The Local Museum Pfunds in the Tiroler Oberland area is situated in a lovely farmhouse from the 14th century
The Local Museum Pfunds (Heimatmuseum Pfunds) in the quarter of Dorf in Pfunds 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: The beautiful farmhouse from the 14th century, where the museum is located, has also a Nolpenstadel barn, 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 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.

Another topic are the Tyrolean freedom fights in 1809, where Franz Michael Senn, last judge of Pfunds, played an important part. In addition there are uniforms, ancient toys and religious art.
