The name of the Tyrolean State Museum is referable to Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.
The Ferdinandeum, founded in 1823, is named after Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and is one of 5 Tyrolean State Museums. This museum comprises 7 collections in the fields of art history, archaeology, history, natural sciences, and music. The historical collection is included in a permanent exhibition at the Zeughaus (Armoury) at Dreiheiligen, a quarter of Innsbruck.
In the basement visitors are informed about prehistory to Ancient Rome and the Early Middle Age, while on the 1st floor the focus is set on the Romanesque, the Gothic, the Netherlands collection with Rembrandt and Brueghel, and applied arts. Some of the highlights in the museum are a decorated bowl from the 12th century and a Biedermeier collection. However, the 2nd floor gives information about the Baroque and Biedermeier periods as well as the 19th century.
On of the main attractions from an architectural point of view is the so-called "Art-Box", venue for special exhibitions that are organised on a regular basis. The modern gallery is located on the third floor. From prehistory to the 21st century - a time travel of more than 20,000 years!
