Jenbach Town Museum

The local and nature museum dedicates one part of the exhibition to the South Tyrolean people in Jenbach.

In the heart of of Jenbach, the Town Museum tells the millennium-old history of alpinism and of skiing. Between the exhibits there are also scythes and railways, sculptures by Hans Pontiller (1887-1970), a local artist, and objects about the history of Jenbach from its beginnings until today.

The areas which are dedicated to nature, show butterflies, 300 domestic birds and animals, 300 exhibits of foreign snails and clams as well as the most popular edible and toxic mushrooms. Another part of the museum is dedicated to the South Tyrolean people, who left their homes in the course of the so-called Option in 1939 and were resettled in Jenbach. In those times, 376 families were brought to the North Tyrolean village.

The Jenbach Town Museum (Jenbacher Museum) covers an area of 700 sqm, spread over three floors. It is barrier-free, and has been certified with the Austrian Quality Seal for Museums and awarded with the Austrian and Tyrolean Museum Award.
