Gudon Local Museum

The former Curator House houses the Local Museum of Gudon, which tells about the life in the Valle Isarco valley on four floors.

Gudon is a district of the town of Chiusa: Exactly here, there's the Curator House with its yellow facade, which can look back on a long history. This "Pfleghouse" next to the St. Martin Parish Church was the accommodation of the County Curator, because Gudon was already the seat of the high court from 1220. In 1886 its then owner, Josef Kröss, handed the building over to the community - this explains why the house is now also known as "Krösshaus".

The Gudon Local Museum - "Dorfmuseum Gufidaun" in German, "Museo Locale di Gudon" in Italian - was opened here in 2000. On four floors the museum tells about the life of the farmers, the handicraft, the housekeeping and the religious life in Gudon and surroundings. The objects were collected in loving detail work in order to preserve them for posterity. Narrow, originally preserved staircases lead to the individual floors, also an ancient kitchen can be seen. Centrepiece of the exhibition is the "Feilerische Epitaph", a grave picture from 1761. It was commissioned by the farmwoman Maria Prader because of the high infant mortality rate. One area is dedicated to the South Tyrolean painter Josef Telfner (1874 - 1948) from the Aichholz Farm in Gudon.

By the way: You can combine a visit to the Gudon Local Museum with a detour to the medieval Hohes Haus Residence (High House) in Gudon. Once the seat of the court, it has also been owned by the municipality since 1911. There you will find the interesting permanent exhibition "Treasure Chest Earth": The archaeological finds from the surrounding area date back to the Neolithic Age (5500 to 3500 BC). And how to reach the Gudon Local Museum? It is located in the centre of Gudon and is also accessible from Chiusa on foot or by bus.
