Museum of Popular Culture

The interesting Museum of Popular Culture is housed in a historic house under the medieval Arcades of Egna

Customs, habits and objects of everyday life - all this can be admired in the Museum of Popular Culture - "Museum für Alltagskultur" in German, "Museo di Cultura Popolare" in Italian - in Egna on the South Tyrolean Wine Road. The museum was opened in 1995 in a historic building under the Egna Arcades, one of the last unspoilt arcade houses of Egna village (Neumarkt Dorf).

These picturesque arcades with their stately houses, today a pedestrian zone, were built between 1300 and 1600, while Egna itself was founded at the end of the 12th century. Furniture, accessories and toys are spread over two floors and the attic, and show the bourgeois life of the 19th and 20th century in the old rooms. The foundation stone was laid by Anna Grandi Müller, who collected the exhibits in decades of detailed work from attics and flea markets. A museum was created which today looks as if the rooms are still inhabited.

Here you can see a needlework room and a dressing room as well as a classroom and a doll room, a smoke room and a sacred space. The Museum of Popular Culture is run by volunteers. And how to reach it? It is located under the arcades, outside parking spaces are available. Moreover it is accessible also by public transport, e.g. by bus no. 120 (Bolzano - Egna).
