Local and Crib Museum Zirl

The collection of Christmas and Lent Cribs is the central topic of the Local and Crib Museum in Zirl.

The Local and Crib Museum (Heimat- und Krippenmuseum) in Zirl, only few km far away from Innsbruck, is well-known beyond the borders. Its unique collection of Lent and Christmas Cribs includes rare paper cribs, several Lent cribs and pompous Baroque cribs.

The documentation of the community history of Zirl can also be seen at the museum. Findings from the time around 1000 BC, objects from ancient village chapels and farms are shown. Part of the exhibition are also interesting sketches and paintings of Franz Plattner, a church painter. Founder of the Local and Crib Museum is the former primary school director Benjamin Flöss who started his collecting activities already after World War II. Finally the museum was opened in 1977.

In 1999 Zirl celebrated the 1,200 year jubilee of the first authentic mention of the name "Cyreolu" (Zirl). Today the Local and Crib Museum is located on the first floor of the old Zirl community hall and is a particular experience especially at Christmas time!
