The museum wasn't on our original itinerary but I'm glad we visited because there was lots of interesting items to see, including traditional costumes and furniture. It sits within a former monastery and had a beautiful courtyard outside.

Handicrafts and artefacts can been seen at this museum. Children's playground is also there - even Tyrolian folktale book is also available in English/Italian. It won't take a day to finish seeing all the stuff. Benefit from the Innsbruck card and free entry.

I really liked this museum. They give visitors a hand held scanner that reads a code by each exhibit and shares information in your own language on the screen... Very efficient. The beautiful items and rooms on display really gave me an idea of the everyday lives of the people in the area. Well worth it to get the combo... More

An interesting museum that gives an insight into the old culture & lifestyle of the Tyrolleans. From traditional costumes, jewellery, utensils, furniture, farming and hunting implements etc. everything is displayed and explained in detail. The museum is next to Court Church in the old town of Innsbruck and one time entry is included in the Innsbruck card.

We went to the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum, not knowing what to expect, but needing to get out of the rain. It was wonderful. They had every kind of artifact. They had masks, statues and lots of replicas of what residences would have looked like at different time periods. Some of the artifacts were spooky. It was a great stop.... More

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
