Museum of Tyrolean Folk Art

The Tyrolean Folk Art Museum in Innsbruck is situated next to Court Church and contains the most important collection of cultural artefacts from Tirol. Considered one of the most beautiful of its kind throughout Europe, the museum presents a fascinating romp through Tyrolean folk art, from old handicrafts and household items over religious and secular folk art to carnival masks, traditional costumes and 18th century nativity scenes. The museum as well houses some 14 carefully restored wood-paneled parlors from the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods, originating from all regions of Tirol, including North Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino. Strongly recommended: Visit the Court Church next door, home to the biggest Imperial Cenotaph in Europe: The church, also called “Schwarzmanderkirche” (literally “Black Men Church”), is famous for its namesake “Black Men” – 28 over-life-sized Renaissance bronze statues of important historical figures that flank the empty sarcophagus of Emperor Maximilian I.
