Jenbach Town Museum

One part of the exhibition at the local and nature museum of Jenbach is dedicated to the South Tyrolean people in Jenbach.

In the heart of of Jenbach, the local museum of the village is located which has plenty to offer. Scythes and railways, the millennium-old history of alpinism and the history of Jenbach - all that is part of the exhibition. 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. A piece of contemporary history! Also special exhibitions take place in the museum, as in 2017 the "History of the Advent Calendar" or "Hans Pontiller, Austrian Sculptor of the 20th century". Hans Pontiller was born in 1887 in Jenbach and created numerous wooden and bronze works. For 2018 the exhibition "The History of Medicine in the Course of Time" is planned.

The museum covers an area of 700 sqm, spread over three floors. Since 2016 the building is barrier-free, a lift takes the visitors up to the second floor. The Jenbach Town Museum (Jenbacher Museum) has been certified with the Austrian Quality Seal for Museums and awarded with the Austrian and Tyrolean Museum Award.
