Val Pusteria

South Tyrol Museum of Ethnography

Situated on a four-hectare piece of open ground, visitors to the South Tyrol Museum of Ethnography in Dietenheim near Brunico can explore the old, original farmhouses, craft workshops and farm gardens representative of various South Tyrolean valleys. It invites visitors to stay and enter into the everyday life of peasant society.

Original tools and equipment shed light on the skills needed on a working peasant farm in times past.

The core element of the open-air museum is the baroque Mair am Hof residence with its collections of folk art, religious traditions, costumes and zithers.

Exhibitions on the life of the nobility, craftwork and religious traditions can be viewed at the Mair am Hof residence.

Live farm animals and activities such as bread baking, hoeing and sheep shearing make this openair museum an adventure for the whole family.
