Much more than the name suggests

It gives you the idea about the history of the place and the mentality of its inhabitants. Full of rare objects and well conceived as a concept.

I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the reviews online. Knowing little about Tyrolean culture, this museum provided an interesting look into the culture through the integration of a large albeit somewhat odd collection of artifacts. The museum provides a scanner that can be used during the visit to enhance your experience. At various points there are bar codes... More

This museum kind of threw us for a loop. Lots of various items, some of them kind of strange. For instance, the collection of nativity scenes with a video of a huge human hand moving characters around. Then there's the church where they have many very large figures from the reformation, if I remember correctly. Actually, they're kind of spooky.... More

What a wonderful collection! There is a long section of rooms from different old Tyrolean residences, there is a section on typical costumes of Tyrol, but for me the main interest is in the many and often distinctly odd objets d'art that abound. These include a lot of statuary, including a St Sebastian who seems to be relishing all the... More

Buy an Innsbruck card and make this top of the list. Very interesting and you could spend hours taking everything in. The old houses rebuilt and as they were gives you a taste of how life was in Tirol

The museum has set up original old 16th-18th century rooms from different tiroler historical homes. What amazes me are the carvings on the furniture, walls or ceilings. HAND MADE! The museum also as a room displaying all kinds of tiroler costumes...men and women. The work sewing them. The designs. Just stunning. Other rooms from beautiful closets, chairs, tables with inlays..... More

Artefacts from the historic Tyrol region spread over three storeys. Perhaps the most impressive were the old wooden rooms which had been reconstructed along one corridor. Pity the rooms were not dressed up. We also liked to the costume display with the life-like wooden dummies. We used our Innsbruck Card to gain free entry.

This museum shares an entrance with the Hofkirsche, which is adjacent to the Imperial (Hofburg) Palace in the old town. You can buy a combined ticket to the museum and the church for 10 euros as of this writing, or both are 'free' with the Innsbruck Card. Pictures speak more than words in this case, so I'll include some with... More

The museum contains all sorts of artefacts from daily life in Tirol. (most exhibits were from 1500s onwards I think) There were also entire rooms relocated to the museum that give you a good impression of what certain houses looked like from the inside from the time-periods. The disappointing aspect was the new macabre exhibition style of the artefacts. (I... More

This museum is well worth a visit. They have an incredible amount of artifacts. Signage between various exhibits could be improved and the "Stube" exhibits would be more interesting if they were made to look like someone was living in the rooms in the correct era. Overall - I highly recommend this museum.
