the ticket counter whilst the two reception staff finished their chat. Finally one of them acknowledged us and sold us 2 tickets and gave us 2 stickers " you must wear visible on cloths at all times ". We were further instructed to "put backpack and jacket in lockers at entrance". We walked back to the entrance and did this. We put this down to rudeness (making us wait) and poor language skills we walked towards the entrance...

The well dressed guard who had watch us waiting and purchase the tickets demanded " tickets". These were each examined and turned over twice ( very thorough ). He then pointed to our stickers and advised "good you go there " pointing to entrance.

We walked around the concrete entrance to find 2 long escalators down into the basement area. Taking these we ended up in a concrete lobby facing a double flight of stairs up to a further concrete lobby halfway backup to where we started. We approached 2 well dressed security guards to ask if a lift was available. Guard 1. "No lift only for disabled". I explained I have a bad knee so I'd prefer to take lift Guard 1 "you need security pass to take lift get from ticket office" (2+ floor up). 2nd Guard added " lift very slow, use stairs".

At this point we had spent 10 minutes as the only visitors trying to get into the room to see the painting. We decided to leave after 2 more very long escalators rides having not seen the painting we had paid for.

SO maybe it was cultural differences, maybe staff were bored and looking to have fun with those odd foreigners, maybe staff or management lack customer service skills.

My advice is to skip this one.

If you are determined or struggle with long staircases, rude staff and a poorly managed experience leave plenty of time.

We visited as we were passing on the way up to the Ski Jump and it was a horrible experience.

When we got in burly security people told us to put all our belongings in lockers (which is fine but it would be nice to have a smile!) and because we had a buggy with us we were told to go some bizarre route to the painting - when we could have folded it up and left it somewhere or carried it (which is what we are always allowed to do).

We got to the painting and they insisted the buggy went up the stair lift rather than us carry it which was again, bizarre. And then once we got up to the painting a security guard came and stood by the buggy like it was causing a problem. The place was EMPTY. The buggy was not in the way and we were not causing any problems. I have never felt like we were more of an inconvenience in all our travels.

We like to show our children new cultures and history and it would have been nice to spend a little while showing them details on the painting. But we left - it was a very odd uncomfortable experience and one I wouldn't like to repeat.

We visited the Panorama for 2 reasons, it was included in the city pass and the hop on/off bus stopped there. Unfortunately there was a HUGE school class trip there so it was very loud and noisey. They do not allow bags/back packs have lockers that charge a Euro to rent but you get the Euro back when you return to the locker, so don't forget to get your coin. The museum itself was nice with lots of beautiful photographs in the beginning but honestly we were rushing through to beat the kids that we didn't have a lot of time to read about things. I would recommend going if you have the city card, I probably wouldn't kill myself to make a visit if not.

Panoramic painting was excellent and wonderfully life like. But there was no commentary or explanation and no audio guides offered. Attached museum had some interesting artefacts but no English signs or descriptions. Some of Innsbruck's smaller and older attractions have English commentary so why not here in this new attraction?

My wife and I visited this in 1966 and re-visited it in Sept.2016. The new location is wonderful and the panorama painting and surrounding foregrounds are simply breathtaking. Be sure to pick up the audio at the ticket desk as this gives the history.

Well worth the trip, but for all those not wanting to walk the incline to the view, you can get the hop on hop off tour bus which stops off at this view.

The scope of the picture is amazing and Its new setting and background is perfect to get the feel of the Tirol versus Bavarian battle.They also have small recorders in English describing the events of the Battle and Its importance.Well worth seeing and is part of the Museum anyway so costs no extra.The Military Museum is also very interesting,the Battle scenes from WW1 in the Icy Alps where thousands perished on both sides in `tactical´avalanches just shows the inhumanity of War.The whole complex is well worth seeing along with the Ski Jump!
Have a great trip!
