Small Museum in Lana

The private collection of Alexander Schwabl in the Small Museum in Lana includes objects from two world wars.

The Small Museum in Lana dates back to 1991, when Alexander Schwabl found some World War II objects in the cellar of his house. Soon other finds from attics and storerooms were added. All this should also be made accessible to the public, and so today photos, field postcards, documents and newspapers, medals, uniforms, equipment of various armies, posters and trench work from both World Wars are exhibited in the rooms of the Small Museum in the Via Bottai road.

The aim of the museum is not only to preserve the individual soldiers' fates and the local history of the time for posterity, but also to make this collection accessible to school classes and to promote the culture of remembrance. By the way: The municipality of Lana has several other interesting museums and sights to offer, so that a day of culture should be filled. These include the South Tyrol Museum of Fruit-Growing in the Larchgut Residence and the Schnatterpeck Altar in Lana di Sotto, as well as the Farm Life Museum in the district of Foiana.

And how to reach the Small Museum in Lana - "Kleines Museum Lana" in German, "Piccolo Museo di Lana" in Italian? It is located in the Via Bottai road and is open all year round on request. The public bus stops in the adjacent Via Dogana road.
