Tagusa School Museum

Tagusa, a hamlet in the area of the beautiful Siusi Alp, shows in the old local school how lessons took place in earlier times

Everyday school life in a small hamlet at around 900 m a.s.l., few children, a constantly changing teacher, furniture that has remained unchanged for decades: the Tagusa School Museum is the second of its kind in South Tyrol after the Bolzano School Museum, 32 km away, and offers an unforgettable nostalgic insight into past times. The museum is housed in the former mountain school of Tagusa, a hamlet which consists of only a few houses.

Since the introduction of compulsory schooling in the 18th century, a so-called one-room school was housed here until 1993: All children of the primary school went to the same class. The local school reached its peak in the Fifites with 46 children. Numerous exhibits, old teaching materials and the former classrooms show the 60-year school history in the course of time: from the fascist period around 1933 to the times of autonomy and the Nineties. In spring 2022, at the first floor the old cobbler's workshop of the master shoemaker "Peterlunger Gustl" from the Fifties was added.

The museum - together with the Castelrotto Museum of Traditional Costumes and the Tschötscher Farm Life Museum - is managed by the Museum Association Castelrotto. And how to reach the Tagusa School Museum - "Schulmuseum Tagusens" in German, "Museo della Scuola di Tagusa" in Italian? The hamlet can be reached by car via a mountain road - it offers some parking possibilities next to the church. Alternatively the bus line 8 will take you there, or you can reach it in a 3-hour round walk from Ponte Gardena or Castelrotto.
