One of the most popular excursion destinations in the Tyrol
The museums unique location makes the visit a nature experience and a refreshing excursion for the whole family. 14 farms and 23 outbuildings were removed from the most diverse valley landscapes in Tyrol and faithfully rebuilt in the nine-hectare museum landscape.
You can walk into the old farms and acquire knowledge with all your senses. Standing in the small, rough-hewn rooms, you can feel the breath of history, the magic of the past.
Chickens and sheep live in the museum. Interactive stations give visitors an insight into the life of the farmers of the past.
Our favourite place
On a walk through the open-air museum visit the historic farms and outbuildings from all Tyrolean valleys.
The small school at the Zenzl farm is particularly worth seeing. Go to school just like in the old days. A great experience for the whole family!
