This local museum in the Tiroler Oberland area is situated in a lovely farmhouse from the 14th century.
The Local Museum Pfunds in the Tiroler Oberland area gives an interesting insight into the rural work and living culture of former times. It shows rural tools and objects in a very special ambience. On the way to the parish church of Pfunds, in the quarter of Dorf, you pass a beautiful farmhouse from the 14th century.
The farmhouse, where the museum is located, has also a Nolpenstadel, a sacred space and a collection of arms. The installations like oven, stove, chimney and smoke flues are original and still fully functional. In the last 100 years no structural changes have been made, the house was inhabited until 1980. Today it shows the rural home with smoke room, larder room, parlour, bedroom and cellar. All in all the habitation gives the impression, that the owners will come back soon…
Also three show rooms can be found in the local museum. One room is dedicated to ore and its extraction because in the municipal area of Pfunds-Tösens ore was mined until 1925. Another topic are the Tyrolean struggles for freedom in 1809, where Franz Michael Senn, last judge of Pfunds, played an important part. In addition there are uniforms and documents, ancient toys, door locks and fittings as well as religious art objects exhibited. The local museum was awarded with the “Museum Award of Tyrol” in 2002!
