Brunico Municipal Museum

In Brunico modern and contemporary artworks can be admired combined with some impressive historical collections.

In 1995 the Brunico Municipal Museum was inaugurated in a building in which once upon a time horses were changed, located between the entrance to the historic town and Piazza Cappuccini. Since that year the museum has been offering an appealing mix of historical collections and contemporary arts.

The symbol of the museum is the cope stone of Michael Pacher, originating from the church of Issengo. Moreover the museum offers local sacral artworks such as the late-Gothic winged altar by Simon and Veit from Tesido, masterpieces by artists such as Michael Pacher or Paul Troger as well as 12,000 book plates from all over the world. The historical pieces of the exhibition, shown in the Gothic room, come from the former Museum of Local History, dating back to 1912. The foundation of the collection, in those days, consisted of the estate of the chronicler Johann Nepomuk Tinkhauser (1787 - 1844).

The second focus of the Brunico Municipal Museum is set on contemporary and modern exhibitions of national and international artists. Five to seven exhibitions per year take place, in which various fields such as graphics, painting, woodcarving or photography alternate. As the museum has its own Graphic Workshop, it also offers courses for adults and kids.
