South Tyrolean Folklore Museum

The Folklore Museum in Teodone in Val Pusteria shows more than twenty South Tyrolean farmsteads in its open-air site.

The South Tyrolean Folklore Museum in Teodone is the oldest Provincial Museum of South Tyrol (Südtiroler Landesmuseen), an autonomous entity that comprises museums such as the South Tyrol Museum of Archeology. The centre of the museum is the ancient residence “Mair am Hof” with its lordly halls of the Baroque period. Constructed between 1690 and 1700 by the Sternbach family, it hosts folklore collections on popular devotion and arts. Moreover there is an agricultural building, where you can see farming tools and vehicles. Absolutely worth seeing is also the open-air site.

More than twenty original farmsteads of different South Tyrolean valleys can be visited in this open-air site of four hectares, including beautiful gardens and pets. The former way of life of the peasant population is illustrated in a highly impressive and agreeable manner. A visit to this museum is a worthwhile experience for young and old. By the way, according to the ADAC, German Automobile Club, the South Tyrolean Folklore Museum is one of the most beautiful open-air museums of Europe.

On a regular basis, there are also events taking place in the open-air site, involving kids making bread or discovering how wool is produced. By the way, from the open-air site you can admire Brunico with its churches and castle as well as the famous Plan de Corones mountain.
